In preparing for the fall 2012 switch from a quarter-based academic calendar to a semester-based academic calendar, the University of Cincinnati commits to a partnership with students that promotes the successful transition.
As with any partnership, expectations exist between the parties. Each UC student making the transition can expect that advising resources will be available to assist him or her in defining a specific path to degree completion. This path will be determined in consultation with an appropriate advisor and will be recorded through the completion of an Individual Advising Plan (IAP).
The university expects that each and every UC semester-conversion transition student will work with an advisor to create and approve an IAP. Any and all students who work with the appropriate UC advisor to plan and then follow an IAP receive the following three pledges from the university. Students who do not work with a college or university official to create and approve an IAP should not expect the university to honor the following pledges.
