CORRECTION

In the September 1 edition of the Crimson White, the headline “UA student discusses his Katrina experience” was incorrect. The headline should read “UA student discusses her Katrina experience.” The CW apologizes to Taylor Miller, and is happy to set the record straight.

Fall II class registration underway

Registration for the Fall II semester via MyBama will take place until the deadline of Oct. 1. Classes begin on Sept. 27 and end at the same time as regular semester classes, meaning that the Fall II semester is a shorter, 10-week period. Although some classes will take place in a traditional classroom setting, most Fall II classes will be taught online through the College of Continuing Studies. Hours count as part of the maximum course load of 16 hours. Tuition may increase as a result of Fall II courses being added to a schedule; as such, students should go to the student receivables website at http://studentreceivables.ua.edu in order to determine if aid, tuition, or scholarships will be affected. Students receiving federal financial aid should contact the financial aid office before signing up for Fall II classes. For more information, contact Rebecca Pow at 348-6025.
