Students may view the master schedule and their personal block schedule in CRESS.
Students will use the Block Change Request form to make all changes to their existing schedule. These changes include vacations and externships.
Block Change requests require permission of the Course Coordinator. This may be by signature on the form or via email. The student is responsible for copying the permission and attaching it to the Block Change Form.
Block changes must be made two blocks prior. For example: No changes to Block 6 will be made in Block 5. All requests to change Block 6 MUST be made in Block 4 or before.
The Course Coordinator’s approval is required for all changes. This approval can be a signature on the Block Change Request form OR may be an email. The student is responsible for copying the email permission and ATTACHING a copy of it to their request.
The Student Services Office WILL NOT process Block Change Request forms until all required faculty approvals have been obtained.
Completed Block Change Request forms are processed on a first come, first served basis.
The minimum and maximum student numbers will be enforced by the Student Services Office. Students should not ask Course coordinators for permission to exceed the maximum number of students on the rotation. In most cases, requests to drop should not bring the total below the minimum. If a course coordinator signs permission for a student to drop or add and it affects the minimum or maximum number of students on the block, then the Student Services Office will contact the coordinator to confirm their approval of this before the changes are processed.
Each student will be limited to 6 changes the entire clinical year. 1 add/drop equals one change.
Students are responsible for checking their rotation schedules to see if the changes have been made.
In the event that a Block Change Request is NOT approved, Student Services will notify the student via email of that and will give the reason why it was not approved.
Academic Affairs office will be responsible for approving block change requests which fall into exceptions to the standard procedures.
