cuernavaca meetings Revised 2018

 

¡Bienvenidos!

Hola estudiantes,

The student blog has now been updated with all course syllabi for the Spring 2018 Semester.

Be sure to select from CAMPUS or WEB classes as appropriate. Please note also that there is a special page for students enrolled in the SPAN 1441 & 1442 courses offered on the Ft. Worth campus.

SPRING 2018 UTA BLOGREMINDERS:

1. ACCESS TO CONNECT (once your Connect course has been paired with Blackboard – check with your instructor first)
If you are taking SPAN 1441 or are a transfer student and need to purchase access to Connect (where you complete online assignments for campus classes / all coursework for web classes) for the first time but are waiting for funds to arrive for financial aid, etc., you can take advantage of the Courtesy Access to be able to gain access to your assignments immediately. Courtesy access is good for two weeks. Instructions for this are in the registration files on the blog pages for each level.

2. HERITAGE SPEAKERS ENROLLED IN BEGINNING SPANISH (SPAN 1441) 
As stated in the course description for all Lower Level Spanish courses, heritage speakers are not allowed to take beginner level courses. If you have previous knowledge of Spanish, you need to take the CLEP test to determine if you can place out of all 4 levels of Spanish or if you should begin in Level 2 or 3.  Keep in mind that you can get letter grade credit towards your GPA! Click HERE for information about taking the CLEP test!

3. HERITAGE SPEAKERS ENROLLED IN SPAN 2314 If you are a heritage speaker of Spanish who took the CLEP test, and still need to take Level 4 Spanish, you SHOULD be enrolled in a section of SPAN 2315, which is Intermediate II Spanish designed for heritage speakers and which addresses your specific needs with respect to grammar and composition.

Courses in SPAN 2315 are offered at these days and times for the Spring 2018 semester:

DAYTIME =  SPAN 2315-001   TR       12:30-1:50 p.m. 
                       SPAN 2315-002   MWF   10:00-10:50 a.m.                                    
EVENING =  SPAN 2315-003   MW     7:00-8:20 p.m.

For any questions about transferring to one of the above sections, please contact the Modern Languages office immediately at: 817.272.3161 or email: modladvisor@uta.edu

If you have any other questions, please email me or your instructor.

Best wishes for a successful spring semester!

Saludos,
