Great question (DACA) is a United States immigration policy that allows some individuals with unlawful presence in the United States after being brought to the country as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for work. Some of these students can receive benefits.

It says we can start signing up for summer/fall classes on the 22nd. Do we get moved to a new advisors for the vs the one we got originally when we started our journey?

@ Sarah: Great question! New students will be reassigned to us (student services advisors) during 2nd week of each semester. You will find your assigned student services advisor’s contact info on student portal and your advisor will help you with summer and fall 2021 registeration.

@Daishunna Please contact the Accessibility Dept directly if you have questions. In general, a note from your doctor must be submitted to the Accessibility dept in order to prove that you have a disability and to proceed with accommodations.
Darrien Robertson

How do you apply for the refund?
Cynthia Crosby

Thank you for your encouraging description
Anthony Davis
01:08:27
This may be different per class. but the requirements for discussions seem vague. Is it just at the instructors discretion?
Cassandra Carpenter
01:08:30
if deadlines are due at midnight in California are they due at 2am in Texas?
Ann Gaffney
01:08:50
@cassandra-YES!
Abraham Shahinian
01:10:25
It would help if professors indicate which topics go to Participation grade

We’ve been encouraged to dive in the first couple days of a module, Mon - Wed, getting through all material, submitting at least a draft of assignments by Wednesday, and posting multiple times early on. And, instructors aren’t available on weekends. It seems we don’t have the whole week to get through the module, but more like half the week. Does this sound right?
Abraham Shahinian
01:18:02
I want the Professors to be using the AAU Classes app, or check a Topic Called Instructor's Office, this topic contains questions about the assignments and that's priority
Alexander Otto
01:18:19
@Nana of course! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Kathleen_ArtU
01:19:16
Students, any other questions as we wrap up?
Levi Curry

Your recording this right? Where can I find these recordings if I miss a meeting like this?

Levi Curry

Darrien Robertson
01:22:13
So to be clear, just opening your class and speaking in the comments. Is that how you are accounted for?
Ariella Wirya
01:22:19
Thank you!
Jessica Zhang
01:22:32
Also I just want to remind everyone to always participate by making discussion posts and comment on each other’s posts throughout the week. Participation is very important, especially for online only classes.
Cheryl Dreyer
01:22:37
Thanks to you as well, Aaron!
Jaclyn Campbell

I use pocket time a lot. I have 5 kids, a business, and a part time job, 2 girls in girl scouts, and a son in sports.
MANUEL FLATTS
01:22:42
I appreciate your advise.
Will Carduner
01:23:15
@Darrien Your instructors will want the online discussion to simulate an actual in person discussion, so posting as much as you can will help to maintain your participation grade
MANUEL FLATTS
01:23:42
Thanks
Darrien Robertson
01:23:43
Great, thank you.
