FOR SUMMER 2017 TERMS AND FALL 2017 SEMESTER

SCHEDULING PROCESS

Faculty advisors will be enrolling current Blue Mountain College students in summer 2017 and fall 2017 classes as follows:
Seniors – week of February 27
Juniors – week of March 6
Sophomores - week of March 20
Freshmen – week of March 27

Students are asked to follow instructions listed below:

1. Each degree-seeking student must meet with his/her advisor to obtain approval of his/her summer 2017 and fall 2017 class schedule. Advisors will then enroll the student in his/her summer and fall courses. Non-degree students will enroll in classes through the Office of the Registrar.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!
Students planning and enrolling in online courses--especially the summer online courses--should be certain that they know the beginning and ending dates of the courses (i.e., the Term I online summer courses taught following the distance education program schedule begin May 1, before the spring semester is over, and the Term II online summer courses following the distance education program schedule will not end until August 20. Other online courses taught following the regular academic calendar will begin on May 29 and end on July 23.)

2. Each class (seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen) will be expected to complete the scheduling process for the summer terms and fall semester within a week's time. Space is limited in some classes so it is imperative that each class complete the scheduling process within the deadline given.

REGISTRATION

If you have questions concerning the enrollment process, please contact the Office of the Registrar. Registration for the summer terms and fall semester is not complete until each student has completed required forms and has obtained clearance from the Business Office. (A GPS link will be available on the Blue Mountain College Web Site at a later date. This link will direct all students to required registration forms and specific registration information/deadlines. Watch for an upcoming announcement with more details and deadlines. You can track registration progress through document tracking on your student portal.) Charges for the fall semester will be announced soon after approval by the Board of Trustees.

NOTE: Advisors of candidates for degrees for summer 2017 will need to be certain to enroll these students in their summer coursework.

FOR SUMMER 2017 TERMS AND FALL 2017 SEMESTER

SCHEDULING PROCESS

Faculty advisors will be enrolling current Blue Mountain College students in summer 2017 and fall 2017 classes as follows:
      Seniors – week of February 27
      Juniors – week of March 6
      Sophomores - week of March 20
      Freshmen – week of March 27

Students are asked to follow instructions listed below:

1. Each degree-seeking student must meet with his/her advisor to obtain approval of his/her summer 2017 and fall 2017 class schedule. Advisors will then enroll the student in his/her summer and fall courses. Non-degree students will enroll in classes through the Office of the Registrar.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!
Students planning and enrolling in online courses--especially the summer online courses--should be certain that they know the beginning and ending dates of the courses (i.e., the Term I online summer courses taught following the distance education program schedule begin May 1, before the spring semester is over, and the Term II online summer courses following the distance education program schedule will not end until August 20. Other online courses taught following the regular academic calendar will begin on May 29 and end on July 23.)

2. Each class (seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen) will be expected to complete the scheduling process for the summer terms and fall semester within a week's time. Space is limited in some classes so it is imperative that each class complete the scheduling process within the deadline given.

REGISTRATION

If you have questions concerning the enrollment process, please contact the Office of the Registrar. Registration for the summer terms and fall semester is not complete until each student has completed required forms and has obtained clearance from the Business Office. (A GPS link will be available on the Blue Mountain College Web Site at a later date. This link will direct all students to required registration forms and specific registration information/deadlines. Watch for an upcoming announcement with more details and deadlines. You can track registration progress through document tracking on your student portal.) Charges for the fall semester will be announced soon after approval by the Board of Trustees.

NOTE: Advisors of candidates for degrees for summer 2017 will need to be certain to enroll these students in their summer coursework.

RESERVING DORM ROOMS AND CAMPUS HOUSING FOR FALL 2017

It is time to reserve your room for the Fall Semester.
1. Before coming to our office (Student Services), pay your $10.00 room deposit in the Office of Business Affairs.

4. If you are not planning to return to campus housing, please notify the Office of Student Services.

*Friday, March 31, is the deadline for “holding a room”. Your failure to reserve a room by that date will

Good Morning,
“Play Week” has arrived and I encourage everyone to make plans to take in this very entertaining production. Arsenic and Old Lace opened last night in Garrett Auditorium. Evening performances are scheduled for 7:30 on Thursday and Friday. Let’s pack the auditorium each night and show the cast and crew our support!

Congratulations are in order for our men’s and women’s varsity basketball teams for having qualified for this week’s SSAC conference tournament. We wish the teams and coaches much success in the opening round of play today. The girls play at 1:30 and the guys at 3:30.

I offer today a special word of thanks to Jean Harrington for her leadership of our staff GROW BMC prayer initiative and to Jessie Jacobs for her leadership of our student GROW BMC initiative. They are directing us to the throne of grace as we seek God’s favor and guidance in growing BMC. Touch base with either of them for more details on how you can be involved.

Speaking of prayer, watching the BMC community join hands and hearts in prayer on Saturday when Justin McClellon injured his ankle during the basketball game was a reminder to me of how special this place is and how blessed I am to serve among such a faithful and loving group. Continue to remember Justin in your prayers; it is a testimony to God’s great goodness and to the power of prayer that Justin’s ankle was dislocated but not broken!

We remain hopeful that we will be playing ball on March 10 at the Sportsplex. As the attached photo attests, the scoreboard is ready to go! Thank you, Stan!

Good Morning,

It is a beautiful Monday morning here on the Hill, making for a great start to another busy week at BMC. We look forward to welcoming Gary Linville home as he comes to deliver our chapel address today. On Friday we will welcome B.J. Canup, owner of Tremont Floral in Tremont, Mississippi, as our guest speaker.

Tomorrow Dr. Anthony Bullard and student Page Rowland Thorn will be honored in Jackson as the recipients of this year’s HEADWAE awards. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Bullard and Page for this accomplishment.

On Thursday we will welcome several members of our Board of Trustees as well as some special guests to participate in a planning session for our full Board meeting on Friday. We are thankful for each member of our Board and for their service to Blue Mountain College.

Athletic options abound this week; check our website for details on baseball, softball, basketball, and tennis. Saturday marks the final home game of the basketball season. We will honor our seniors at the games in Tyler Gymnasium beginning at 2:00.

Tonight at 5:30 Mary Beth Russell will present her senior worship project in Garrett Auditorium. Friday night at 7:00 William Thompson and Drew Warford will perform their junior voice recital. Our Chorale will be in concert this coming Sunday night at First Baptist, Baldwyn, at 6:00. Please come to as many events as your schedule allows and show these students your support.

Many thanks to the congregation of Carrollton Baptist Church and Pastor Fletcher Moorman for the warm welcome yesterday. It was a delight to be with you, to hear Dr. Thad Moore’s inspiring message, and to fellowship over a delicious meal.

Blessings for a wonderful week,

Good Morning,
Congratulations to all Patriots fans for an exciting come-back win in last night’s Super Bowl! It was a fun game to watch and a good reminder of the rewards that accompany perseverance and focus.

“Ample” doesn’t begin to describe the opportunities that this week affords the BMC community. Numerous guests will spend time on campus this week, beginning with Dr. Bill Simms in chapel today. The Finance and Administration committee of our Board will be here this afternoon, followed by Maggie Garrett, our guest vocalist, who will perform at 7:00 in Garrett auditorium. This concert is a featured event in our Carter Lectureship series and is open to the public.

Tomorrow we are pleased to host our annual math/science tournament. Please join me in welcoming these students and their teachers to our campus.

A host of faculty from several sister institutions will be here this week and next week to lead academic program review sessions in several of our departments. This week’s guests include faculty from Union University.

On Thursday our Executive Committee will return to campus to make preparations for the full Board meeting on February 24.

Of course, there is no shortage this week of athletic events. JV basketball will be in action in Tyler Gymnasium tomorrow night at 7:00; the varsity teams will be at home on Thursday and on Saturday. Topper tennis begins its season on Friday in Jackson. Best wishes to Coach Creekmore and the team for a great season!

Kudos to our Topper baseball team for being 5-0 with the start of the season. They take to the road tomorrow but will be back at home Friday and Saturday. Please plan to show these athletes your support.

On Friday I will have the opportunity to share some thoughts with you in chapel. I covet your prayers as I prepare for our time together.

May the joy of the Lord be your strength throughout this day and this week.
