How do I … ?

Dropping and adding courses may be done through your student account Self-Service on DataVU during Drop/Add at the start of each semester.  A video tutorial is available for students to learn more about how to Drop or Add courses via Self-Service DataVU.  Click here to view the tutorial.  After Drop/Add is completed, students may withdraw from a course through their student account on Self-Service DataVU until the midpoint of the semester.  After the withdrawal deadline has passed, students must complete a Petition to Withdraw After the Deadline, found on the Forms web page.

Once the schedule of courses is released for the following semester, please meet with your advisor to discuss course selection and for your advisor to remove the advising hold.  After the advising hold is removed on Self-Service, you may register for your courses through your student account on Self-Service DataVU.  Click here for additional registration assistance resources.

Registration will not be allowed if you have holds on your account from the Graduate Office, Student Accounts, Health Center, or other campus departments.  Please ensure your account is free from holds by looking on your user profile on Self-Service DataVU.

Employment can be an important part of a student’s educational experience while on campus. Many of our students find employment on and off campus.  To search for work study related jobs, please visit Handshake, an on-line database that houses all jobs and internship opportunities for Valpo students. When searching for work study related jobs, please use “work study” in the search box for easier navigation.

Many graduate students are required or encouraged to pursue an internship as part of their graduate program.  Students should consult their program director to learn about opportunities specific to their program of study.  Additionally, students may search for internship opportunities through Handshake, an on-line database that houses internship opportunities for Valpo students, submitted by outside employers and organizations.
