CAMPUS NEWS & EVENTS
|Autumn Quarter Grades Due Dec. 18|
Autumn Quarter grades are due in Student Academic Services (SAS) by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, December 18. Grades may be submitted to SAS via the web, in person, placed in the SAS drop box (located outside of Demaray Hall 151), mailed, or faxed to 206-281-2669. Timely submission of grades helps students and offices with important processes such as the academic dismissal process, disbursing financial aid, and processing enrollment verification. If instructors want grades to appear on the web before December 18, they need to contact Coordinator of Student Records Kelli Knapp at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can roll the grades to academic history. If there are challenges when grading students, please contact SAS PRIOR to the grading deadline. We may be able to assist with resolving the situation. If you have questions concerning grading or meeting the University deadline, contact Kelli at 206-281-2636 or at email@example.com
|Passports Required for Air Travel Into United States|
Effective January 23, 2007, citizens of the United States will be required to present a passport to enter the United States when arriving by air from any part of the Western Hemisphere. The Department of Homeland Security states that this change will increase security as well as efficiency as it significantly limits the number and type of acceptable documents for entry. For more information, visit the website.
|IRS Standard Mileage Increase|
Please note that the IRS standard mileage rate will increase as of January 1, 2007. The new rate will be 48½ cents per mile for standard business transportation. Please contact Payments Department Lead Marci Walden in the Finance Office at 206-281-2527 with any questions.

|Peer Advisor Nominations Needed by January 4|
