* Be on the lookout for an email/phone call coming regarding:
1) Any past outstanding POS submissions
2) Invoices for Winter Quarter missed classes beyone 2 excused absences: CAA only gets paid by SARC when students are in attendance; each missed class is $27.42 of money we don’t get from SARC, so after 3 missed classes, we ask for private payment back so we can pay the bills.
3) Submitting revised application/policy document if you haven’t already done so.

#CollegeofAdaptiveArts Mission Moment: 

A student who earned his undergraduate diploma last December refused to accept it because he thought it meant that he would not be able to come back.  Both co-founders emphatically explained that he could come back forever.  He looked at them like they were a bit absurd and stated, “Well, you’ve got to go home sometime.” <3
