All MLS Bridge students, both prospective and current, are initially advised by the MLS Bridge Coordinator with the guidance of the MLS Program Director. Additional advising may be provided to the student by an academic advisor.
The MLS Bridge Coordinator and the academic advisor will assist you in academic matters and offer guidance consistent with the program’s requirements. Students who elect to pursue an irregular enrollment sequence or who fail to progress through the curriculum in a customary manner due to academic deficiencies or though withdrawing from courses may encounter personal inconvenience and additional expenses.
Students are reminded of the official University Policy concerning student responsibility published in the current University Catalog which states:
“Students are personally responsible for completing all requirements established for their degree by the University, College, and Department. It is the Student’s responsibility to become informed of these requirements. A student’s advisor may not assume these responsibilities and may not substitute, waive, or exempt the student from any established requirements or academic standard.”
It is the responsibility of the student to notify the MLS Bridge Coordinator with his/her intentions for course registrations, such as the semester, the number of hours you plan to take, etc. on a regular basis.
General inquiries submitted to the ULM GOLD website will be replied to with general program information. A more specific evaluation of previous coursework and admission procedures can be obtained at the prospective student’s request by contacting the MLS Bridge Coordinator.
Upon acceptance into the program, the MLS Bridge Coordinator will provide you with a list of courses remaining and a tentative sequencing of courses based on your progression intentions. Be sure to retain this information throughout the program so you will be able keep up with the courses you need to take each semester.
Each semester, a “hold” is placed in the system that prohibits a student from registering for courses until the student has been advised. Advising will take place following the publishing of the “Schedule of Classes”.
The GOLD Schedule of Classes contains the online courses for the following semester and is made available a few weeks before registration begins.
Registration for Summer and Fall courses usually begins around the first of April, and registration for the Spring semester usually begins around the first of November.
Availability of courses varies and may be dependent on enrollment; to avoid this problem, students are advised to register the first day possible at the earliest time possible.
