Havilah, do you work full time? How is it being a full time student and working full time, if you do.
Martene
01:16:48
I may have missed the answer to this. I have a BA but I have 30 credit hours worth of work after the BA with stronger more recent grades. In calculating gpas will just those stronger 30 credit hours be looked at or will 30 credit hours from the BA be used as part of your past 60 semester hour calculation?
Melissa M
01:17:23
can you explain a little between the Teacher Librarian and other credential…
sandracurrier
01:17:35

Hi Allison- I’m part time at San Diego Law Library and part time at the iSchool. I was offered the Reference Librarian position while getting my MLIS- I hope this makes sense!
Allison Schottenstein
01:19:49
Yes, thank you Havilah
Norma Magadan
01:19:51
The document deadline for spring is Dec. 20. Do I need to send official transcripts to SJSU if I graduated with a bachelor's from SJSU?

01:20:00
