Important message about emails during the summer months

This post concerns emails received from May 24 through August 16, 2013. Please read it carefully:

If you are a new international student submitting an orientation assignment, you will receive a response. Please be patient and allow a minimum of seven working days for me to respond to your orientation assignment. To insure that you do receive a response, you must follow the directions for submitting your assignment exactly as indicated on the orientation assignment PDF document.

I will not be able to respond to other student emails received between the dates named above. If you have academic planning questions, please see our FAQs page: http://www.dvc.edu/org/departments/counseling/counselingfaq.htm;  my presentations http://www.authorstream.com/tag/misham; or contact the DVC Counseling Center to see if counselors are available to see you: http://www.dvc.edu/org/departments/counseling/ Also, refer to previous emails you have received from me or from International Student Admissions and Services that contain valuable information.

You may contact the International Student Admissions and Services office if you have questions about international admissions, your I-20, student fees (including health insurance), housing, technology issues with the DVC InSite Portal or Web Advisor, or other topics that do not concern your academic planning. Their email is isas@dvc.edu.

If you are a DVC colleague, I will respond to your email as soon as I am able.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Have a fantastic summer!
