Students are expected to complete several academic forms prior to the deadlines listed below. Please

The Academic Advising Questionnaire: Mandatory for all students and must be submitted by June 30th for students entering in the fall ’13 and January 10 for student entering in the spring ‘14. The information you include will be critical for your work with your faculty advisor and will be shared with only those individuals who can further assist in advising you.
Online Placement Tests: Students who will be taking French, Spanish and Latin must take the online placement tests prior to August 1 for Fall 2013 or January10 for Spring 2013. If you have never taken a language then you should not complete an online placement exam. Students will find this test under the “Orientation” tab once they login into my.sbc.edu.
Plagiarism Test: In taking this mandatory plagiarism assessment, you will help us, help you to avoid the potential pitfalls of not correctly acknowledging another's thoughts, words or ideas. If you do not successfully pass this assessment, you will be required to attend a review session. Students will find this test under the “Orientation” tab once they login into my.sbc.edu.
Quantitative Reasoning Test: Sweet Briar College's Quantitative Reasoning (QR) Test is a mandatory test taken by students in their first year and again in their senior year, for the sole purpose of assessing the QR component of SBC's General Education Program. While the test is mandatory, your score on it will not affect your college standing in any way. In other words, we are testing you only in order to evaluate the effectiveness of SBC's QR courses (the ones
that are designated III.Q). So please do not be nervous about taking the test, but please do take it seriously, both now and three years from now, so that the results will be meaningful! Students will find this test under the “Orientation” tab once they login into my.sbc.edu.
ePortfolio: Mandatory for all students and must be submitted by Aug. 1st for students entering in the fall of 2013, Jan. 10 for students entering in the spring of 2014. If you do not successfully submit this assignment, you will be required to attend a review session during Orientation. You can find further instructions for ePortfolio creation and assignment submission on the ePortfolio site: http://sbc.edu/eportfolio/new-student-eportfolio-assignment
Entering Student Inventory (ESI): New students will receive instructions for completing the ESI via email in early June.
