Contact <a href="mailto:dlit@andrews.edu">dlit@andrews.edu</a> if you have questions.</p> Thu, 14 Jun 2018 18:00:14 +0000 Reach your Andrews Financial Advisors by Email http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/49494 <p> While it is always a good idea to email a detailed message to your academic or financial advisor, construction dust makes this a necessity during May 2018. With graduation celebrations just over, the Student Financial Services area renovation is fully underway. For the next few weeks, student financial advisors and staff members are temporarily displaced, working from a number of loaned spaces. Phones cannot be answered, but voicemails are being checked regularly and calls returned from phones in other departments.</p> <p> Please email rather than phone for assistance with financial questions in this first month of summer classes. We look forward to the improvements the new configuration will bring.</p> Thu, 10 May 2018 12:20:43 +0000 Login challenges? Reset your Andrews password. http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/49493 <p> Since ITS made a change on May 1, a small number of students have been unable to login to LearningHub or Banner. If this happens to you, resetting your password will enable you to login again within seconds.</p> <p> Please help communicate this simple solution to classmates, faculty and staff as applicable. If resetting the password does not work, please email <a href="mailto:helpdesk@andrews.edu">helpdesk@andrews.edu</a> or call 269-471-6016 during business hours.</p> Thu, 10 May 2018 12:19:20 +0000 WORKSHOP: Course Tune-Up http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/48499 <p benton="" font-size:="" helvetica="" letter-spacing:="" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; color: rgb(102, 106, 115);"> <span style="padding-top: 0px;">Kick-start your summer or school year by revising one of your courses (online, blended or face-to-face).
