Make-Up Process & E-mail
PAWS Preview is mandatory for all students who have fewer than 30 hours of college credit prior entering Texas State University. Students who missed all or part of the program can find out what they need to make up by going to the following website:
Students who missed any components of PAWS Preview 2013 will receive an e-mail in the weeks following the first day of class detailing what components they missed and how to make those up. The e-mail will also contain a link to the make up site as well so students can check up on their progress.
New Student Convocation
Any student missing Convocation must go to the reference desk in Alkek Library and check out the DVD recording of the program. Once you watch it, you must log into the makeup page and complete a quiz.
Alcohol Wise Course
All students must complete the alcohol course online that can be found at here. You should have received an email with instructions to complete the course. If you cannot find the email or if you have not done so, go to the website, and use your Texas State e-mail to log in. Every student should enter "BOBCATS" as their password. Once you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to change your password. You can then click on “forgot password” and you will receive a new password to log in and complete the course. 30 days after you first complete the course, you will receive a reminder to do a follow up survey. You must do this to complete the requirement.
You can go through the course all at once (approximately an hour to 1 ½ hours) or in mini-visits – whatever works for you. However you choose to do it though, you need to complete the course by 5 p.m. on October 15, 2012 or you won’t be able to register for your Spring 2013 classes. A hold will be placed on your record at the end of the make-up period until this portion is complete. Once you complete the Alcohol Course, you will be able to register for spring courses.
All other portions of the program can be made up from any computer with internet access. As soon as all portions of the program are made up and confirmed your hold will be removed.
NOTE: If you begin to take a makeup quiz and log out of the program before you finish, it will consider you complete and score the questions answered. Unanswered questions will be counted wrong. There is a waiting period to retake the quiz. Plan ahead to finish in one setting!
