Roadrunners look ahead to spring semester as registration approaches

OCTOBER 12, 2020 — UTSA will open registration for the spring 2021 semester starting on October 19. As mentioned in President Taylor Eighmy’s September 8 email to students, faculty and staff, modalities for the university’s spring courses and campus operations will be very similar to this fall—mostly online, with a limited number of courses meeting face-to-face based on strict criteria.

All face-to-face courses will offer a parallel online component for students who are not able to attend in person. The course modalities listed in ASAP reflect how each course is expected to be delivered when classes resume in January.

Students will once again register for classes based on their priority group or classification within a designated registration period with specific start and end dates.

Looking to make a passive income? I’d buy these 2 cheap UK dividend shares in an ISA today

This allowed it to resume dividend payments after pausing them during the earlier part of 2020 in response to a rapidly-changing operating outlook.

The company currently has a yield of around 5%. Its dividend payouts are expected to be covered almost twice

Three Strategies For Recession-Proofing Your Business Today

Kelly O’Neil is a multi-award winning profit strategist and brand-marketing expert and CEO of Innovate Media Services.  

If you’re starting to see signs that the struggling economy is affecting your business, now is the time to implement strategies that will ensure you not only survive but thrive in an economic downturn.

While every business needs to take multiple factors into account when developing a strategic plan, there are three top strategies
