instructor studentLooking for ways to spend less money on your education? One of the perks of being a candidacy student in the Interior Design Certificate program is that you can become a Teaching Assistant or Librarian and earn up to $600 in course credit! These positions are limited and have certain restrictions, but if you are interested in becoming a TA or Librarian, read below to find out if you’re eligible.

Teaching Assistants are often hand chosen by instructors. However, if you would like to volunteer for the position as a TA and are eligible, please discuss the opportunity with the instructor of your choice. If that instructor agrees that you would be a good fit as a TA, the last step is to request approval by the Arc+ID department. At this point, contact the program directly at arc_id@uclaextension.edu or (310) 825-9061 to finalize the decision.

Program Information & Updates – Holidays & Events

Unfortunately, this update won’t contain any information about the subject on all our minds, the MIA program. However, we want to make sure you are all prepared for the next couple of weeks:

1) The Resource Library at 1010 Westwood will be CLOSED all next week (March 22 -26) so our librarians can tend to their finals. The library is open this Wednesday (3/17) from 10am -7pm, and Thursday(3/18) from 2:30 – 7pm so please make use of these hours! Because of past problems with messes, theft, and general disarray we cannot allow students into the library without a librarian present. We thank you for your understanding.

2) Our office, and the UNEX buildings, will be CLOSED next Friday, March 26th for Cesar Chavez Holiday. This means that we will be unable to assist you at this time, and that projects cannot be turned in that day. Please be sure that you turn in your projects on time and please make a note of that closure date. Also, please remember that we CANNOT keep projects indefinitely due to limited space, and we are NOT responsible for projects left in our office longer than two quarters. It is your responsibility to check on these projects and pick them up in a timely manner. Thank you!

3) Please remember that most courses require you to drop by the second week of class for a refund. Be sure to check the refund dates of the courses you are enrolled in for Spring. You can do so by looking at the PDF Catalog. Also, Please note that SUMMER 2010 enrollment will begin online April 12th.

4) If you wish to be a librarian in a future quarter please email hhintzen@uclaextension.edu to be added to the waitlist. You must take Surface Materials to serve as a librarian but you will be added to the waitlist with a disclaimer if you have not yet completed this course. Librarians earn money toward the cost of a class for their service.

5) Please check out our Scholarship blog posts for information about upcoming contests and prizes. There are several deadlines quickly approaching! Also, be sure to check out PDC’s WestWeek 2010 next Wednesday and Thursday, and our ASID UCLA Extension student chapter website for information about future events. Also, consider volunteering for the A+D Museum or the Venice Garden & Home show to earn some cool benefits/ freebies. We’re trying to help you, and make sure you have fun! Hugs all around.

Thank you for making note of the updates, and we hope you can attend the events/win some of the generous scholarships out there!

Finals Week Office Hours & Library

If you wish to access the library please try to call our office in advance to be sure that somebody is available to open the door for you. PLEASE NOTE: The library cannot be opened before 9am or after 7pm.

The office hours at 1010 Westwood building remain the same 10am – 7:30pm Monday – Thursday, and 10am – 2pm on Friday. However, the office will CLOSE EARLY THIS THURSDAY (12/10) at 6pm. Thank you!

Fall Library Hours

Hello Arc_ID students! Fall resource library hours will begin on Monday, September 21, 2009. Starting in fall 2009 we are implementing set hours, meaning they will remain unchanged each quarter so that students will no longer have confusion regarding varying hours. The schedule is as follows:

Monday: 10am – 2:30pm
Tuesday: 10am – 7:00pm
Wednesday: 10am – 2:30pm
Thursday: 2:30 – 7:00pm
Friday: CLOSED

We have attempted to stagger them so that those who have odd hours, as well as those who work 9-5 jobs, will have ample opportunity to access the library. The hours are always either 10am – 2:30, or 2:30 – 7pm (or on Tuesdays BOTH!). If you need to reference the hours they are always listed at the top of the page under the tab “library hours.”

Resource Library: Extended Hours this week

THIS FRIDAY ONLY the Resource Library will be open from 11am-3:30pm, no earlier & no later. If you have preparation for finals to arrange, this is the week to do it! The library will continue to be closed on Fridays in the future. This is a one-time deal. Best of luck with finals everyone!

(PS – we will be announing our set Library hours starting in Fall in the near future.)
