various acronyms

GWT, DPR, 665, RD and VA… what does it all mean?

A, B, C… most students have a good understanding of what these mean.  Students strive to earn more A’s than C’s, and struggle for a C when they think they might earn a D or F.  When meeting with your advisor, though, they will quite often throw around letters, numbers and acronyms you might be less familiar with.  What’s an EO?  Is GWT a building code?  I keep hearing about 1037, and all I want to do is withdraw from my Spanish class…  Refer to the terms library to quickly learn what all these numbers and letters mean.
