spring 2017 schedule building

general education guide

The General Education Guide has been updated on the Registrar's Office website for the 2016/2017 academic year.  A link is also provided in Degree Works.  An advantage to accessing the General Education Guide in Degree Works is that it will automatically display the appropriate guide for the student based on their catalog year.

success guide

In preparation for the start of orientation, the 2016 Student Success Guide has also been updated on the Registrar's Office website.  The Success Guide includes general information about FERPA, the registration process, Degree Works, preferred name, important dates and other items of interest.

eLearning - preferred name

If a student has a preferred first name established in Banner, that name will display in Elearning in place of the legal name.  However, in order for the preferred name to display in the chat feature in Elearning, the student must change their alias setting.  This can be done by clicking on the Setting icon and then entering their preferred name in the Alias field.

dismissed students

Students who have been academically dismissed will be dropped from their Summer II courses on Thursday, May 26.
