Graduate Application Deadline approaching

If you plan to complete all of your courses in the Spring 2012 semester, or during the 2012 summer sessions, you will need to apply for graduation on Wiser.  The graduation application deadline is March 16You may not get a confirmation of your graduation application sent to you; but you can run a new audit, and at the very top, immediately under your ID number, you will see a new line: GRADUATION DATE: 06/01/12 (or appropriate August Date) the day after you successfully apply for graduation.  You can also confirm it with the Registrar’s Office directly if necessary.

Students who complete all course work and graduate in December 2011, May 2012 and August 2012 are invited to the Commencement Ceremonies held on June 1, 2012.  If you know that you will need to take summer classes, but have applied for May graduation, you will need to go to the Registrar’s Office to change this.  Anyone with a May graduation application on file will not be able to register for any summer or fall classes because the University assumes you will be done with coursework at the end of this semester and does not give you access to Wiser registration functions for future terms.

Top Five Reasons to Declare your Concentration TODAY!

5) It’s easy. Just go to the online concentration declaration form and enter the data. You probably know all the answers already.

4) It’s required. Since you can’t graduate without a completed concentration, and we know you want to graduate, might as well declare it as soon as you can.

3) It’s fun. Well, completing the form might not be the most fun you’ve ever had, but as a declared concentrator, you’ll be invited to informational and social gatherings with faculty in your new department and get information about internships or other special opportunities for students in your discipline.

2) It’s connective. You will then have access to the College of Management Academic Advisors who can explain the concentration requirements and help answer questions about degree progress toward graduation.  You will also be included on communication departments have with their concentrators, and will be able to meet with CM faculty mentors who can also help guide you in your concentration area.

1) It’s important. Over the coming months, more and more access and information will be dependent on you having declared a concentration in the College of Management. Once you declare your concentration, it will also appear on your degree audit and you will be able to track your progress toward concentration completion and have a list of concentration requirements for you.

To be eligible to declare your concentration, you must:

– Have earned 60 credits (here or through transfer credit)

– Completed at least one semester in the College of Management (this means anyone who started at UMB this spring, or was just admitted to CM through the Inter College Transfer Process would not be eligible).

If you meet these eligibility requirements, you are encouraged to declare your concentration today!

There is a new url for the CM student portal.  To visit the CM Student Portal, please use this NEW link – https://cmstudents.umb.edu/.  It looks very similar to the old url, but now has an ‘s’ after the http.  (In the past, you may have been able to simply type cmstudents.umb.edu and it would access the site.  This will no longer work).  A page will pop up regarding the website’s security certificate, please click “continue to website” to install the website certification.  The site will then ask for your username and password.  You may consider bookmarking this page so you only have to type in the url once.
