What’s in Your Shopping Cart?

Wiser offers a feature called the shopping cart. This allows you to select classes you are interested in taking, and keep track of them until your enrollment appointment. Having a class in your shopping cart doesn’t guarantee you a seat in the course, nor does having a class in there indicate that you have met all of the pre-requisites for registration.

When your enrollment appointment arrives, you should be able to go back to your shopping cart and complete the enrollment request – which means you are officially requesting that Wiser add you to the courses. At that time you will get an official confirmation of your enrollment, or an error message, that will give you more information once you click on it. And, we always encourage you to check on any error message you get – so that you can see if you can solve it yourself. Errors can be caused by holds, missing pre-requisites, two classes at the same time, and other registration issues.

Once you have completed your registration, your cart should be empty. You can leave classes in the cart, or add other classes to it if you are planning to make changes to you schedule before the end of the add/drop period.

Comments Off on Your MAP Miles and MGT 490 Registration

Your MAP Miles and MGT 490 Registration

Students who started in the College of Management in the Fall of 2006 or later are required to participate in the Management Achievement Program (MAP). Students in MAP must complete 75% of their required MAP miles before registering for MGT 490. You can view your earned MAP Miles by logging on to the CMWeb, as well as view a schedule of upcoming events there and here on the blog (MAP page or weekly posts).

It is important to note that we cannot save a spot in MGT 490 for someone planning to complete their MAP miles, or register students with fewer than 75% of their miles earned.

Once all pre-requisites for MGT 490, including MAP Miles, are earned, students should be able to register themselves for MGT 490 on Wiser.

How to Prepare for a Meeting with Your Advisor

Summer and Fall registration starts the week of April 1. Some students have an advising hold which makes a meeting with an advisor mandatory; and students without an advising hold are still strongly encouraged to meet with someone before registration. Below are some tips on advising preparation and making the most of your registration advising session.

Make an appointment early (with a University Advising Center advisor); or plan to come to walk-ins NOW (in CM, for declared concentrators). Waits for advising only get worse as registration gets closer.
Be prepared. Print your degree audit before you meet with an advisor, and bring it to your session.
Do your research. Look over your degree audit for remaining requirements and then look on Wiser and/or course wizard to see which requirements are being offered in the upcoming semester. Add those to a list of possible courses options to discuss with your advisor.
Write down your questions – and ask them! After looking over your degree audit, you should spend some time thinking about classes you might want to take, questions you might have about policies or your graduation progress.
Be open to having an honest and (hopefully) enjoyable conversation with your advisor about your courses and future. Remember we are here as partners with you to help you meet your goals while navigating the university system.

Comments Off on Who’s your Advisor?

Who’s your Advisor?

All College of Management students have an academic advisor that they should consult with before registration, or making other significant decisions regarding their schedule, enrollment plans, or graduation path.

CM students with a declared concentration can see any of the advisors in the College of Management Undergraduate Program Office during walk-in hours. While there is no advising hold on CM students with declared concentrations that mandates advising, you are still strongly encouraged to meet with someone each semester.

CM students who do not have a declared concentration see an advisor in the University Advising Center (UAC). There is a hold on the registration record each semester as well, which makes advising mandatory. UAC advisors are assigned to students with the following alphabetical split:
– Christyn Carey: sees students with last names A-E
– Michael Mahan: sees students with last names F-Liz
– Jared Abdirkin: sees students with last names Lo-R
– Priya Rawana: sees students with last names S-Z

Students in special programs such as Management LEAD, the honors program, or student athletics may have an additional advisor as well.

The name of your personal academic advisor can be found on your student center on Wiser.

Comments Off on HOLD on there!

HOLD on there!

Registration for the Fall 2013 semester starts on April 1 for students with 100+ credits (and continues to open for all students throughout April); and registration for summer 2013 courses opens for ALL students on April 1.

Before you can register, there are several things you should do, including meeting with an advisor and being sure all of your holds are removed. A hold is something that can prevent you from making changes to your registration or enrolling in classes for a future semester. There are several types of holds that might be on your account, including:

– Advising hold (you must meet with your advisor in the University Advising Center to have this removed)
– Bursar or Financial hold (see the Bursar’s Office about any billing issues that might have prompted this hold)
– Emergency Contact hold (you are the only person who can remove this! Just update your emergency contact information on Wiser each semester to lift this hold)
– Immunization hold (see Health Services about removing this type of hold)
– Library hold (please see the Library to learn more about why this hold might be on your record)
– Parking Ticket hold (see the Parking and Transportation Office about these)

To see if you have any holds, log on to Wiser, go to the Student Center page, and check the blue sidebar on the right. One box will say “Holds” and list any that you might have. Holds can go onto your account at anytime, so you should check here periodically.

You are encouraged to removed these NOW, so that when your registration appointment arrives, you can enroll in Summer or Fall 2013 classes with as few obstacles as possible.
