Test Before the Rest

As you start to think about your schedule for the upcoming term, you should also be sure that you have completed all necessary placement exams.

If you plan to take a BC course (either BC 230 or BC 290), you will need to take the College of Management Writing Assessment (CMWA).

If you plan to take your first math course at UMB, or your first math course in over a year, you will need to take the Math Placement Exam (MPE). Your MPE results will expire within a year, so if you took the test, but did not take a course, a more than a year has passed, you’ll need to retest.

If you plan to take a foreign language course, you may also need to take a placement exam. It is wise to consult with the department offering the language to assess if you need a test, and which test to take, especially if you have any previous experience of any kind with the language. If you are specifically interested in the Spanish Placement exam, please visit this site.

The CMWA, MPE and Spanish placement exams are offered through the UMass Boston Testing Center.

Don’t forget to apply for Graduation!!

If you are planning on graduating in May or August 2013 the deadline to apply for graduation is next Friday, March 15th!!

If you weren’t able to get a CM Graduation Quick Check this week you can come in and see an advisor during walk-in hours to verify the date you should apply for in WISER.

 

Not sure how to apply for graduation??  Check out these steps to walk you through the process!

All graduating undergraduates must declare their intent to graduate by applying online through the WISER system.

First, log into your WISER account and look under the academic tab in your student center to make sure all of the majors, minors, concentrations, and or tracks declared are correct. If the information listed is incorrect or incomplete, fill out the Change of Major, Minor, or Program of Study form, obtain the appropriate signatures, and submit it to the one stop center for processing. If it is correct then you can apply for graduation.

To Apply for Graduation:  

  1. You must apply through WISER. Once logged in, select Academic Planning>Planner>Academics>Apply for Graduation.
  2. Click on the program you plan to graduate in and it will bring you to another screen.
  3. From the drop down menu select the term of your graduation. PLEASE NOTE: FALL=DECEMBER; SPRING=MAY/JUNE AND SUMMER =AUGUST. Click continue.
  4. On the next screen, select submit and, if you are eligible, to apply you will receive a message that you have successfully applied for graduation. If you are not eligible to apply, it will let you know and you will have to rectify the problem.
  5. Please print a copy of the confirmation for your records. (Print from a computer that will print the date on form.)

Your next step is to:

Submit Your Diploma Name

  1. You must submit how you would like your name on your diploma through Wiser Self-Service.  Once logged in, navigate to home and select Personal Portfolio then name section.
  2. Select ADD A NEW NAME.
  3. Select Degree and put your name the way you would like it to read on your diploma.  Remember, your degree name must include both your first and last name as it is listed on your primary name at the university. If for any reason you are unable to submit your name the way you would like, please come to the Registrar’s Office.
