Comments Off on Patriots Day Events

Patriots Day Events

The events that occurred in Boston on Marathon Monday weigh heavy on our hearts.  Our sympathy goes to those who lost their lives and incurred injuries, as well as their loved ones.  And we have immense gratitude for all that the first responders and public safety officials of the city have done in the face of great turmoil and danger.

Events like these can impact each of us in unique ways, regardless of proximity to the event.  We recognize that our students come from a wide range of backgrounds that, when combined with a tragedy like this, can result in a variety of reactions.  We would like to remind you that there are staff and services available to help you process this through the Counseling Center on campus.

If you live or work in the Copley area and are facing any logistical or practical obstacles; or interference with your courses, please let us know.  Our advising staff can help you access specific resources and help you navigate any current hurdles.  We will be available to talk with any student impacted by the events of Monday afternoon during our business hours, once the campus re-opens.  If you need to see an advisor in our office about this outside of our regular walk-in hours, please mention this blog post at the front desk in our office (M-5-610) so that someone can talk with you.

You are all in our thoughts.

The Undergraduate Program Office Advising Staff,
Amy, Mara, Becca and Dave

Comments Off on What the What? My class is full ALREADY?

What the What? My class is full ALREADY?

Have you said or thought that this week? If so, you’re probably not alone. Every registration period one section or one course seems to fill up much faster than others. When that happens, there are a few things that we do to help students. First, when all the seats in the entire course are full, we ALWAYS encourage students to add to the waitlist. This helps us get a true sense of how many students want to take the course and it gives us a case for trying to add another section or increasing the enrollment limit in the current section.

Naturally, there are many logistical elements that go into this process that impact our ultimate success in being able to offer more seats of a certain course. First, we need a place to teach it – so we consult with the appropriate people to find a room that will work for the class. If we decide to just increase the size of the current section, we need to be sure the room assigned can handle it. We also need someone to teach and additional section of the course if we go that route – so we look through the ranks of full time instructors, adjuncts and others to find a qualified person. Then, we go through the process of getting the course posted on Wiser and thus available for student enrollment. This can whole process can be quite lengthy. When we’ve been able to confirm additional seats, we then send an email (through Wiser, to your UMB account) to all enrolled and waitlisted students to notify them of the new seats. When a new section is made available, anyone can swap into or add the new section. When additional seats are added to the existing section, students are moved off the waitlist in order. There is no really way to know how long all of this will take, so we appreciate patience with the process.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, there are times when we cannot offer additional seats in a given term for a variety of reasons. When this happens, we look to add another section for the following term. You should also note that we only consider adding extra seats when an entire course is full – so if your first choice for MGT 330 is full, for example, but there are seats in other sections of the course, you should try to take one of those instead. We encourage students who are having scheduling difficulty to see an advisor as we can talk with individual students about specific options for staying on track for graduation and completing certain requirements.

Comments Off on Last Day to Withdraw from a Course is Right Around the Corner!

Last Day to Withdraw from a Course is Right Around the Corner!

April 11 is the last day for course withdraw (this means you are dropping at least one course while also staying enrolled in at least one course this semester). Before you decide to take a W in a course, there are a few things to consider and steps to take.

Talk with your instructor: while you might have been keeping track of grades and the weight each one has in your course grade, it is always a good idea to confirm with the instructor that your grade expectations are the same as his or hers. This is especially helpful if part of your grade consists of class participation or unreturned assignments that you don’t have enough information about yourself to calculate into your course grade. Once you have idea from the instructor directly where you stand, you will be well informed to make a decision about withdrawing from that course.
Talk with you advisor: there could be longer term effects on your graduation plan if you withdraw from certain courses. You should check with an advisor to see what impact, if any, a W would have now.
Talk with International Students and Scholars Services if you are at UMass Boston on a student visa, as there could be serious ramifications if you drop below full time status at any point in the semester. Full time is considered 12 or more credits.
Check your financial aid: Federal guidelines require that students not only have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA, but also that 2/3 of your course work is successfully completed. A W, INC, or F is not considered satisfactory completion. If you drop below either of these standards, you can lose your financial aid. So, dropping one course while you are enrolled in just 2 your first semester, for example, would be harmful, dropping one course while enrolled in 5 courses in your first semester would keep you in good standing as far as this completion rate goes. Remember, you are also financially responsible for any course you withdraw from at this point.

Dropping a course is an important decision, and one you are encouraged to think about thoroughly. The April 10 deadline is also very strict – so gather all the information you’ll need to make this decision now, so that you can take action, if necessary, in time.

Can’t get into a CM course on Wiser? Use the online form for help

If you are a College of Management student and cannot add into a CM class on Wiser that you think you should be able to add to, you have an online form to help. This allows advisors to look into the situation, and manually add you the course, if possible.

Please bear in mind that when you have a hold, are missing pre-requisites, have a time conflict with another course, or are already registered for the maximum allowable credits for the semester, completing this form will still not allow us to add you to the course.

This form is for College of Management courses and College of Management students, ONLY!

This form, and others that might be useful to you can be found under the Student Resources link on the CM website.

Comments Off on When is YOUR Appointment?

When is YOUR Appointment?

So by now you’ve heard that fall registration starts on April 1. But does it for YOU? Students are given access to the registration system in a staggered fashion – with the students who have earned 100 or more credits getting access to the system first. The date that you are allowed access to the registration system is called your “Enrollment Appointment” – and you can find your personal appointment time on your Wiser account.

Here is how the enrollment appointments roll out for UMB undergraduates:
April 1: students with 100+ credits
April 3: students with less than 100 credits but at least 75 credits
April 5: students with less than 75 credits but at least 55 credits
April 8: students with less than 55 credits but at least 30 credits
April 10: students with less than 30 credits

As always, we recommend that you register as soon as possible, once your enrollment appointment arrives.

These dates are assigned by the Registrar’s Office. If you have any questions about when your enrollment appointment is, please contact the Registrar’s Office directly.
