Comments Off on Your MAP Miles and MGT 490 Registration

Your MAP Miles and MGT 490 Registration

As a student in the College of Management you are required to participate in the Management Achievement Program (MAP). Students in MAP must complete 80% of their required MAP miles before registering for MGT 490. You can view your earned MAP Miles by logging into SA Groups and can 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 anyone with fewer than 80% of their miles earned. Once all pre-requisites for MGT 490, including MAP Miles, are earned, you should be able to register yourself for MGT 490 on Wiser.

If you believe there is a discrepancy with your MAP miles (posted, or total number required) on SA Groups, please email MapCM@umb.edu

Comments Off on HOLD on a minute!

HOLD on a minute!

Registration for the Fall 2018 semester AND Summer 2018 starts on April 2 for students with 100+ credits (and continues to open for all students throughout April).

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 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 menu on the right. One box will say “Holds” and list any that you might have. Holds can go onto your account at any time, so you should check here periodically.

You are encouraged to remove these NOW, so that when your registration appointment arrives, you can enroll in summer and fall 2018 classes with as few obstacles as possible.

Test Before the Rest

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 ALEKS Math Placement Exam (MPE). This testing format can be done at home – or anywhere you have computer access – not just the UMB Testing Center.  If you have not yet taken a placement exam, we’d encourage you to do so as soon as possible – and if you want to improve your score or further your understanding of certain math concepts, use the learning modules in ALEKS.  This is great resource for students.

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.
