Course Registration Reminders:
•    Prerequisites for spring College of Business courses have been monitored over the winter break. Students who are in violation of a prereq have been notified and will be notified again on January 11. Instructors will receive a list of students who remain in violation before the semester begins and we ask that you follow-up with these students about their missing prereq if/when they attend your class(es).

•    Please note that Business faculty cannot sign students into Business classes using an add slip. Refer students to Sarah Wilson in 1200 Gerdin to assist in the registration of Business courses.

•    Registration for Business classes will remain open on AccessPlus through the 5th day of the term (Friday, January 18). On the 6th day, class registration will close and courses may only be added in 1200 Gerdin with special permission. If you have other wishes (e.g. no adds after the 2nd class meeting, adds are okay until the end of week 2, etc.),  please contact Sarah at


Thank you to all the faculty who assisted with recruitment events, prospective student visits, and special programs throughout the fall semester!
