Registrar's Notes

July 12, 2010

Fall textbooks

A reminder that by now all required and recommended course materials should have been requested by faculty using the online form from the bookstore. Please also note that if no textbook or other materials are required or recommended for a section, that should be noted so that students know they have nothing to purchase for the course.

Chairs can view course materials by running the cognos report for their department. The report is in the Schedule Building Reports-Banner folder, and is titled ‘DEPT:Textbook List for Scheduled Sections’.

Textbook information can also be viewed by section on the course offerings page, https://www.wmich.edu/classlookup, by clicking on the course title.
