September 10, 2012


As of this morning, our fall enrollment is 24, 538.  The official census count will be taken at the end of the day tomorrow.  It is critical that all students attending fall courses are registered in Banner so they can be accurately reflected in our census counts. 
In addition, to prepare for census please ensures that all sections have the correct instructor of record listed and all sections on hold have been cancelled or made active.


The waitlisting notification was turned off this morning and any student still waitlisted for a fall section will be dropped by 8:00 a.m. tomorrow.   Departments may add students into waitlisted sections tomorrow as they see appropriate.

Major and Minor Changes

As a reminder, changes to a student’s major or minor occurring after Tuesday will need to be made effective in Banner for the Spring 2013 semester.   This is to prevent a student’s fall tuition from being reassessed if they are moving to, or from, a college with differential tuition.
