Midterm Grading

The deadline for instructors to enter Fall 2013 midterm grades in Banner was last night at midnight.  The midterm grade worksheet was closed this morning.  Students can view midterm grades in GoWMU or on an android or iPhone using the WMU mobile app.   

Banner


The Banner system was successfully upgraded on Sunday.  Banner self-service features were back up and available for students and faculty before 11:00 a.m.   Thank you to OIT and everyone who came in yesterday to test.  You should not see many noticeable changes as a result of the upgrade, but please let us know if you run into any unexpected problems.  

Holds


Not all hold types will prevent a student from registering for classes.  There are a few holds that are used by Accounts Receivable as place holders for students in the payment plan.  These holds include the PP, PE, and AG holds.  They are added to a student’s record to prevent the student from having an Accounts Receivable hold placed on their account.   If you are unsure if a hold prevents registration, you can always check the STVHLDD screen in Banner.    STVHLDD lists the different hold types and indicates a check mark by the action the hold prevents.

I ran across this article that was published in the Western Herald in May 1963 providing tips for students to help make registration a “relatively painless process”.  Since we are wrapping up priority registration this week, I thought you might enjoy it:
