January 13, 2014


Spring 2014 census will be occurring Wednesday.  In preparation, please make sure:

  • the correct instructor of record has been entered in Banner for all sections
  • sections on hold have been cancelled or made active
  • all students attending have been registered so they will be counted in our spring census numbers.  This includes students completing thesis and dissertation hours, independent studies, internships, seminars, etc.


Waitlist notification will be turned off this afternoon for the spring semester.  Any student still remaining on a waitlist will be removed Wednesday morning, January 15.   Departments will then be able to register students into waitlisted sections on census day as they see appropriate.    If you would like to print a list of students waitlisted in a section this morning, you can do so in Banner on the SFAWLPR form.
