7 Registration: The SCOOP 7 The SCOOP is online and provides information for students, faculty, and staff about the upcoming semester. Registrar Calendar, Sessions Calendar, eCore Calendar, Exam Schedule, and Standard Class Periods for 3 semesters General Enrollment and Registration Information Distance Education Information Tuition and Financial Information And much more… ….

8 Registration: The Class Bulletin The Class Bulletin is an online tool that allows the student to view the schedule of courses offered per semester. The information in the bulletin is updated immediately if changes occur to the section in Banner. Let’s take a look at the Class Bulletin https://grim.westga.edu/www/schedule.htm 8

9 Registration: On-Time Registration vs Open Registration On-Time Registration -Refers to the allotted time slot for currently enrolled students to register based on their class level and last four digits of SSN. Open Registration -Refers to the time period when ANY continuing student can register. Students currently serving a one term suspension, are readmitted, or are admitted as a transient are also eligible to register during Open Registration. **Honor Contracts and Independent Study forms can be turned in during this time as well. Example for Summer/Fall On-Time Registration Dates for Currently Enrolled Students: Current Seniors & all Graduate level students – March 23 Current Juniors ss# ending in – March 24 Current Juniors ss# ending in – March 25 Current Sophomores ss# ending – March 26 Current Sophomores ss# ending – March 27 Current Freshmen ss# ending – March 30 Current Freshmen ss# ending – March 31 9

10 Registration: What is a CRN number? The number in the Class Bulletin that students will need in order to register for a specific course A CRN number is a five digit number that specifies a certain section of a course. Fall Sections – “8xxxx” Spring Sections – “1xxxx” Summer Sections – “5xxxx” These identifying numbers also coordinate with the Banner term identifiers. Examples: – Fall 2015 – “201508” – Spring 2016 – “201501” – Summer 2016 – “201605” 10

16 Registration: Schedule Builder A program accessible through BanWeb that helps students determine their schedule for the upcoming semester. This program does not register the student, but aids them by allowing students to add breaks and select specific courses to generate a schedule to fit their needs. To access: 1.Go to BanWeb, Student Services & Financial Aid, and Registration & Fee Payment. 2.Students are taken out of BanWeb to Schedule Builder. Students must choose a term. 3.Student then must choose a campus or campuses. 4.Next students will choose a Part of Term and an Instruction Mode. 5.Then the student will arrive in Schedule Builder to search for courses. 16

19 Registration: Registration Overrides Faculty and some staff have the ability to override registration errors. Check with your Department Chair and/or Associate Dean for list of overrides you are allowed to give. 19

20 Registration: Drop/Add Period During the first week of classes, students have the ability to drop or add classes on BanWeb. The Drop/Add Period give students the opportunity to change their schedule for ANY reason. Drop/Add dates are listed on the SCOOP. Courses that are dropped are removed from a student’s record and will not appear on a transcript. ***After the Drop/Add Period, students may no longer add courses. ***After the Drop/Add Period, students may withdraw from a course, which results in no refund, a grade of W or WF, and the course remains on the student’s record/transcript. 20

21 Registration: Fee Payment Deadline Registration is not complete until all tuition and fees are paid in full. Tuition and fees can be paid online using a WebCheck or credit card (2.75% convenience fee if a credit card is used) or in person by cash, check, or money order at the Cashier Window in Aycock Hall. Fee payment deadlines are listed on the Bursar's Office website and in the SCOOP. If tuition and fees are not paid by these deadlines, classes will be dropped from the student's schedule. The Bursar's Office handles all fee payments. 21

22 WHY, WHEN, HOW, & MORE ROSTER VERIFICATION 22

23 Roster Verification Why? Roster verification is required in order to ensure proper distribution of financial aid funds. Federal Regulations require Financial Aid Offices to verify that students who get F's in a course actually "earned" the F, as opposed to getting an F because they never attended. (This regulation applies to students who received financial aid to pay for courses). The Financial Aid office uses Roster Verification and the Last Date of Attendance during Grade Reporting to evaluate earned F’s. The Financial Aid Office will contact each professor who assigned a grade of F to a student - IF that professor did not confirm attendance through the existing class roster verification process or at the end of the term during grade reporting. This process will not apply to faculty who verify their class rosters. It will only be used with those whose names show up on the "Did Not Verify Class Roster" list. When? Roster verification is available to professors at the beginning of each session after the add/drop deadline. The Registrar’s Office will notify faculty and staff of these dates via . These dates are determined by the Financial Aid Office to allow for ample time for financial aid disbursement. How? Roster Verification is completed in BanWeb. Professors are asked to indicate whether a student has Attended or Never Attended. Directions can be found on the Registrar’s Website at: 23

24 Roster Verification 24 What Happens? Once a professor verifies the roster and clicks Submit. Every student’s account will populate either “ATTEND” or “NEVER”. If a student is marked “NEVER” the system will generate an to the student and professor. A student marked as NEVER ATTEND (NA) will receive a “W” grade for the course. Periodically, the Registrar’s Office runs a process that will look at every student with “NEVER” status, and change their course status to Never Attend and award the grade of “W”. This process will generate another to the student and the professor. “The student below has withdrawn from the course indicated and awarded a grade of “W.” If this information is not correct, please contact the Registrar's Office immediately at

25 Roster Verification In addition to Roster Verification in BanWeb, Faculty members can use Grades First to report students that are not engaged. This process is controlled by the Advising Center and is not a part of Roster Verification nor is it affiliated with the Registrar’s Office. Faculty members can assist students falling behind in class through reporting in Grades First. This process, Early Alert - Early Intervention, is one of the recommendations that came from the President's Special Commission to Improve Graduation Rates. Please contact the Advising Center for more information. 25

26 WHY, WHEN, HOW, REFUNDS, & MORE WITHDRAWALS 26

27 Withdrawal: Withdrawal vs. Drop Withdrawal No longer active in class Will remain on Roster with status of withdrawn Receives a “W” grade before Midpoint, “WF” after Midpoint Course stays on student’s transcript as a withdrawal No refunds for withdrawing from one course Drop No longer active in class Will be removed from the Roster No grade is awarded Course will not show on student’s transcript May result in a refund if fees have already been paid 27

28 Withdrawal After the initial drop/add period has passed, students can officially “withdraw” from a class by the withdrawal deadline. Before the mid-point of a term, a withdrawal equals a grade of “W” and will not affect the student’s GPA. After the mid-point and withdrawal deadline for a term or session, a withdrawal equals a grade of “WF” and will count the same as an “F” in the student’s GPA. If a student withdraws via BanWeb. The system will generate an to the student and professor. 28

Withdrawing from ALL Courses- The student must fill out a Complete Withdrawal Form and receive the appropriate Advisor or Director Signature as indicated on the form.

32 Withdrawal: Hardship Withdrawal A Hardship Withdrawal is an exception that permits a student to withdraw from all courses after the official Drop/Add period during the semester. A Hardship Withdrawal is an exception based on unusual or emergency circumstances beyond the student’s control, and the student must withdraw from all classes during the current term. 32

33 Withdrawal: Process of Hardship Withdrawal The student seeking a hardship withdrawal must initiate the request through either Health Services (Physical) or Counseling Services (Psychological or Personal). Professional staff will make a determination for the request for hardship withdrawal. Final Approval for students with a declared major, Dean of the College (or her/his designate); for undeclared students, Honors College. If the request is granted, the student will receive a W for each course. Academic office notifies the Registrar’s Office and the paperwork is processed. 33

34 Refunds If the student is entitled to a refund, the student should contact the Bursar’s Office, located in Aycock Hall. The Bursar’s Office can inform the student of when the refund will be disbursed to the student’s HigherOne Account. 34

35 Refunds “Refunds for a complete withdrawal (all courses) will be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total number of calendar days in a semester. There is no refund for a partial withdrawal from the University. Financial aid refund recipients may be required to repay a portion of federal or state financial aid received or credited to their account if the student withdraws. 35
