Summer 2016 Graduation 1st Posting Complete

We finished the 1st round of awarding/posting degrees on August 26, 2016.

The attached e-mail was sent to the remaining Summer 2016 graduation applicants indicating that if Summer 2016 graduation requirements are missing in Wolverine Track at this time, the student is in risk of having their graduation denied. We also noted that all requirements must show as complete in Wolverine Track by September 15, 2016. This includes (but may not be limited to) missing/incomplete grades, grade changes, surveys, exceptions/substitutions, challenge/experiential credit, and transfer credit from other institutions.

Sincerely,

Advisor Quickpoll: New Admission Deadline Feedback

Advisors,

As you may remember, with the support of Presidents Council, this fall we closed admission to UVU on August 12th.  Our goal was to give students, advisors, and other staff a full week to help students get registered, without adding hundreds of new students into the mix.  We hope this helped each of you as you worked with incoming and continuing students.  To help us better understand how this impacted your day-to-day, please take a moment to answer two questions in the quickpoll located at this link: http://uvu.qualtrics.com//SE/?SID=SV_3t4zlkabvsKr2Yt.

We are also very open to any additional feedback you want to include.

Our goal is to continue to monitor the deadline to make sure we are offering incoming students the best possible service and support.

Thank you for all you do.

Director of Admissions

Math Substitutions

Some questions have come up about Math Substitutions so we put together some information that may be helpful.

Sorry that this sounds like a “textbook” response, we just want to disperse more specific information for our advisors.

If a student seems to be struggling with math, please feel free to send them to Accessibility Services in LC 312, 801-863-8747 to make an appointment!  We love to help students who have, or may have a disability.  At times, we may be able to assist a student struggling with math through other types of accommodations than a math substitution, depending on the qualifying documentation.  Please do not have students request a specific counselor.  All of the Accessibility Services Counselors are equally trained and the front desk will help them get in to see a counselor.  The counselor does not make the math substitution decision, it is passed on for approval.  The documentation, being thorough, relevant, and significant is what makes the decision.  The documentation must show that there is a specific and significant disability in math.

Math Substitutions are rare and are not a waiver; it only provides a substitution.  It can only be substituted with one class (and the students agree that it is not easy).   Try not to mention which class this is.  (If they take this class first, and the substitution does not work, they will be even more frustrated and behind). The substitution is not a solution for students who would like to graduate earlier or because the student should be graduating soon and still has a number of math classes to take.  Fewer than 1% of students will qualify for a math substitution.

The documentation cost is the responsibility of the student and the required tests can take some time to complete.  Student Health Services is a bit cheaper but it also has a 4 month waiting period before the student can begin this testing. For these reasons, please do not promise a math substitution process but just send them our way for resources.  A promise might cause the student a great deal of frustration if they do not qualify and may waste precious time needed in meeting their math requirements.

Please feel free to ask questions at any time.  We would love to hear about any concerns and will try to find solutions that will work for your students.

Many thanks!!

RE: Academic Standards

Dear Advisors

There was a IT glitch with the probation holds that were placed. You will notice 2 probation holds placed (Aug 29th and 30th), please clear them both once the student has done the workshop. Sorry, we have corrected the problem.

thanks

Registration Policy

As a reminder, the English & Literature department has never approved late adds into their courses as beginning a course in the second or third week of the semester is not conducive to student success.  In addition, the department would like to remind all that UVU policy states, “students may not attend classes for which they are not officially enrolled.” (UVU 2016 – 2017 Graduate & Undergraduate Catalog)  Being on a waitlist is not the same as being officially enrolled.

Academic Standards

Dear Advisors,

Thank you so much for all the work you do with students. Academic Standings have been run for summer semester. Holds have been run for students on Probation, Continued Probation, Suspension, Continued Suspension, and Dismissal.  Holds will be run after September 8th for Academic Warning. This is hopefully to help students make some last minute changes to their schedule, while also setting them up for success in the next semester.

Please remember as you work with students on Continued Probation that it is important they meet with the Standards Office to review their standing. Our office will remove the CP hold.  It is our opportunity to make sure they understand the critical nature of their semester, and that they face suspension if certain standards are not met. We also want to establish relationships to help them find the support they need to navigate back to their success.

Again, thank you for all you do and if you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office.

Sincerely,

Academic Standards Office

MyUVU issues

Here is the latest update on the myUVU problems we are experiencing today.

A hardware failure on Friday took out 1/3 of our capacity on the servers that service myUVU. Those server are expected to be repaired by tomorrow.

In the meantime we are working to add extra resources to myUVU to stabilize it until the repairs are completed.

We are also trying to make sure that students know that they can get to Banner through the UVLink URL that’s on the myUVU landing page.
