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.

We expect to be able to start awarding/posting degrees on August 22nd, 2016.

The attached e-mail was sent to Summer 2016 graduation applicants indicating all coursework and exams should have been completed as of August 12, 2016. We asked applicants to review their Wolverine Track audit and make sure ALL requirements SHOW as complete by September 15, 2016. This includes (but may not be limited to): ANY Missing (‘M’) or Incomplete (‘I’) grades, grade changes, challenge/experiential credit, advanced placement (AP) credit, CLEP and DSST credit, departmental exceptions/substitutions, and transfer credit from other institutions.

Registration Referrals

Hello colleagues,

In the last week we have had the strange phenomenon of multiple students coming to the ACC stating that their major advisor referred them to us for assistance with class registration.  There has been several now, or we would have typically passed it off as confusion or a misunderstanding on the student’s part.

When we explain that they were sent here in error they obviously are not pleased and react accordingly.  We are not sure why this would be the case, but if you have students that need assistance with registration, please refer them to Instant Info, who are trained to provide this service.

Thank you!
The ACC team.

SB 196 & QL 1900

Dear Colleagues,

After a lengthy process of researching and understanding the ramifications of SB 196 (Math Competency Initiative), we will be awarding QL1900 to our first cohort of high school graduates beginning this semester.

As a reminder, these students qualify for QL1900 by scoring a 26 on the ACT or a 660 on the SAT in the math section of those tests.  Students are to be awarded the credit upon admission and we are currently solidifying an automated process to handle this for future semesters, this semester we will be doing it manually.  We will be sending an email to affected students this week informing them of the legislation and that this could impact courses that they are currently enrolled in or plan to be enrolled in.  Because QL1900 affects individual majors differently, we are encouraging students to speak with their advisor about their academic plan. For your information 1,948 students qualify for QL1900, 224 of those students are currently enrolled in a math course.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Transfer Credit or Admissions.

Thanks,

Kris Coles
