FYI – Wolverine Track – Advisors experiencing issues when trying to Save/Create/Print plans?

I have had some reports from a couple of advisors that they are having difficulty creating/saving and/or printing plans from the Wolverine Track planner for some students. Are any other advisors experiencing performance issues when trying to create/save and/or print plans from the planner?

If so, please email wolverinetrack@uvu.edu with the specifics, for example: Which web browser are you using, the UVID(s) of students’ audits for whom this issue is occurring, and anything else you think might help us pinpoint what might be causing this issue and how to fix it.

Your help, as always, is appreciated. Thanks everyone!

Sincerely,

Chelsey Darrington

FYI – Department Holiday Leave Coverage

Dear Colleagues,

Happy Holidays!   We would like to send out a friendly reminder that the departments across campus will need to provide backup to their advisors if they are out for holiday leave during the next few weeks.   We have had a few students already come in this morning saying their advisors are not in and were looking for advisement from our center.

Unfortunately this only provides frustration on both ends as we have to refer the student back to the department as we are not able to advise students in these situations.  As you can imagine they get frustrated when we tell them we are not able to clear their holds and refer them back to the department for assistance.  As we do not advise any declared major students during the year, we should not be seen as a “backup” role when department advisors are out.

We kindly ask that each department have someone available to assist the students as has been agreed in Advisement Council.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this situation.

Regards and Happy Holidays

The ACC Team.

Policy Update – Readmissions Changes

As part of the Deferred Admissions and Leave of Absence process Enrollment Services has changed the number of semesters a student remains eligible to register following their last attendance. Previously the readmission rule was, 3 semesters (1 year) of non-attendance would require the student to readmit to become an eligible student.

Effective immediately we have moved to 7 semesters (just over 2 years) of non-attendance before a student is required to readmit. This means if a student has ATTENDED any semester Fall 2010 or later they are not required to reapply to return and register for classes (provided they have no active holds).

A few exceptions/notes to this are;

  • If a student graduated and has an “Inactive Graduation” status they will not be eligible, but these students can email admissions@uvu.edu to be made eligible.
  • If the student was a High School Concurrent Enrollment student during their last semester attended and they have not attended as a “regular” undergraduate student they will not be eligible. No Exceptions will be made to activate these students.
  • If the student was admitted/readmitted but did not attend that semester they will not be eligible. The only exception to this is if they were admitted for Fall 2012, otherwise No Exceptions will be made to activate these students.

If you have any questions please direct them to Admissions@uvu.edu, we will try to respond as quickly as possible.

Sincerely,

Ryan Burton
