Welcome to Ross! We look forward to seeing you at Orientation starting on August 14. To learn more about the process for course registration for your first semester in the Full-Time MBA program, be sure to review all of the information below carefully and check back for updates!
- Registration Planning: Get Ready
- Core Requirements: Get Set
- General Registration: Go!
- Important Rules and Policies: What You Need to Know
General registration opens on August 14 at 8 a.m., and the University catalog and schedule of classes for Fall 2013 is now available on Wolverine Access. Be sure to review the schedule and the information below before registration opens.
A. During the Fall semester of your MBA1 year you will primarily or exclusively be taking required MBA core courses (see Core Requirements below). Core must be taken in the assigned term, and therefore cannot be dropped unless you've been approved for a waiver.
A. MBA1 students who do not waive any core will take 15.75 credits of core in Fall 2013 (see Core Requirements below), which is considered a full course load. The University allows students to enroll in up to 18 credits per term, so students will have space to add an additional degree requirement or elective during the Fall B half-term if desired.
Q. How can I find out what courses are being offered and when?
A. You can view the full University schedule (including Ross and non-Ross courses) on Wolverine Access, or via the Office of the Registrar, which has a helpful CSV file version that can be downloaded and filtered to identify Ross classes. For general overviews of business courses being offered each term, browse the Ross course descriptions.
Academic Services will load incoming Full-time MBA1 students into the required Fall 2013 core by August 12. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you are registering for and completing the appropriate requirements over the next two years (e.g., Communication requirement, Law/Ethics, World Economy).
Q. What are my core requirements?
A. Be sure to review the core curriculum for Full-time MBA students to make sure you understand the degree requirements for the Full-Time MBA program. Students who don't waive any Fall core will take 9 credits in Fall A and 6.75 credits in Fall B for a total of 15.75 credits in Fall 2013. Students who waive core may wish to schedule an appointment with their Academic Advisor to discuss their options
Q. Which core can I waive?
A. Review the Core Course Waiver information (updated each spring) for details regarding which core can be waived, the process, and important deadlines.
Q. How do I take the Fast Track Finance course (FIN 603) instead of FIN 503?
A. FIN 603 is intended for first-year MBA students interested in careers in investment banking, financial consulting, corporate finance, and general management consulting with a focus on finance. In order to take FIN 603, you must waive ACC 502. If you are interested in taking FIN 603, please complete this FIN 603 interest survey by August 2, and be sure to follow ACC 502 waiver process at above link.
Q. How can I keep track of which core requirements I have or haven’t completed?
A. After August 12, you can review your Academic Requirements on Wolverine Access to see a live degree audit of your record. You may also review the core curriculum, track your progress using a Degree Requirements Checklist, and schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor periodically to discuss your academic plan and ensure you are on track for graduation. Dual Degree students will need to schedule an "MBA Dual Degree Advising/Issues" appointment.
General registration opens on August 14 at 8 a.m. for incoming MBA1s. Students will be able to drop any waived core courses and add any additional electives or degree requirements at that time. Please refer to How to Add & Drop Classes for more detailed registration instructions.
Q. When can I begin making changes to my Fall 2013 schedule?
A. Incoming MBA1s will be able to adjust their schedules on Wolverine Access starting August 14 at 8 a.m. Keep in mind, core must be taken in the assigned term, and therefore cannot be dropped unless you've been approved for a waiver.
Q. Do I have to register exactly at my appointment time, and when does my registration close?
A. You do not need to register exactly at your appointment time, but some classes will fill quickly, or seats may be opened to non-Ross students after registration has been open for a week or more, so it is to your advantage to register when your appointment time opens. Once your appointment time opens, you can continue to make changes until the drop/add deadlines for Fall 2013, but please plan to make any changes to your schedule on August 14 or in the weeks immediately following in order to register for the course of your choice. The quantity of second year students shifting classes will increase dramatically the closer we get to the start of Fall term, Tuesday, September 3.
Q. How can I learn how to use Wolverine Access to drop/add classes?
A. Wolverine Access is the University website that maintains course registration, student records, address updates, and more. Using your uniqname and password, you can drop or add classes, check your registration or grades, update your address, and request transcripts. If you have questions about how to use or perform certain functions in Wolverine Access you can log in under Student Business, click on Student Center, and search the Help menu for detailed step by step instructions and tips.
It is each student's responsibility to review the course registration rules and policies carefully.
Q. I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?
A. For quick, general questions relating to registration and other processes, Add/Drop forms, Permissions, Standard Letter Requests, etc., please stop by E2420 during Quick Question Walk-in hours (Monday - Friday, 9:30-11 a.m. and 2-3 p.m.), or contact our main office at 734-647-4933 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
