You will register for your Winter 2014 courses on Wolverine Access using the University’s general registration process. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you are completing the appropriate requirements to be eligible for the BBA program (see above).
Q. Do I need to use the backpack feature on Wolverine Access before registration opens?
A. It is recommended that you do, but it is not required. Starting November 13, you can start to add classes to your "Backpack" in Wolverine Access. Backpacking courses allows you to quickly add those classes all at once when your registration appointment time opens. However, be aware that backpacking does not reserve a seat for you in the class - it is simply a way to put the course in your "shopping cart" so that you can "check-out" quickly. If a class in your backpack does not have room available when your registration time opens, you may have to waitlist yourself, and/or select an alternate open class at that time.
Q. When is my registration appointment time?
A. The University assigns registration appointment times for undergraduate students between November 25 and December 12. The times are determined by the credits completed, and then are randomly assigned. You can view your assigned time on Wolverine Access starting November 13.
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, 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 Winter 2014.
It is each student's responsibility to review the course registration rules and policies carefully. Preferred Admit students should also be aware of the course registration rules and policies in their home school.
Q. I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?
A. Ross Preferred Admit students are welcome to consult with their Ross Academic Advisor by scheduling an appointment through the Academics tab in iMpact. Select “BBA Freshman Advising” to schedule. You may also stop by during Academic Advising Walk-in hours, Monday-Friday from 1-3 p.m. in E2420 for quick questions.
