To learn more about the process for course registration for Summer and Fall 2016, be sure to review all of the information below carefully!

Registration Planning: Get Ready

General registration will open Wednesday, June 1, at 10 am (EDT). Be sure to review the schedule of classes and the information below before registration opens.

Q. What core will I be taking in Summer and Fall 2016?
A.  In Summer 2016, MM students take ACC 557, BCOM 557, FIN 557, and MKT 557 (see Core Requirements). Fall 2016 core classes are STRATEGY 557 and TO 557 in the "A" half-term and BE 557 and MO 557 in the "B" half-term. Core must be taken in the assigned term to complete the program.

Q. How many classes should I plan to take in addition to my core?
A.
 To receive the MM degree, students must complete 30.75 credits: 24.75 credits of core courses and 6.0 credits of approved electives. You will have completed 17.25 credits of core classes between the Summer and Fall terms (8.25 credits in Summer and 9 credits in Fall). If you successfully complete a 3.0 credit elective course during the Fall term, you will need to elect one 3.0 credit elective during the Winter term.

Q. What electives or other classes can I take?
A.
 You may choose a course from the approved electives list. Please keep in mind that electives cannot conflict with your core course schedule and that Ross students are not permitted to take Ross classes on a Pass/Fail basis (unless the course is mandatory Pass/Fail). 

Approved Fall 2016 Electives:

FIN 412: International Finance Management I (1.5 cr)
FIN 414: International Finance Management II (1.5 cr)
FIN 415: Corporate Investment Decisions (3.0 cr)
MKT 408: Pricing (3.0 cr)
MKT 411: Advertising Management (3.0 cr)
MKT 418: Marketing Research and Analytics (3.0 cr)
TO 411: Decision Support with Excel (3.0 cr)

Q. How do I find out what courses are being offered and when?
A. You can view the full University schedule on Wolverine Access, or via the Office of the Registrar - this site 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.

Q. Textbooks: What classroom resources are needed?
A. Textbook and other course requirements are typically available on each course's Canvas page or on Wolverine Access. 

Core Requirements: Get Set

Q. What are my core requirements?
A.  
Be sure to review the core curriculum for MM students to make sure you understand the degree requirements for the MM program.

Q. How can I keep track of which core requirements I have or haven’t completed?
A.
 Review your Academic Requirements on Wolverine Access to see a live degree audit of your record, or schedule a Graduate Degree Audit Check appointment with an Academic Advisor. (Summer appointments are available upon request by emailing rossgradacadadvising@umich.edu.)

General Registration: Go!

Students will use the University's general registration process on Wolverine Access to register for core and elective classes. Please refer to How to Add & Drop Classes for more detailed registration instructions.

Q. When is my registration appointment time?
A.
 MM students have been assigned a Summer and Fall 2016 registration appointment time of Wednesday, June 1, at 10 am (EDT).

Q. Do I need to use the backpack feature in Wolverine Access before registration opens?
A.
 It is recommended that you do, but it is not required. 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. 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 the appropriate term. Please note that any available elective seats reserved for MMs will be released on Monday, August 15.

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. 

Important Rules and Policies: What You Need to Know 

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 W3700 during office hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.), or contact our main office at 734-647-4933 or rossacadservices@umich.edu.
