Make sure you know when your final exams are! View the Ross final exam schedules BEFORE making any travel plans.

Questions? Please reach out to us at rossregistrarsoffice@umich.edu.

Preparing for Academic Success

  1. Check your schedule periodically, especially in the week before a drop/add deadline! Why this is important: Students can't change the grading basis of a course after the drop/add deadline. Also, if you have to late drop a course, the class will still count towards your term total units as well as remain on your record.
     
  2. Be sure that you're taking classes which will fulfill your degree requirements. Review the Core Curriculum page, schedule an appointment with your academic advisor, and/or review the "My Academic Requirements" link in Wolverine Access.
     
  3. Take a glance at your program's Bulletin. This handy resource contains answers to nearly all of the questions you may have about academic policies!
     
  4. If you would like to improve your performance in a class, reach out to the instructor for tutor references.
     
  5. Consider using Ross Communication Consulting for help with assignments.
