Registration Information for Winter 2021: Online MBAs

Welcome to Ross! To learn more about the process for course registration for your first term in the Online MBA program, be sure to review all of the information below carefully!

Registration Planning: Get Ready

Registration will open in November. The University catalog and schedule of classes for Winter 2021 is currently available. Be sure to review the schedule and the information below before registration opens.

Q. How many credits can I plan to take each term?

A. Online MBA students can register for a maximum of 12 credits in your first term. It is strongly recommended that you take no more than six credit hours in your first term. Students who are in good academic standing may request to increase their credit limit up to 18 credits in fall or winter terms after their first term.

Q. How do I find out which 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 for Ross classes with sections numbered 801-805 to view those classes available for Online MBA students.

Q. Do I have to take a class in my first term?

A. Yes. New students MUST register for and complete at least one course in the first term they are admitted.

Core Requirements: Get Set

Make sure that you are aware of your requirements and register for them in advance of when you plan to graduate. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you are registering for and completing the appropriate courses. If you have not fulfilled all of your core requirements, you will not graduate.

Q. What are my core requirements?

A. Review the core curriculum for Online MBA students.

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 Student Degree Audit Check appointment with an Academic Advisor. Advisors are happy to talk with Online MBAs in person or via phone or Google Hangouts/Skype - simply schedule an appointment using the online system and then email to let us know how to reach you.

Q. Can I waive core?

A. Yes. Review the Core Course Waiver information (updated each spring) for details. Waiver exams are typically offered in the summer (July/August for the Communication Competency, and late August for TO 533 and FIN 533).

General Registration: Go!

You will be registered in ACC 533 by the Ross Registrar’s Office in Fall A. In future terms, you will register for courses on Wolverine Access using the University's general registration process. Please refer to How to Add & Drop Classes for more detailed registration instructions.

Q. When is my registration appointment time?

A. As an Online MBA student, you will be able to register for both core and elective courses in November. Be sure to register on time in order to avoid late registration fees. 

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. Once your appointment time opens, you can continue to make changes until the drop/add deadlines for that term.

Q. What else can I do using Wolverine Access?

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 search the help menu for detailed step by step instructions and tips.
