Registration for spring 2014 classes will begin this week. Parents and family members are urged to remind their students to check their account for holds that would prevent them from being able to register.
This email went out about two weeks ago to students who had holds on their accounts. Here are a couple of important points from that email:
“The outstanding balance needs to be resolved in order for the registration hold to be removed. All other holds must be resolved with the office that has placed the hold on your account. You can view all holds on your account via WIN.
For your convenience, you can view and pay your outstanding balance via DEAC Payments can either be made in person at the Cashier’s window (REY 107), through DEAC or by mail. Student Financial Services is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday-Friday. Credit & debit cards are not accepted.”
Please urge your students to check for holds, or if you have been granted third-party access to DEAC, you can check it yourself. Because registration takes place after business hours (at the request of Student Government, who did not want registration to interfere with classes), if a student does not discover a hold until he/she tries to register, he/she will be prohibited from registering until the hold can be removed the next morning when administrative offices open.
Students (and parents/families) would be wise to check their student’s account several days before and the day of registration so that they can be certain their accounts are in order and they will be able to register on time.

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem. Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select information and presentations from Orientation 2016 are available online.
