Posted October 6, 2016 in Did You Know?, Exploring Majors & Careers, HUB Tips, New Students

The Spring 2017 Class Schedule is available for viewing in your HUB Student Center, or via the Registrar’s site: http://www.buffalo.edu/class-schedule?semester=spring

Have you started planning which courses to take next semester:

  • To meet Acceptance Criteria for your intended major
  • Serve as an exploratory course to help you select a major
  • Work toward satisfying one or more areas of the UB Curriculum (UB’s new General Education Program)

Learning about the UB Curriculum:

To assist with your plan you should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.  You can find the address and phone number of your Advising Center via the Advisor Box in HUB.  You can also refer to the Undergraduate Advising Directory. 

Academic Advisors can help you successfully create and manage your 4-Year Plan, in part by showing you how to use:

  • Find Your Enrollment Date in HUB (the date and time upon which you can begin registering for next semester classes)
  • Undergraduate Catalog: Majors, Acceptance Criteria, Grading, Academic Integrity, etc.  For any major you will find a Finish in Four Curricular Plan pdf for that major in the Degrees & Policies section.  You may find the Curricular Plan to be very helpful when using  the HUB Planner tool.
  • Use the HUB Planner .  Once you have added courses to your planner, you can then assign the semester in which you want to take those courses.
  • Once you have assigned courses in your Planner to specific semesters, you can select next semesters courses and send then to the HUB Schedule Builder. Video Tutorial about the HUB Schedule Builder ( covering Schedule Builder, Enrollment Shopping Cart, and Registration).  
  • Once you have created some schedules with the Schedule Builder you can forward then to your HUB Enrollment Shopping Cart.
  • As it get nearer to your Enrollment Date, you will want to periodically review the Status column in your Enrollment Shopping Cart. If you see a green circle = course still open. If you see a blue square = course closed, in which case you will need to add another course to your shopping cart.

HUB Academic Advisement Report (AAR)

Posted September 29, 2016 in 101Essentials, Did You Know?, HUB Tips, New Students

Have you started using your HUB – Academic Requirement Report?

hub-my-requirements-report

The Academic Advisement Report (AAR) is an advising tool that students and advisors use to track students’ progress towards completing UB Curriculum (general education) and major requirements.

The report compares the student’s course work against UB requirements and indicates whether the student has completed the requirements. The report also calculates the students Grade Point Average (GPA).

See the My Advisement Report Overview (PDF) tutorial for further information.

Students should review their AAR at least once a semester because the AAR:

  • Lists their UB Curriculum (General Education) and major requirements
  • Lists requirements that are satisfied and outstanding
  • Tracks the acceptance criteria (courses & GPA) for entry into majors
  • Tracks progress towards graduation
  • Is used in the university evaluation for degree conferral

How to use the AAR for Course Planning

Before every class enrollment cycle students should review their AAR to determine what requirements are outstanding for both their major and UB Curriculum (general educational) programs. To stay on track for timely graduation students should register for the courses that satisfy these outstanding requirements.

The AAR lists both the requirement, and the classes that will fulfill, or satisfy the requirement.

HUB My Planner

My Planner allows students to plan courses based on their requirements for an individual term, multiple terms, or for their entire program of study. When used along with the enrollment option of choosing courses by My Requirements, students can view, add, and maintain the courses based on their requirements. My Planner allows students to enroll in these planned courses when they are ready.

For further information see HUB: Guide to Using My Planner (PDF) and Enroll by My Requirements (PDF).

Have You Checked Your Final Exam Schedule?

Posted September 20, 2016 in Did You Know?, New Students

fall-semester-2016-important-dates-check-your-final-exam-schedule

Final Exam Schedule

Your final exam schedule is available in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

Student Responsibility for Exam Conflicts

Beginning in the fall 2014 term final exam information will be available one week prior to the start of fall classes.

A final exam conflict exists when a student has:

  • Three or more exams scheduled on the same day
  • Two exams occurring at the same time
  • When a student’s exam occurs contemporaneously with his or her commencement ceremony for Spring or Summer conferral

Students who find themselves with an unavoidable exam conflict should contact the instructors of the courses and explain the conflict in exams. Usually one instructor will be able to schedule an alternate time for the student to take their exam. If students are unable to arrange the re-scheduling of examinations with the faculty, undergraduate students should contact the appropriate dean’s office and graduate students should contact their academic department.

Final Exam Scheduled for More Than One Classroom

If your final exam is assigned to more than one classroom, contact your instructor during the last week of classes to determine where to report for the exam.
