It is your responsibility to check your UB email. Failure to view your eBill will not be accepted as a reason to waive the late payment fee.

Do you know which tools and resources you will use to build your Spring 2019 Class Schedule?

Posted November 7, 2018 in Did You Know?, Grading, HUB Tips, Important Dates

Graphic listing the tools in HUB that are used to build a class schedule

Tools and Resources used to Build a Class Schedule

Academic Advisor

An academic advisor can show you how to use various tools and also help you create a plan to complete prerequisites for a given major, and complete UB Curriculum requirements.

Undergraduate Catalog and HUB Academic Requirements report

You will use both of these resources to select courses to satisfy Acceptance Criteria and Major Requirements along with courses to satisfy the UB Curriculum areas.  Generally speaking you find the HUB Academic Requirements report much easier to understand if you first start with corresponding information as listed in the Undergraduate Catalog.

HUB Tools

  • Use the Academic Requirements report to find which courses need to be taken for Acceptance Criteria for specified major.
  • What-if report.  If you are listed as an undecided student, or you are considering a different major you can run a What-if Report for that major. The What-If Report can depict an Acceptance Criteria section in which Prerequisite Course information can be found, and specific information regarding Acceptance Criteria grade point averages for Acceptance Criteria courses, and overall courses.
  • Use the Schedule Builder to create a list of courses for the upcoming semester and then Generate Schedule scenarios.  As you go through the schedule scenarios you will, hopefully, find one that you will choose to send to your HUB Enrollment Shopping Cart.
  • You should choose your UB Curriculum Pathway courses by the end of your first semester at UB.  Once selected you then send your choices to HUB, and in HUB you can go to the Plan tool to assign your courses to specific semesters.
  • The timeframe in which you are planning for next semester also corresponds to the Mid-Semester Grading Period. You can checking your Mid-term grades via the Grades section.  If you have any mid-semester grades of MU (mid-semester unsatisfactory) or letter grades lower than a “C”, you should speak with your instructor.
  • Based upon Mid-semester grades and or test scores received to date,  student in some instances the student may decide to resign from the class.  However before actually resigning from a class, a student will want to determine ramifications for such action in terms of financial aid, scholarships, or for international students their visa requirements.  The last day to resign from a Fall 2018 class is Friday, November 9, 2018.
  • Students should on a weekly look at the HUB Holds box. A Hold until resolved may prevent you from adding, dropping/resigning classes.
  • The day before your scheduled Enrollment Date, students should review their Enrollment Shopping Cart specifically looking at the Status column to ensure that the courses are still open. If closed the student will need to either select a new section of the course, or a course to satisfy a different area altogether.
  • Registration for all Enrollment Dates currently start at 7:00 a.m.  At this time a student would go to their Shopping Cart, and select depending on display either Enroll or Proceed to Step 2 of 3. The next page will give the student a chance to review before clicking the Finish Enrolling button.  On the Shopping Cart Results page students will look at the Status column to determine if the course has been added to schedule, or if they need to continue the registration process by selecting other courses.

Before you Resign from a Class you should understand Implications

Posted October 30, 2018 in Did You Know?, Important Dates, New Students

Before you resign from a course you should speak with an advisor, refer to body text

The Last Day to Resign a 15-week Standard Session course

The last day to Resign a 15-week Standard Session course will be Friday, November 9, 2018 by 11:59 p.m.

Before you Resign a Course discuss implications with…

Academic Advisor

An Academic Advisor will ask questions to understand your reasons for resigning a course.  In some instances this will lead to a discussion of choosing a different major.

An Academic Advisor can show you the Course Repeat Policy, and see if the course you want to resign is on the Course Enrollment Control Policy.

An Academic Advisor can explain how resigning a course may require that you register for that class in Summer or Winter term, and or how it might add an extra semester to complete your degree.

You can find your assigned Advising Office in the Advisor Box on your HUB Student Center. You can also find contact information on the Undergraduate Advising Directory.

Financial Aid Advisor

If you receive financial aid, hopefully you understand the criteria that you will need to attain in order to maintain your financial aid eligibility. If you do not know this, then you should schedule a meeting with a financial aid advisor. You can arrange a meeting by calling the Financial Aid Office at 716-645-8232.

Resigning a course may have a negative impact upon you financial aid.(Satisfactory Academic Progress [SAP], TAP Award, Excelsior Scholarship).  To determine impact go to 1Capen and request to speak with a financial aid advisor.

International Student Advisor

If you are an international student, you must be registered for at least 12.0 credit hours. If you are thinking about resigning from a class, and the result is that you are enrolled in less than 12.0 credit hours, you must go to the International Student Services Office at 210 Talbert Hall, 716-645-2258.
