Spring 2014 Registration Tips
Tell Us How We Are Doing
2014 PMI Research & Education Conference

Dear MSPM Students,

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

Spring 2014 Registration Tips

Registration for the spring semester began on Monday, 4 Nov. Below are tips on registration:

– If you are not able to locate a project management elective in GWeb, be sure to look under the “Special Topics” heading within the DNSC course listings.

– If you have an academic hold or financial hold on your account, you will not be able to register. For academic holds, schedule an advisement session with me via www.meetme.so/gwmspm to discuss. For financial holds, contact the Student Accounts Office to discuss.

– If you are registering for DNSC 6269 PM Applications (capstone), you cannot do so via GWeb. You must submit a Registration Transaction Form to me for approval and processing. The form must be complete with all details provided, including the correct CRN and section.

– Review your plans in DegreeMAP to ensure that they are up-to-date. Questions regarding changes to your plan may be addressed in an advisement session.

– The summer 2014 schedule will be made available towards the end of March.
