New Student Educational Planner (SEP) in DW

Posted by: Mary Bergstrom | May 15, 2020 Comments Off on New Student Educational Planner (SEP) in DW |

Degree Works has upgraded their student planning feature in an effort to enhance the student advising experience. The Registrar’s Office is excited to announce that this new Student Educational Planner (SEP), located on the Plans tab in Degree Works, is now available. The new Plans tab will replace the existing Planner tab. Student’s plans from the previous Planner tab will automatically be converted and be available on the New Plans tab.

Just like the Planner Tab, Degree Works Plans are used to help advisors and students work together to plan each term of coursework as to ensure student success. By developing a plan, students will have a clear path of coursework needed in sequential order. Using their plan, a student can generate an audit to evaluate their intended degree progress.

Here are some advancements:
· Modern user interface
· Tracking Feature that shows when students are on or off track
· Ability to flag requirements as critical
· Enhanced note capabilities
· Plans are not lost when a student changes their program of study

The Registrar’s Office would like to thank Information Technology for their partnership and hard work in supporting this project and its launch! I would also like to thank Julie Dahl, Franklin Czwazka, and Tom Buchheit from the RO for their leadership and contributions to this project.

Documentation and user guides are available in the Office of the Registrar channels on the Help and Training Tab within MyCharleston. Students should direct questions about the content of their plans to their advisor. Questions about plan functionality can be sent to Degreeworks@cofc.edu.

Best,
Mary B.

Posted by: Mary Bergstrom | April 17, 2020 Comments Off on Significant Disruption (PS/NS) Grade Mode: Important Information for Students !MUST READ! |

Dear Student,

It is important to read this email in its entirety as it contains important details regarding your grades for this semester.  In addition to the standard letter grade, the College of Charleston is providing students with the option of selecting a PS/NS grade for eligible courses completed in Express II or full-semester Spring 2020.  Information on this option can be found by visiting the Office of the Registrar website: https://registrar.cofc.edu/grades/covid-19-grading-policy.php

Timeline for Making Your Decision Between Standard Letter Grades and the new PS/NS Grade Type

  • You will have two days to view your letter grades and make decisions regarding the new Significant Disruption PS/NS grade option.
  • The opportunity to select the new PS/NS option will open for you in Banner Self-Service starting at 12:01 am (EST) May 5, 2020.
  • Your decision deadline is 11:59 pm (EST) on May 6, 2020.
  • You may change your selections during the two-day period (May 5th and 6th, 2020).  All decisions are final as of 11:59 pm (EST) on May 6, 2020.

Viewing Your Express II and Full Semester Letter Grades

  • On May 5th, you will be able to access your Express II and full-semester grades on the Significant Disruption (PS/NS) Grade Mode page in Banner Self-Service.  Your grades will not be located in the normal Student Grades channel on the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston until they are finalized on May 7, 2020.
  • We have dedicated a channel to the Significant Disruption (PS/NS) Grade Mode on the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston.  Detailed instructions for accessing your grades can be found on the Office of the Registrar webpage: https://registrar.cofc.edu/pdf/alternate-grade-ps-ns-guide.pdf.

Choosing the PS/NS Grade Mode Option for Your Eligible Courses

  • In making the decision to retain standard letter grades or choose the new PS/NS grade mode, it is critical for you to talk with faculty, advisors, financial aid, and family.  The Center for Academic Performance and Persistence is a valuable resource for students making these decisions. Questions regarding how the PS/NS grade type will impact scholarship eligibility can be emailed to meritscholarships@cofc.edu.   If you have any questions regarding the PS/NS process, please contact the Office of the Registrar registrar@cofc.edu.
  • If you do not want to select the PS/NS grade type for any of your eligible courses, you do not need to take any action.
  • If you would like to select the PS/NS grade for any of your eligible courses, detailed instructions can be found on the Office of the Registrar webpage: https://registrar.cofc.edu/pdf/alternate-grade-ps-ns-guide.pdf.

Wishing you all good health!

Top Three Questions About Degree Works This Week

Posted by: Mary Bergstrom | August 13, 2018 Comments Off on Top Three Questions About Degree Works This Week |

Q:  Will my preferred first name be listed at the top of my degree audit?

A:  Yes, the audit header will contain your preferred first name.

Q:  When I run a What-If audit, my general education course requirements change.  What is up with that?

A:  Make sure you read the instructions located at the top of the What-If audit page.  “Important Note Regarding Undergraduate General Education Requirements and What-If Audits: A What-If audit defaults to the requirements for the current catalog year for ALL audit requirements (gen eds, major, minor, degree, etc.). The general education requirements are based on your year of admission or re-admission to the College. Since the What-If audit defaults to the current catalog year, you may need to ignore the general education section of the What-If Audit because you cannot change the catalog year for this requirement. Always consult with your Academic or Faculty Advisor when reviewing your audit.”

Q: Is there a place in Degree Works where I can see what my semester GPA was for each term?

A: Yes.  Use the Term by Term History link near the top of your audit.  This will give you a pop-up window with a term-by-term history of your credits and GPA.
