Multiple Meeting Patterns

If your course has multiple meeting patterns, be sure that the instructor is listed on each meeting pattern and that the Print checkbox is checked. Otherwise, the meeting pattern will fail to display in MyU.

Have you been stumped when updating the Student Advisor Page for students with multiple institutions?

You are not alone! Fortunately, we have a new UPK just for this situation. Look in the Peoplesoft Help link:

Student Records > Student Advisor > Update Advisor for student with more than one institution

By the numbers: Grade entry for fall term

During this year's fall term, 88.4% of grades were submitted by the due date on the Twin Cities campus. That is a slight increase over last fall term's 87.6%. For Twin Cities undergraduate regular session courses, 92.4% of grades were entered by the deadline and within the week following the deadline that number rose to 98.8%. The Training Team received 365 contacts during the four day grading period.
