Directions when searching for paired core courses:
When searching for the paired core classes you will need to uncheck the following filter on the “class search.” If this box remains checked, then the class search will not return the second class since it has the same meeting pattern; i.e., the courses are scheduled for the same day and time so the system views this as a conflict which is why you have to uncheck that box.
Make Privacy Adjustments – Deadline October 28th
Make privacy information adjustments – Names of graduating students will not be published in the graduation program or in any official press release if the student has a privacy setting preventing such release. Students must ensure that their “privacy settings” in the MyPack Portal indicate their intention for inclusion in or exclusion from these publications. Check with Registration and Records for help completing this step. Deadline to remove the privacy block is October 28, 2016.
