MAIS worked closely with the Office of the Registrar to provide contingency registration for students. Students whose registration dates were Nov. 2627 were given the opportunity to register in person at the LS&A Building and at the Media Union on North Campus. MAIS supplied support staff to the registrars office to answer phones and register students directly into the M-Pathways Administration system.
Registration appointments for dates after Nov. 27 were pushed back two business days to ensure that seniors who were unable to register would still receive priority for class selection. MAIS extended Wolverine Access operating hours to 7 a.m.2 a.m. Wolverine Access usually closes at midnight.
Modifications MAIS has made improved the system, and as of noon Nov. 28, 4,219 of 6,248 students who had appointments successfully registered. Linda Green, MAIS communication coordinator, says, The system has been responding better. We are monitoring the system, and were hoping that this will be a non-issue by Monday [today].
Wolverine Access is a Web-based resource for students. In addition to using Wolverine Access for registration, students can access information about their grades, schedules and financial aid from the Web page.
