Registrar shares important fall quarter advising information

On Wednesday, Ohio University Registrar Debra Benton sent an e-mail to all faculty and staff updating them on resources and tools for advisors and instructors.

Dear Faculty and Staff,

This is a follow-up message to my May 6, 2011, e-mail message (http://www.ohio.edu/compass/stories/10-11/5/registrar-advising-update-may-2011.cfm).


  • The course offerings for fall quarter are available; on the Schedule of Classes (http://www.ohio.edu/registrar/info/FALL2011-12/) for Fall 2011-12 click Course Offerings.

  • Advisee Lists tool will be available beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 12, from the Registrar's website (http://www.ohio.edu/registrar) by clicking on Faculty & Advising Center:

    • Students were not given RACs to prevent registration for fall, but instead all undergraduate students have a priority registration advising hold that prevents registration.

    • Please use the Advisee Lists to release the priority registration hold for your students.

    • A Frequently Asked Question page is being developed and is available as a link from within the Advisee Lists tool.

    • This is a link to screenshots of the tool (http://www.ohio.edu/oit/rufus/advisee-lists-tool-preview.cfm).

    • If you have questions please call Yvonne Nice, 740-593-4213, or e-mail registrar@ohio.edu.

    • The following items are not currently available in the tool, but will be at a future date:

      • Advisee photo

      • Probation status

      • Dean's List

  • Class Lists will be available later this quarter.

  • Textbook system will be available later this quarter.

We appreciate your patience as we work to bring all of the new systems online.

Best regards,

Debra Benton
University Registrar
