Printed course schedule bulletins to be eliminated
Based on recommendations from the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate, the Chancellor's Executive Staff has approved the elimination of paper class schedule bulletins. Therefore, beginning with fall 2005 registration, class schedule information will be available exclusively online.
The Registrar's Office has been working toward this end for the last several years, improving the appearance and functionality of online class schedule information; adding multiple ways to search for desired classes; adding links to catalogue descriptions; creating an index of links to non-class information that appeared in the printed schedule; and creating a printable pdf version of the course schedule.
The Registrar's Office has lobbied for a complete conversion to the online schedule not only in order to save printing costs, but also because the online schedule is always up to date with course changes. It is refreshed on a daily basis, whereas the printed schedule invariably was out of date before it was even distributed.
The current term's class schedule can be accessed from the UW-Eau Claire homepage by going to the "Quick Links" pulldown and choosing "Class Schedule."
If you have questions or suggestions for making the online course bulletin more user-friendly, contact UW-Eau Claire Registrar Sue Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 836-3887.

Registration for Summer Session begins Feb. 9
Registration for UW-Eau Claire's Summer Session 2005 will begin Feb. 9. Community members are invited to explore the wealth of educational opportunities offered at UW-Eau Claire when open registration begins Feb. 24.
"We always try to offer something for everyone during summer session, and this year is no exception," said Jan Morse, administrative officer for Academic Affairs. "There are more than 200 undergraduate and graduate courses to choose from this summer, and we continue to increase the number of Web-based courses being offered for people who can't make it to campus. This summer there are 27 Web-based courses being offered - more than ever before."
The online courses are designed to be appealing both to working adults who are trying to fit classes into already busy schedules and to traditional-age students who want to earn credits while traveling or working at home during the summer. Courses are offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the College of Education and Human Sciences. More information about these courses is available online. Full story.
