Schedule of classes updated

The schedule of classes changes to  UAccess, the replacement system for Student Link, starting this week.

The student center, which is already the hub for some student financial aid and biographical information, will look to incorportate the schedule of classes before students start registration at the end of March.

“”We’ve been working on it for so long that to introduce it to students is really exciting,”” said Suellyn Hull, co-director of the Mosaic project, which features the UAccess system.

Students can access the new schedule of classes through a directed link under Student Link or through the UA homepage.

A tutorial under the WebReg section of Student Link shows the navigation basics in a five-minute video.

On Tuesday, there will be a live show from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Gallagher Theater of the Student Union Memorial Center to help students acclimate themselves to the new system, said Kay Stevens Beasock, the organizational communications manager for the Mosaic project.

“”That will be the first glimpse of the new system,”” Beasock said.

The session will also be the simplist way for users to become familiar with UAccess.

“”Even if they do not read anything, the videos will help students learn the new system,”” said Tom Bourgeois, co-director of the Mosaic project.

The new schedule of classes offers three different sets of criteria to search for classes and is more userfriendly, according to the Mosaic team. Three drop-downs for course career, class level, course subject or exact course number will help students find the the class that works for their schedule and academic requirements.

After a selection is made, students can see the first three selections for each category that meets the specifications, and a simple button-click then reveals all classes filling the entered requirements.

The next launch date is March 22, which will allow students to place these choices into a shopping cart called a ‘Cat Cart.’ During their scheduled registration date and time, students can register.
