Spring 2018 enrollment advising update for faculty

Academic advising to prepare students for enrolling in spring 2018 classes begins officially after Fall Break and will continue through Friday, 10 November.

We have posted a list of frequently asked questions on our “Resources” website (https://kuub.ku.edu/facultystaff).  Many routine advising questions should be addressed at this site.  Please send us questions that you don’t find on this list, since we are always updating. 

Current (and past) degree requirements can be found at http://www.kuub.ku.edu/degrees/.  We’ve included four year guides for all of our biology majors.  Note that the Human Biology Program has its own web page (http://www.humanbio.ku.edu/).  The Schedule of Classes can be found at http://classes.ku.edu.

Please do not hesitate to contact Greg (gburg@ku.edu) or me if you have questions.

Thanks, and happy advising.

—Jen and Greg

> Permission numbers.  Please contact Kandi Proudfoot (kmwhite@ku.edu) for course permission numbers, except for BIOL 152, BIOL 350, and BIOL 426.  Greg or I will be able to forward permission numbers for BIOL 152 and BIOL 350, and Greg will handle permission numbers for BIOL 426. 

> BIOL 408 Physiology of Organisms is now split into 2 course options.  Students with BIOL 408 as a major requirement will choose one of two courses: BIOL 501 Physiological Adaptations of Plants to Extreme Environments (spring only) or BIOL 644 Comparative Animal Physiology (fall only; will be renumbered to BIOL 544 beginning Fall 2018).  BIOL 501 is being offered in the spring as BIOL 419 Physiological Adaptations of Plants to Extreme Environments.

> BIOL 646 Mammalian Physiology is now BIOL 546 Mammalian Physiology, 3 credit hours.  Mammalian Physiology has been decreased both in course number level and in credit hours to reflect changes in course content and structure. 

> ANTH 304 Fundamentals of Physical Anthropology.  Graduating Human Biology majors who still need to complete ANTH 304 may enroll in the online ANTH 304 course this spring but likely will need to submit an online enrollment request at www.collegeonline.ku.edu/onlinecourserequest.  If they experience difficulties enrolling, please direct them to me (weghorst@ku.edu) or Greg (gburg@ku.edu)

> Enrollment dates.  Here are the start dates for students enrolling for spring 2018:

Honors students and athletes: 19 October, Thurs

Seniors: 24 October, Tues

Juniors: 27 October, Fri

> Enrollment holds.  There are several holds that students may see on their accounts.  A brief description of each can be found at http://collegeadvising.ku.edu/academics/choosing-classes.  Please have the student confirm the type of hold they have before contacting Greg or me.

> Declaring or changing a major.  Students may go to 109 Strong Hall to declare or change their major.
