Dear Faculty and faculty Delegates,
I am excited to inform you that registration for Fall 2023 is open, and students are actively enrolling in their preferred courses. As we continue to navigate the ever-changing educational landscape, I am grateful for your dedication to our students and their success. With that in mind, I wanted to take a moment to remind you about a few important details related to the upcoming Fall semester.
First and foremost, it is important to ensure that your course information is up-to-date and accurate. This includes syllabi, course descriptions, and required materials. As students search and register for classes, they will be looking for the most current and accurate information. To help you with this process, Fall 2023 classes are available in GU360 for faculty and their delegates to upload syllabi. Instructions for uploading your syllabus can be found below.
I would also like to remind you that our university has transitioned to using four-digit course numbers, rather than the traditional three-digit format. With this change, it is important to update your syllabi and course materials to reflect the new course numbers as it may affect how students search and register for classes. To identify new course number equivalents for previous courses, click here.
In addition to ensuring your course information is up-to-date, I also want to remind you to submit your Fall 2023 book orders on the BNC Adoption and Insights Portal. Your login is your net ID and university password. Please note that the transition to four-digit course numbers has interfered with the feature that allows you to reuse an old book list. In most cases you should still be able to find your old book lists by choosing “I’d like to be guided through the adoption process” and then “view detailed adoption history.” If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact the textbook manager, Naomi Trexler.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our students’ education. Let’s work together to make Fall 2023 a successful and rewarding semester for everyone.
Please review the instructions for uploading your syllabus. For your convenience, I have also copied them below.
