When can I register for Winter/Spring 2018 classes?

Registration days and times will be posted on October 23, 2017. Directions for checking your registration eligibility (also called a time ticket), can be found by:

If you’re a continuing student, go to the UI Integrate Student Self-Service client at apps.uillinois.edu → Classic Registration → Registration Eligibility → You may register during the following times (your time and date will be listed here).

This section will update about two weeks before the beginning of advance registration (October 23, 2017 for spring & winter 2018 registration). This will show the earliest time you can begin using Student Self-Service to make a schedule. You’ll need your Enterprise ID and password to access your Student Self-Service.

If you’re unable to access your Student Self-Service, make sure you’ve established an enterprise password. If you have a password and you still can’t gain access, or if you’ve forgotten your password, contact the UI Integrate help service at apps.uillinois.edu/Help.html

Priority time tickets are assigned to continuing students, meaning those taking University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign coursework in the current term. Be aware that if you are not currently enrolled in U of I classes, you are not considered a continuing student and thus will receive an “open” time ticket. Open tickets allow registration after all priority ticket holders have been allowed to register. Keep this in mind if are not enrolled for a semester and plan in advance as much as possible the classes you will want to take upon your return.

Supply Chain Management applications due Oct 15th

Is Supply Chain Management the right fit for me?

Supply Chain Managers are a special breed – innovative enough to think creatively, yet meticulous enough to forecast the big picture. Are you thorough? Do you enjoy long-term planning? The Supply Chain Management major is a rigorous program open only to select students – you’ll need to fill out an application and interview with faculty to ensure it is the major for you.

Supply Chain Management applications will be accepted from October 2, 2017 through October 15, 2017. Sophomores in the College of Business are able to apply. Juniors may also apply, but graduation in May of 2019 is not guaranteed. A minimum 3.25 GPA is required to apply to the program.

Application available at: https://business.illinois.edu/ba/undergraduate/supply-chain/
