Registrar’s Office has a smooth September

Registration went a little smoother this fall thanks to a few system changes.

Many factors contributed to the success, including staff having overcome so many challenges and becoming more comfortable with the University’s new Banner computer system. Other changes made to the registration system included automatic checks for course pre-requisites.

In addition to staff familiarizing themselves with Banner, students are also more familiar with the on-line registration system, Carleton Central.

“Once you use it a few times, Carleton Central is easy to navigate,” says Lindsay Kesselman, a fourth-year Mass Communication student.

Registration for students in programs with fewer electives, such as Engineering, were further assisted by a pilot project that allowed the registration system to automatically select all the students’ required courses. The project was tested for first-year Engineering students and will be expanded in future registration periods.

To date, more than 23,000 undergraduate and graduate students have registered for the current 2004-2005 academic year.
