It’s early registration time! Four questions to consider to be sure you are ready

Early registration runs from April 12 – 23.   Are you ready? 

Here are four important questions to consider to be sure you are ready to register:

  1. Do you need to meet with an advisor prior to registration for authorization?  You can schedule a zoom or phone appointment through MyUI.
  2. Do you meet all the prerequisites for your fall courses?  You can check that in MyUI through these easy steps:
    • Login to MyUI
    • Search for a course you plan to take in the fall
    • Click into any section of that course.  There will be a message in the “Prerequisites” field that tells you whether or not you meet the prereqs.
  3. Do you have all course permissions that you need for your fall schedule?
    • If you are a Tippie student who cannot yet declare your major but plan to start major courses in the fall, your advisor will need to give you permission for those.
  4. Do you have a few preferred schedules saved in Schedule Builder?
    • Schedule Builder is the best way to be sure you do meet all the requirements for your courses.  If you don’t have the prerequisites or don’t have permission for major courses, you’ll be blocked when building schedules.
    • Test out Schedule Builder well before your registration date to be sure you won’t be blocked from any courses at your registration time!

Best of luck with your planning, and please reach out to your advisor with questions!

YAB Summer Mentor Program- applications due April 9

The Young Alumni Board (YAB) Summer Mentor Program is for Tippie students who are interested in being connected with a Tippie alum during a six-week virtual mentoring program in Summer 2021. The mentor serves as a professional resource and helps you to build your professional network in your industry and/or city.  Mentoring resources and guidelines will be provided to both the mentor and mentee. Matches to students are primarily based on industry interest and where applicable, in the same city. Even if you don’t have an internship this summer, you are welcome to apply.

Below is a bit more information about the program:

Who are the mentors? Tippie alums working in the mentee’s target industry and, where applicable, in the same city of their internship / volunteer opportunity.

How does it help? Provides access to the Hawkeye community outside Iowa City as well as insight into careers and professional opportunities.

How does it work? The alum mentor will contact the mentee at the beginning of summer and will meet with them at least three times virtually throughout the six-week program

How big of a time commitment is it? We will provide guidelines and resources in the program. Mentors and mentees will be asked to participate in a kick-off call, provide feedback via a mid-summer survey, and attend the program wrap-up call at the beginning of August. We will request that each alum connects with their mentee at least three times during the mentoring program.

How do I sign up? Apply here. The application period is open until April 9. You will receive your mentoring match via email by April 30.
