## Academic Dishonesty

- Official policy on plagiarism is here
- Letters to students that allege academic dishonesty should be sent directly to the student and copied to the list of people outlined below
(Karen Ricciardi, Associate Vice Provost 5/2/2016)

- Associate Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies, Karen Ricciardi
- Office of the Dean of Students, Shelby Harris
- Department Chair
- College Dean
- Contact Karen Ricciardi for help with these issues
- All discipline and distressed student issues should be sent to Shelby Harris, Interim Associate Dean of Students
- It's up to the faculty member as to how severe of a sanction. It could range from a conversation all the way to an F in the course, with a zero on the assignment in between. (Marietta 10/17/16)
- The official policy leaves the determination of penalty up to the faculty member (Peter 10/17/16)
- Further sanctions can be imposed by the director of undergraduate education (Peter 10/17/16)
- Giving an F on the assignment for the first offense and an F in the course for the second offense is a policy a lot of instructors follow (Peter 10/17/16)
- Some instructors give an F for the first offense (Peter 10/17/16)
- Forced withdrawal is also an option (Peter 10/17/16)
- All infractions are supposed to be reported to various offices, as given in the code of student conduct (Peter 10/17/16)
- Both giving and receiving assistance are violations if such cooperation is not allowed (Peter 10/17/16)
## Academic Support

## Advising

- A student can change their advisor only with the permission of the instructor whom they wish to have as their advisor (Peter 11/15/2016)
## ALEKS

- When a student takes the ALEKS exam they get a code
- The code allows them take the exam 3 times
- The code is only good for one year
- Sometimes there is a substantial delay between a student's taking the ALEKS test, and the updating of the database behind WISER
- The student should copy the ALEKS results into an email to Registrar@umb.edu along with the exact course and exact section number (Registrar 11/21/2016)
- After that, they must apply for a new code
- To get another code a student must contact the Testing Center Office, uac.testing@umb.edu
- The score on an ALEKS exam is only good for one year
- To get a new permission code to retake that ALEKS, a student needs to contact the Testing Center

## Awards

- There are two types of awards issued at graduation

- Graduating with Distinction
- Names Awards
- The only named award for IT students is the Outstanding IT Student Award
- Outstanding IT Student Award should be given to the best IT student as determined by

- GPA
- Helpfulness
- I should ask faculty for suggestions as to candidates for Outstanding IT Student Award
- A maximum of 3 distinction awards for each 25 graduates
- The usual criterion for a distinction award is a GPA of at least 3.5, but I have full distinction
- The names are published in two different booklets

- Commencement booklet
- Convocation booklet
- The booklets have different deadlines with the Commencement booklet coming first
- The student who gets the Outstanding IT Student Award, would also graduate with distinction
- I can award more distinctions than the Registrar's quota, but the extra distinction awardee's names will not appear in the commencement booklet
- I must notify IT students receiving awards
- Each student who graduates with distinction gets a prize
- The prize consists of a book costing $100 - $150
- There can be more than one book as long as the total is under the limit
- I should ask each student which book they want
- The books have to be available on Amazon
- I need to notify John Lewis about the books
## Blackboard

## Bunker Hill Courses While At UMB

- If a student wants to take a Bunker Hill course while at UMB they must fill out the Instruction for Undergraduate Transfer Credit Permission Form and take it to Sabrina Cuffie in the Registrar's offic
- To find ou the equivalent of a Bunker Hill course at UMB use Transferology
- Sabrina Cuffie, Sabrina.Cuffie@umb.edu, can help me with this
- Bunker Hill's MAT281 transfers to UMB as MATH 140.
- Students need permission to do take this course while attending UMB and must fill out the Instruction for Undergraduate Transfer Credit Permission Form which Denis Wortman must approve. (Danielle 7/17/2017)
## Business Minor for IT Students

- For information, go here
## Computer Forensics Track

- Five of the following courses are required for the major

- SOCIOL 104L Intro to Criminal Justice
- IT 220 Computer Forensics I
- IT 221 Computer Forensics II
- IT420 Network and Mobile Forensics
- IT 421 Malware Analysis
- SOCIOL 364 Cyber Crime
## Course Information

- Go to WISER and select "Browse Course Catalog
## CPT

- CPT is a 1 credit practicum course
- Usually, their advisor is the instructor
- There is no practicum in IT, but IT students can use our undergraduate practicum course CS 495
- The purpose of the course is just to allow students to get OPT
- The instructor usually asks the student for monthly updates and a final report, as well as a report from the internship supervisor at the end of the internship (Peter Fejer 5/23/2017)
- Instructors give a grade based on how the internship went (Peter Fejer 5/25/2017)
- CPT is for international students who have internships
- These are almost always with external companies, although sometimes students use these for paid work on campus
- International students can work on campus without CPT, but they are limited to 20 hours per week during the semester
- With CPT International students can work 40 hours per week
- Students must get the CPT form and give it to their advisor
- Students must register before the Add/Drop deadline
- Students with a CPT can work to the end of the semester
- For the summer term, they can work to the end of August
## CS 110

- CS 110 was first taught in Python in Fall 2015
## CS Certificate

- Students should talk to Ming Ouyang, ming@cs.umb.edu
## Degree Audit Changes

- To change the Degree Audit multiple choices are given, fill out the Degree Audit Update Form
- These should be sent to the Provost for further processing
## Degrees

- The BA requires 11 General Education Distribution courses
- The BS requires only 9
- There is no BA in IT, only BS
- A course taken to satisfy the World Languages distribution area must be a second year of a language or above.
## Diversity Requirement

- There is a diversity requirement to graduate and the course must be taken here
- Diversity courses are offered in two areas

- US Diversity
- International Diversity
- A student must take one of each
- If you transfer in with more than 60 credits, you only need to take 1 diversity course
## Double Majors

- To become a double major in IT simply fill out the major declaration form.
- This works for students from any college. (Marietta Schwartz 7/25/2017)
## Exceptions

- I can"t submit exception until student registers for course
- All Equivalency/Exception form should go to Kristen Papuga
- Anything in the Transfer section of the Degree Audit that has an 8xxx number is a course for which there is no direct equivalent at UMB
- It is my call to use any 8xxx course to fullfil any of the requirements for the major
- If I decide to accept an 8xxx course I must write an exception
- I can write an Exception for a track course if I think the course is an acceptable alternative and the student has a good reason for not taking the course (Marietta, 4/19/2016)
## Equivalence

- If I say a course from another institution is equivalent to an IT course, any student transfering the course will automatically have it counted as the equivalent UMB course
- I should only write an equivalency if the course is a true equivalent
## Free Software for Students

- Students can get free and discount software from OnTheHub
- What they can get depends upon the school they attend and the department
- We pay a subscription fee of $700 for three 3 for VMWare, last renewed in 2016
- Ron downloads VMWare for his classes onto /nobackup/blade71/cheungr to make things easier for students and operators.
- For software that few use, Ron asks them to send an email to the operator requesting onthehub accounts
- Ron believes the licenses are good for one year (Ron Cheung 4/7/2017)
## General Education Distribution Requirement

- A BA degree requires 11 General Education Distribution credits
- A BS only requires 9
- Only Undergraduate Studies can approve a non-listed course for a General Education Distribution credit
- All I can do is lobby Michael Quashigah, the Director of Undergraduate Studies
- An IT student cannot use CS 105 as a Math distribution credit because it is less difficult than the minimum quantitative reasoning requirement for the IT degree, Math 135
- IT 115 DOES count as a Math distribution credit for the IT degree, but IT 114 does not
- Marietta says we need to get some IT courses accepted into the MT distribution area
- There are very few Math courses that appear in the MT list
- In order for a course to be listed it must be approved by General Education Distribution committee
- For a BS degree no Math course can count as a GED course unless it is at the level of Math 141 or higher (Karen Riccardi 1/26/18)
- Since all Statistics courses, even those with course numbers higher than 200, are not at the Mathematics level higher than Calculus, these courses do not satisfy the Math Distribution for a BS student (Karen Riccardi 1/26/18)
- Phil 120 cannot be used for the Math distribution for IT majors since any math course taken for distribution must be at the level of Math 141 or higher
## GED Technology Courses

- Karen Ricardi will help with getting IT courses approved for this status
- The following document lists the requirements DISTRIBUTION AREA DESCRIPTIONS AND CRITERIA FOR COURSE CONTENT IN DISTRIBUTION COURSES
- The following link details the approval process
- The proposal must be sent to Neal Bruss, the chair of the General Education committee
## Grades

- Instructors have a lot of independence in assigning grades (Peter 5/27/2016)
- The only basis for a student to appeal a grade would be for the student to show that the grading scheme (i.e., how much each part of the course counts) announced by the professor was not followed (Peter 5/27/2016)
- No one wants to get involved in second guessing instructors’ grades (Peter 5/27/2016)
## Graduation

- My graduation work

- I get an Excel spreadsheet
- I must examine ALL records for major, minor, or concentration requirements
- I need to open the Degree Audit and look at the following sections

- IT Core
- Track courses
- Professional Electives
- I need to make sure all requirements fulfilled ...
- and that their IT GPA is 2.0
- I should write exceptions as appropriate
- Mark the spread with one of the following numbers

- 1 = all requirements complete
- 2 = requirements will be complete with in-progress courses
- 3 = requirements will not be completed by the end of this semester
- Contact students who will not complete their degree requirements to tell them to file for a new graduation date
- Add any text notes I think may be helpful to the Graduation Team
- Return paperwork and spreadsheet to Allison
- If the student has completed all IT requirements, but is missing some other requirement to graduate, I should enter a 1 on the spreadsheet
- Emails about graduation issues go to UGRAD@umb.edu
- There is only one commencement ceremony and it is in May
- Student can graduate after the Fall semester if by 12/31 they have

- Declared the correct track
- Satisfied the Writing Proficiency Requirement
- Finished all incompletes
- Students who complete their coursework in summer school can walk in the Commencement, but would have an August graduation date
## Incomplete

- The new Incomplete form requires three signatures

- Instructor
- Student
- Department Chair
- It is no longer possible to give the grade of Inc in WISER
- The grade Incomplete can only be given to a student who is passing the course but cannot complete due to unusual circumstances
- An Inc that is to be made up by auditing the course in a future semester and doing the entire semester’s work in that future semester is rarely justifiable and should be a very rare occurrence
- INC grades should only be awarded to students when there was an identifiable unforeseen extenuating circumstance that interfered with timely completion of the course
- Submission of an incomplete grade requires that a student agrees to the terms of the incomplete contract and that the contract is on file with the department
- INC grades should only be considered when the student is up-to-date with all required work and has passing grades in the course at the time he or she requested the incomplete
- If a student fails to complete the course and has not requested an incomplete grade, submission of an incomplete grade is not appropriate
- The appropriate grade to submit is one that reflects the work that the student has submitted in accordance with the grading policy set by the instructor
## Information Architecture

- A student on the Information Architecture track can take IT 456 in lieu of IT 461L if they need IT 461 to graduate and the course is full. (Peng Xu 11/7/2016)
## Internships for Credit

- We have a practicum courses in CS, CS 495, which allows students to get credit for an internship
- There is no similar course in IT, but an IT major could sign up for the CS course
- The course is 1 credit and the instructor is supposed to ask for some regular reporting from the student about the internship
- The instructor also needs to get a report from the internship supervisor
- There is a similar graduate course, but it is only one credit and it is always graded P/F
- CS 495 can be graded or P/F at the student's option
- If the student is going to get a grade, it is reasonable that the instructor asks for some actual effort from the student for the course
- The real purpose of the practicum courses is to make it possible for international students to use CPT (Curricular Practical Training) for their internship rather than OPT (Optional Practical Training) because they want to save their OPT for after graduation
- The courses are not limited to international students however
- We expect that the instructor for a student's practicum course is that student's advisor
- This distributes the load among all faculty
- The student does not have to have their advisor as the practicum instructor
- All of the above from Peter Fejer 8/16/16
- There is no pay for the instructor for this practicum course (Peter Fejer 12/11/2016)
- Students are expected to ask their advisors to set up a section of CS 495 for them (Peter Fejer 12/11/2016)
## Maximum Course Load

- The maximum number of credits for a semester is 17
- 12 credits is considered full time
- To take more credits you must appeal for a credit overload to Undergraduate Studies
- If the student has a GPA of at least 3.0 there is a good chance it will be approved
## Obtaining Student Data

- To get data from the Registrar's office go to https://www.umb.edu/registrar/forms/registrar_data_request and fill out the form
## Pass/Fail

- A student can take one course per semester Pass/Fail
- A maximum of 8 courses can be taken Pass/Fail
- We do not recommend taking a course Pass/Fail since it does not look good on your transcript
- You CANNOT take any course required for the IT major Pass/Fail
- You CAN take Math 135 Pass/Fail
- You CANNOT take a Professional Elective Pass/Fail
- ANY course that is not a requirement for the IT major can be taken Pass/Fail
- Once a grade of Pass/Fail has been recorded it cannot be changed
- I can write a Waiver to accept a course taken Pass/Fail that should not be taken Pass/Fail
- The deadline for taking a course Pass/Fail is usually 2/3 of the way into the semester
- The deadline is always listed in the Academic Calendar
- If an IT student has taken a required course Pass/Fail, I have three choices
(Kristen Papagua (6/5/2017))

- Accept the form by filling out a waiver
- Require the student to go through the appeal process in Undergraduate Studies
- Require the student to take the course again
- To accept an IT course that the student has taken Pass/Fail, I need to fill out the Waiver portion of the Equivalence, Exception, Waiver form (Kristen Papagua 1/8/2018)
## Prerequisites

- The registration system assumes the completion of in-progress courses (Karen Delaney 2017-01-27)
- There is a process that is run after grades are posted to check if students have failed a required prerequisites
- The report will give you the names of students that have failed the required prerequisite and then you, or someone in your department, can drop them from the new course(s) (Karen Delaney 2017-01-27)
## Professional Electives

- A course required for the IT major or a track cannot be used as a Professional Elective
- Professional Electives are for the IT degree only
## Quantitative Reasoning Requirement

- For College of Science and Mathematics students the Quantitative Reasoning requirement is Math 135
- For College of Management students the Quantitative Reasoning requirement is Math 134
- You CAN take Math 135 Pass/Fail
- A score of 66 will place a student into Math 135
- The Math Department will not accept a high school math course in place of Math 135 or Math 140
- The Math Department will accept an AP Calculus score for Math 135
- If you have taken both Math 134 and Math 135 you cannot count the credits earned from Math 134 toward the 120 credits needed to graduate
- Danielle can register a student in a Math course if the student sends her a screen shot of their ALEKS score
- Math 135R and Math 140R are reduced credit sections of Math 135 and Math 140
- They are like cross registered courses
- Students who take these courses sit in regular Math 135 or Math 140 and do the usual class work, but they receive reduced credit
- To see a students ALEKS score in WISER

- Main Menu
- Records and Enrollment
- Student Term Information
- Enter student ID into "Empl ID" box
- "Tests / Extnl Educ"
## Registering for a Course

- After add drop a student needs the permission of the instructor to enroll
- Gemma can register a student for a class up to the Friday after Add/Drop
- After that, this can only be done by the Registrar
- Gemma can only register students for CS classes and IT classes we offer
- Some IT courses require 60 credits to register
- If a course requires a certain number of credits, a student who is currently taking enough credits to meet the requirement cannot register until the grades for the current courses are submitted (Register 11/7/2016)
- In this situation you must wait until you receive a grade to have your last semester's courses counted
- If a student has had a requirement for a course, such as IT 110, waived WISER will not let them register for a course for a course since the system only checks against credit earned.(Kristen Papagua 4/3/2017)
- In such cases, the quickest way to deal with this is to give them a permission number
- Staggered registration does not apply to summer school courses for CSM but it does for College of Management (Sarah Bartlet 4/3/2017)
## Registrar Contacts

- Kristen Papuga - exceptions and graduation
- Valerie Corrente - policy issues and transfer credit
- Sarah Bartlett or Kelly Mclaughlin - registration issues
- Karen Delaney or Ana Suriel Rolles - degree audit
## Registration Issues

- I can see the holds placed on a student in WISER - Main Menu -> Campus Community -> Student Services Center -> Enter Student ID
- If a student gets the error message
Error: You cannot enroll at this time. You do not have an appointment to enroll and open enrollment has not begun.it means that staggered registration is in force and they have to wait until registration opens for them.## Repeating a Course

- A student can repeat a course but only once for a given course
- This may be done only 4 times
- A student can NEVER take a course 3 times
- To repeat more than 4 courses you need special permission from Undergraduate Studies
- This permission isn"t given out easily
- If a student wants credit for an illegally taken repeat the student must ask for a repeat policy waiver from Undergraduate Studies
- Grades for both the original and repeated course will appear in the transcript
- Only the grade for the second course is counted in the GPA
- You cannot use the credits for the original course toward the 120 credits needed for graduation
- The original course will be noted on your transcript as an “excluded repeat”
- When repeating a course, the Degree Audit will show 0 credits for the course
- The grade for the repeated course will be used to calculate the GPA even if it is lower than the original grade
- Repeating a previously passed course may affect financial aid
- WISER
will notprevent a student from registering a course more than twice- The full credit will appear when the grade for the repeated course are posted
- A good description of the repeat policy can be found here
## Second Degree from UMB

- To get a second degree from UMB a student must take an addition 30 credits
- Information about a second degree can be found here
- They need to fill out a second degree application, which can be found here
- For a second degree a student
does nothave to fulfill the College of Science and Mathematics Quantitative Reasoning requirement- They only need to full the Math prerequisites for the courses they take (Valerie Corrente 1/25/2017)
## Seminar Courses

- Seminars are specially designated courses that require significant writing
- A student who transfers with more than 30 credits doesn't need to take the First Year Seminar
- The First Year Seminar has two options

- 2 2 Credit courses
- 1 4 Credit course
- For students in our College the First Year Seminar is the Freshman Success Seminar
- The Intermediate Seminar course must be chosen from a list of courses
- All these courses are specially designed 200 level courses
- All these courses have G after their course number
## Statistics Courses for IT Majors

Course Name Prerequisites IT 111L (MSIS 11L) Managerial Statistics MATH 129 or MATH 130, or appropriate ALEKS score ECON 205 Statistical Methods ECON 101 or 102 and MATH 114Q or MATH 115 (or placement into Math 129 or 130) MATH 125 Introductory Statistics Math Placement Test or MATH 114Q or 115 or 124 or 129 or 130 or 140 PSYCH 370 Statistics PSYCH 100 or 101 and MATH 114 or MATH 115 or placement into MATH 125 SOCIOL 350 Elements of Social Statistics SOCIOL 101 and MATH 114Q or 115 or equivalent MATH level - Danielle can register a student in IT 111 if they have met the math requirements but it is not yet reflected in WISER
## Sequences

- Sequence changes must go through Governance
## Suspension

- A student who does not maintain a 2.0 cumulative average for a second semester is suspended for one semester
- They must apply for readmission
- The readmitting body may set conditions on the student’s schedule
- This body must set standards for the student to meet to stay in school
- If the student has a semester average of 2.3 for the semester before suspension they will be placed on Extended Probation
- The 2.3 average must include at least six credits with grades other than P, F, or INC
- A student can be on Extended Probation multiple times as long as they meet the requirements
- If a student has been placed on Academic Suspension they can appeal to Undergraduate Studies
- Contact Karen Ricciardi for help with this (Valerie Corrente 1/21/2017)
## Tracks

- A student should pick a track once he or she has 60 credits
- Majors and tracks don"t appear on the diploma
- Tracks are listed on the transcript including multiple tracks
- To take more than one track you fill out the same paperwork as to declare a track or major ...
- then have the program director sign it
- The Major, Minor, Concentration Declaration Form is available on line here
- A scan or picture of the filled out document can be emailed to the Registrar
## Transfer Courses

- A course with an 81xx number in the Degree Audit has been accepted for transfer ...
- but was not automatically assigned a UMB equivalent
- I can accept them for various requirements by filling out the equivalency/exception form
- When a student takes a UMB course equivalent to a transfer course, the UMB course taken in residence is used
- To be accepted for transfer credit the course must be considered college level work
- Courses like Beginning Word and Beginning Excel are never accepted for transfer
- To find out why a course has not been accepted for transfer contact Michelle Sunday, Michelle.Sunday@umb.edu, in Undergraduate Admissions or Michael Parcella, Michael.Parcella@umb.edu
- For a transfer course to be accepted as equivalent to a UMB course the course must be the exact equivalent of the UMB course
- The credits for the courses must match
- If the course is acceptable as a professional elective but is not equivalent, give it a IT 9*** number
- If the course is acceptable but not for the IT major, give it TRANS 8***
- We only accept credit for courses taken at accredited schools
## Taking a Course at Another School While at UMB

- The student must complete a Transfer Credit Permission Form
- The student must submit a course description for each course
- The student must also submit a letter which

- Why the student needs an exception to UMB policy
- Copy of unofficial transcripts
- Why the course cannot be taken at UMB
- The following considerations are used to judge the application

- Geography
- Required course not available at UMB
- Inter-campus registration agreements.
## Taking Courses at UMass Amherst

- A student who wants to take courses at UMass Amherst has two choices

- Take courses at Umass Amherst while remaining a student at UMB
- Actually transfer to UMass Amherst
- The first option see Taking a Course at Another School While at UMB above
- For the second option the student needs to contact UMass Amherst and following their procedures
## Transferring Courses from Community Colleges

- Students from a community college cannot transfer in credits for courses equivalent to a 300 or 400 level course
## Transferring to Different College in UMB

- To transfer to the College of Science and Mathematics a student must complete the Change of Major form (Marietta Schwartz, 8/30/2016)
## Unix Accounts

- Unix accounts are kept active for 2 consecutive semesters after the current one, not counting winter or summer terms
- If the student is not enrolled in a CS/IT course in the third semester, the account will be removed after the add/drop period (Ron Cheung 3/2/2017))
## Waiving Requirements

- I can waive IT 110 if I think a student's upper level work warrants it
- I have the right to waive a course required for a track
## WISER

- To see the class roster for any class in WISER go to Curriculum Management->Class Roster->Class Roster and enter the course info
## Withdrawing from a Course

- An advising hold does not have to be removed before you can withdraw from a course
- After the withdrawal date has passed, the only way to withdraw from a course is to appeal to Undergraduate Studies for a waiver of the deadline
- This is not likely to be granted
- The only other alternative is to withdraw from
allcourses- This can be done right up to the last day of classes
- When you withdraw from a course, your transcript records a W even if you take the course again
- Withdrawing from a course does not affect your GPA
- If a student stops attending classes after the NA deadline passes, for which I receive an email notification, they will receive an F for the course.
## Withdrawing from UMB

- To withdraw from the University a student should go to the University Advising Center
## Writing Proficiency

- you can only take the Writing Proficiency Exam after taking the Intermediate Seminar
- All students must take and pass the writing proficiency requirement before they reach 75 credits
- If a student reaches 75 credits without completing the Writing Proficiency Requirement, the Writing Assessment Office will place a hold on the student account
- To get the hold removed, you need to talk to the staff at the Writing Assessment Office and complete a learning contract
- There are 4 evaluation period each year for the Writing Proficiency Requirement

- October (portfolio only)
- January (exam and portfolio)
- March (portfolio only)
- June (exam and portfolio)
## Miscellaneous

- If a student has applied for a summer (August) graduation, he or she does not have access to Fall schedule in WISER
- To see the Fall courses, the student must change their graduation date by contacting the Graduation team in the Registrar's Office
- CS 119 students sit in on CS 110 and do the same work but only get two credits
