After consultation with the Registrar’s Office, a new procedure was developed that enables departmental administrative assistants to input information about faculty adviser assignments for their respective majors directly via native Banner. This makes our organization more efficient by removing two steps from the previous process; namely, removing the sending of spreadsheets to the Dean’s office, which then sends them to the Registrar’s office. For the programs that have over 100 incoming first-year students, the administrative assistants can still make spreadsheets that can then be sent directly to the Registrar’s office for further processing. The Dean’s Office will continue to handle all Undeclared Majors and students who change majors.
The step-by-step instruction guide as well as the training video can be downloaded from the castech folder in the CAS Administrative Assistants Blackboard course.
