1. Bulletins go online today, printed bulletins discontinued

The university’s Undergraduate, Health Science Professional and Law School bulletins are accessible online at bulletin.marquette.edu beginning today, May 31, for the 2011-12 academic year. The new site is searchable, more up-to-date, easier to use, more cost-effective and improves the university’s manual, paper-based process of changing and updating the curriculum. Users are invited to provide feedback and identify concerns regarding the site through a form at the bottom of each page.

As a result of the new bulletin software application — with the ability to access degree requirements, course and policy information online — the printed bulletins will no longer be produced.

The new site is the most up-to-date source of course information and policy changes for all students. Since students’ graduation requirements are set by the standards that were in place when they first enrolled, undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors should use Academic Advisement to track their progress and requirements. They can also consult their printed bulletin (or online PDF). Undergraduate and health sciences professional faculty and academic advisers will be able to use the online bulletin for advising purposes as well.

The Graduate School, Graduate School of Management and School of Dentistry bulletins will go online in July.

For more information, contact Georgia McRae, university registrar, at 8-7596.
