1. Course bulletins go online today, printed bulletins discontinued

The university’s Graduate School, Graduate School of Management and School of Dentistry bulletins are accessible online at bulletin.marquette.edu beginning today, Aug. 1, for the 2011-12 academic year. The new site is searchable, more up-to-date, easier to use and more cost-effective. Users are also invited to provide feedback and identify concerns regarding the site through a form at the bottom of each page. This site is the most up-to-date source of course, degree and policy information for all students.

The university’s Undergraduate, Health Science Professional and Law School bulletins went online at the end of May.

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.

2. Student payroll and refund direct deposits now combined

Direct deposit for both student payroll and refunds from the Office of the Bursar are now available through a single self-service tool through CheckMarq.

Students can log on to CheckMarq, go to Quick Links, select the Bursar tab and click on “sign up for direct deposit.” By entering checking or savings account information one time only, students will receive timely delivery of both their paycheck and, if applicable, any credit balance due. To authorize direct deposit, students will need to enter their bank account number and bank routing number. Previously, students needed to sign up for payroll direct deposit through MyJob and refund direct deposit through CheckMarq.

Students should submit direct deposit information by Wednesday, Aug. 17 (Monday, Aug. 15 for law students), to prevent interruptions in refund payments. Students who register by Wednesday, Aug. 17, will receive their student payroll by direct deposit.

Students who have previously registered for payroll direct deposit do not need to re-enter their direct deposit information, but should verify account information by logging in to either CheckMarq or MyJob to review account information.

5. Take shelter during severe weather

Members of the Marquette community are reminded to take shelter immediately when the local emergency sirens sound for severe weather. A tornado warning means that a tornado is in the area and everyone should take immediate shelter, preferably in a basement or below-ground location.

A tornado watch means that conditions are right for a tornado. Continue normal activities but monitor the situation.

Familiarize yourself with the location of the nearest emergency shelter. Check with your facility manager or supervisor for the location of emergency shelters on campus. For more information, see page 15 of the Emergency Procedures Guide.
