Student Academic Services User Group January 10, 2018 Meeting Minutes

Time and Location:

Wednesday, January 10, 9 - 10 a.m. in 2520D UCC 


1. Midterm Evening Exam Processing

Caroline Jens and Renee Houser from Classroom Scheduling - Office of the Registrar presented and demonstrated the new Exam Needs tool in MAUI.

The new tool captures all relevant information in one interface

  • Course offerings load to the tool, so ADAs will have access to all courses in one place
  • All midterm exam requests created through the needs tool will automatically feed into MAUI course offerings when the exam is created by our office
  • This eliminates the possibility we could enter your submitted information incorrectly
  • Information is retained in MAUI, so you will always have access to prior session requests
