Notifications

When a student requests approval to add, drop, or change registration for a subject, a notification is sent to the first approver such as the instructor of the subject (if the instructor’s approval is required).  After an approval decision is entered, a notification is sent to the next approver (such as the student’s academic advisor).  By default, notifications are sent once a day and list all of the requests for approval that have been made for you that day.  You may choose to change the notification settings to receive an email every time a request is made or only once per week.  To change notification settings, click “Settings” in the menu bar.
