Webinar recap: ACE and Registration

If you missed our live webinar about the Academic Center for Excellence, no worries! We have all the details here.

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE Center) provides academic advising for first-year students here at UNF. Each freshman is assigned an academic advisor that will begin working with freshmen starting at their orientation. The academic advisors help students understand which courses they should take and the academic policies.

The ACE Center also offers peer tutoring. The tutors are available in the office to help with all course subjects to ensure that freshmen are successful academically. Also, there is a PATH program (Peer Assisted Tutoring in Housing), which allows tutors to meet in on-campus housing to offer tutoring in a variety of subjects.

Student Holds

Student holds can be viewed on your MyWings account. This is important to view because if you have holds on your account, it will prevent you from registering for classes. An example of a hold could be any financial aid issues, not registering/paying for a meal plan, etc.

Degree evaluation

Osprey Map

The Osprey Map is a great tool that tells students which courses to take for each semester. This ensures that students are taking the proper classes in the correct order.

Osprey Course Scheduler

The Osprey Course Scheduler is a convenient new tool that creates students’ course schedules. This can be accessed through MyWings account under the records tab. (Click “more,” and then “Osprey Course Scheduler.”) This tool can be accessed before your time ticket becomes available, save it in your cart for so that when it is your time to register for classes, you’ll be set to go!

Course Evaluation Results

This is also called the Instructional Student Questionnaire (ISQ). It allows students to evaluate their professors and classes that they’ve had. This is helpful to other students in deciding which class and professor to register for based on the rating results. The results are by UNF students who have taken the course. The UNF Student Government has advocated for students to view this information so we recommend that students utilize it for their academic needs.
