Thursday, December 13, 2012
Spring Semester classes at the University of the Virgin Islands are scheduled to begin on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. Registration for continuing UVI students is now underway, with access through the University’s Banweb system, an online registration and student information tool. Late registration for continuing students is set for Jan. 10 and 11, with an add/drop period scheduled from Jan. 14 to 18.
Returning students are reminded that they must first meet with their academic advisors to prepare individual schedules, and obtain an alternate Personal Identification Number (PIN), which is needed to access Banweb. To learn the names of their advisors, students should contact the office of the dean of their school or college. Students may also contact the Office of the Registrar or Associate Registrar via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
