Q. What electives or other classes can I take?
A. A minimum of 4.5 credit hours of electives are required to complete MBAn degree requirements. Most students will complete these during the Winter term. MBAn students may enroll in any graduate-level elective course for which they meet the prerequisite requirements.

Q. How do I find out what courses are being offered and when?
A. You can currently view the full University schedule of classes on Wolverine Access, or via the Office of the Registrar – this site has a helpful CSV file version that can be downloaded and filtered to identify Ross classes. For general overviews of business courses being offered each term, browse the Ross course descriptions.

Q. What classroom resources are needed?

A. Textbook and other course requirements are typically available on each course’s Canvas page or on Wolverine Access. 

Core Requirements: Get Set

Q. What are my core requirements?
A.  Be sure to review the core curriculum for MBAn students to make sure you understand the degree requirements for the MBAn program.

Q. How can I keep track of which core requirements I have or haven’t completed?
A. The program office is currently working with the Ross Registrar’s Office to update your live degree audit in Wolverine Access. When this process is complete, you will be informed. In the meantime, you are welcome to schedule an MBAn Student Degree Audit Check appointment with an academic advisor.

General Registration: Go!

Q. How do I register for my courses?
A. You will automatically be block enrolled into your core courses for the Summer and Fall terms. To register for elective courses, students will use the University’s general registration process on Wolverine Access. Please refer to How to Add & Drop Classes for more detailed registration instructions.

Q. When is my registration appointment time?
A. Registration for Summer 2023 and Fall 2023 coursework will happen in the coming months.

Q. Do I need to use the backpack feature in Wolverine Access before registration opens?
A.  It is recommended that you do, but it is not required. Backpacking allows you to quickly add those classes all at once when your registration appointment time opens. However, be aware that backpacking does not reserve a seat for you in the class – it is simply a way to put the course in your “shopping cart” so that you can “check-out” quickly. If a class in your backpack does not have room available when your registration time opens, you may have to waitlist yourself, and/or select an alternate open class at that time.

Q. Do I have to register exactly at my appointment time, and when does my registration close?
A. You do not need to register for your elective coursework exactly at your appointment time, but some classes will fill quickly, or seats may be opened to non-Ross students after registration has been open for a week or more, so it is to your advantage to register when your appointment time opens. Once your appointment time opens, you can continue to make changes until the drop/add deadlines for Summer and Fall 2023.

Q: How can I learn how to use Wolverine Access to drop/add classes?
A:  Wolverine Access is the University website that maintains course registration, student records, address updates, and more. Using your uniqname and password, you can drop or add classes, check your registration or grades, update your address, and request transcripts. If you have questions about how to use or perform certain functions in Wolverine Access you can log in under Student Business, click on Student Center and search the help menu for detailed step by step instructions and tips. 

Important Rules and Policies: What You Need to Know 

It is each student’s responsibility to review the course registration rules and policies carefully.

Q. I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?
