Banner Briefs

Fall grade-entry a success
For the first time in its history, all final semester (fall 2008) grades at West Lafayette were submitted online in December. More than 99 percent of grades were reported by the Dec. 23 deadline — much earlier than in previous years. About 72 percent were submitted using myPurdue, and 28 percent submitted through Blackboard Vista.

Transcripts now available online
Students currently enrolled at West Lafayette now can order transcripts from the Office of the Registrar through myPurdue. Requests for transcripts also can be made in Room 45 of Hovde Hall or at the kiosk outside that office. There are no fees for requesting transcripts.

Purdue e-mail vital for students
Although there are a number of ways the University can communicate to students, the primary vehicle is Purdue e-mail. All billing, financial aid, registration and other important information is sent to their @purdue.edu e-mail address, so it is vital that they check this account regularly. Tom Robinson, vice president for student services, sent this message to all students last September, and faculty and staff who work directly with students should reiterate this point often.

Provost collecting feedback
The Office of the Provost is gathering feedback from associate deans to assist the Office of the Registrar and OnePurdue with planning future enhancements to the myPurdue portal.
