New Web-Based Service for Zicklin Undergraduates
ZUPS Online Permission System Goes Live at Baruch
The Zicklin undergraduate office has created an online permission request system, allowing students to quickly make all registration-related permission requests via the Web. The Zicklin Undergraduate Permission System (ZUPS) will speed and simplify what was once a time-consuming and potentially confusing procedure.
Phyllis Zadra, the associate dean of the Zicklin School of Business, was aware of the need to streamline the permission process: “Sometimes students were unaware of the appropriate office to visit in order to make the request, and almost always students ended up sitting around waiting to be seen by staff who were overwhelmed with requests pertaining to registration.”
Now, students can simply choose from a list of permission requests, click on the appropriate link, and complete the resulting online request form. Students will then be notified by email as to the status of their submitted request.
Types of student requests that can be done online include: temporary Zicklin (ZK) codes, waiver of prerequisites for business courses, taking more than two accounting courses in a final semester, taking business courses as a BA or BS student, changing of major/minor, and make-up exams. Certain criteria must be met in order to receive these special permissions.
With approximately 2,000-3,000 students requesting some type of permission in each registration period, ZUPS is sure to make a lot of friends at Baruch.
