The Pass 2 registration period for students to enroll for Fall Quarter classes is being moved up to accommodate a major upgrade to the Banner Student Information System. It will now conclude on Aug. 31 instead of the published date of Sept. 8. About 29,000 undergraduate and graduate students will be affected. "We acknowledge that the schedule change may inconvenience some students," University Registrar Frank Wada said, "but we feel it is in the best interest of smooth enrollment for students and the upgrade." The Banner Student Information System will be unavailable from 5 p.m. Sept. 1, through 8 a.m. Sept. 5. Read the full story at http://www.news.ucdavis.edu/search/news_detail.lasso?id=7838.
