Students are encouraged to check their summer 2007 schedules via ZipLine.
• Log into ZipLine with their UANet ID and password
• Click on the “Students” tab, select “Academics” from the list and then select “View My Class Schedule.”
• Information regarding course meeting times, days and room location is given in real-time; in other words, all information is up to date as it is retrieved.

The Office of the University Registrar sends an e-mail to the instructor of record and all enrolled students’ UA Net e-mail address when there is a classroom change made in the course(s) they are enrolled. It is recommended that instructors and students check their UANet e-mail often for any important messages from the University as this will be the official means of notification used by the Office of the University Registrar.

Students may access a computer from many locations on campus including:
• Simmons Hall – Lobby
• Student Union – Laptop Check Out and Kiosks
• Residence Halls – Computer Labs
• Carroll Hall – Adult Focus Office, Room 55
• Bierce Library – Computer Labs and Laptop Check Out
• The Polsky Building – Room 192
• Buchtel College of Arts & Sciences building – Computer Lab Room 103B and Kiosks in Atrium
• College of Business Administration Building – Room 102

For students who do not have access to a computer, a listing of courses with classroom assignments will be available at the Student Union Information Desk and the Bierce Library Circulation Desk.

Questions regarding your course schedule may be directed to the Office of the University Registrar at Registration@uakron.edu or 330-972-8300 (choose option #4 for Registration).

Learn the basics of applied probability in the context of gambling games in a one-credit workshop to be taught from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every day next week (May 14-18) by Dr. Timothy Norfolk, a professor in UA's Department of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics.

Workshop participants will learn about simple probability, house percentages, basic strategies and bets or games to avoid. This is a credit/non-credit workshop that meets neither the University mathematics requirement, nor the 47-hour rule for the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences. Part of most sessions will include practice of the games in question. The course ID and class number 3450:491/591. Additional details.
