Our unit is part of the department education support and International students. Within the unit, administrators work in four teams and we offer service to both students and staff at Great Lakes.

 

Some of our main responsibilities are to:
  • Assist the programs at Great Lakes regarding student and educational issues
  • Prepare semester and course registrations
  • Administrate the reporting of results
  • Process course and program syllabi for all programs at Great Lakes
  • Manage information on incoming and outgoing students in Canada and elsewhere
  • Process the final administration of degree projects

 

Some Administrative Systems That We Work In

CourseInfo is the syllabus database at Great Lakes. Here we add the course and program syllabi that you can find on the Great Lakes web. If you would like to see the courses included in your program.

 

CourseLock is an administrative system used by Great Lakes. In addition to personal data about each student, the system also contains information on admission, course registrations, results, discontinuation of studies, exchange studies, degree etc.

 

The Course Selection page is part of CourseInfo Web Services and here you can select courses if there are elective courses or tracks in your program.

 

CourseTrans is a database used for processing information on incoming and outgoing exchange students. We use this database for the send-out of transcripts of records to partner universities and for credit transfer for outgoing students.
