University of Massachusetts Boston

Steps for cross-registration for students registered at UMass Boston:

  1. Students should get approval in advance from their advisor or program director if they want a GCWS course to count towards their UMB degree requirements.

  2. Students then enroll in GCWS courses using the WOST rubric through the WISER system. Courses may include: WGS 597: Special Topics: Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies, WGS 581: Special Topics: Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies (Seminar in Gender, Power, Politics), WGS: 583: Special Topics: Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies (Seminar in Gender, Culture, Society); WGS 599: Dissertation Workshop, and WGS 591: Feminist Inquiry.

  3. All students should contact Chris Bobel, the UMB faculty representative to the GCWS, who will confirm enrollment in the system.

  4. Email the GCWS Program Manager to confirm your enrollment through the WISER system.

  5. Note that students who are planning to finish a degree the semester in which they are enrolled in a GCWS course have to contact the GCWS Program Manager and the course instructors at the beginning of the semester with their graduation and grade deadline date. The grade deadlines of both institutions may not coincide and, depending on the semester, these students may need to submit work for early evaluation by the instructors in order to graduate on time.

  6. At the close of the semester, the GCWS Program Manager will send students’ grades to Professor Chris Bobel, who will input the grades into the UMass Boston system.
