The Roy H. Park School of Communications is piloting a program that allows all student override requests for courses in the Park School to be completed online. The initiative is part of an effort from the Office of the Provost, Information Technology Services and the Park School to put the 40 most used college forms online.
This initiative is a positive step toward a more effective registration system. Online forms that are easily accessible at any time are a common sense solution that will reduce paper usage and help students register more easily. All schools within Ithaca College should be developing the technology to allow students to complete forms online.
A comprehensive system for submitting forms online would save both faculty and students time. Students wouldn’t have to trek around campus completing forms, and faculty wouldn’t have to be present to accept said forms or answer questions that could easily be dealt with through an online forum.
