SJB Advisors

The judicial process can be daunting to navigate in the best of times, but when you have been charged with violating the Code of Non-Academic Conduct it can be particularly stressful.  You do not have to go through this experience without support.  There are many members of our community who have been trained as process advisors.  These people have an in depth understanding of the judicial process and can help you prepare for a hearing and put your best foot forward.   

The members of the Student Judicial Board would also like to provide support for you and be available to answer any questions you might have about the CNAC and/or the judicial process.  Each week, one SJB member will hold office hours and will be available to answer questions about a particular incident you may be involved in or to answer questions you may have about the hearing process.  This support is designed to provide general support for students who have been accused of violating the CNAC or may want more in depth knowledge of the process from the students who are trained and have responsibility to hear judicial cases.


The office hours will change each week, so you should check the Student Affairs web site, for the available times.  Please contact the dean of student’s office with any questions.


Sincerely, The Dean of Student’s office and the Student Judicial Board

Major Certification Form Training Session — Wed., 10/12 at 4-5 p.m.

Start Tracking Fulfillment of  Your Major!!

You can access the new Major Certification Form link in the Wesleyan Career bucket in your portfolio.  When you click on the link you will be brought to a landing page where all of your majors are listed.  If your particular major has multiple tracks or concentrations, you will see a separate link for each.  Since departments/programs do not currently require you to officially identify which track or concentration you are pursuing, you can navigate between them and see how each is progressing.

This tool is designed to directly interface with your individual academic history which means that if you have taken a course that has been pre-identified by your major as satisfying a requirement, that course will automatically pre-populate on the form and a check box will appear next to the course.  If you wish to use that particular course to satisfy a requirement, you simply need to check the box, click submit, and the course will be applied.

There is also an “override” feature that allows you to propose a course outside of the pre-approved course list.  You can either choose a course already posted to your academic record from a drop-down menu, or type in free-form text explaining what you would like to offer for consideration.  Once you submit an override request, your advisor will be prompted to take an action similar to those currently being used in drop/add.  Your advisor will be able to “approve,” “disapprove,” or click “see me” in response to your individual request.

There are also “planning text” links built into the form to accommodate departments/programs that require their students to project out and inform their advisor of how they intend to fulfill the major.  Once submitted, the planning text boxes become part of the online form until you choose to update or delete them.

We envision the electronic Major Certification Form to be a useful planning tool when registering for courses.  Each requirement displayed on the form contains a hyperlink to a complete list of courses that have been pre-approved to satisfy that requirement.

You can begin working with this electronic form from the moment you are accepted into a major.  Please consult with your individual department/program for any form-related deadlines.  Seniors will be required to submit their final version of the form at the end of Drop/Add in their final semester of their senior year for degree certification.  Your department/program will use this form to certify that you have completed the requirements for the major, whereas a committee will certify that you have completed all university requirements.

We will be offering training on the Major Certification Form to juniors and seniors on the following dates:  

  • Wednesday, October 12 from 4:15-5:00pm in SHAN107
  • Monday, October 17 from 12:00-1:00pm in SHAN107

We have posted documentation and FAQs on the registrar’s website  If you have any questions regarding this new application, please contact Susan Krajewski at x2738 or

CAPS Focus Group — 10/12 at 7 p.m.

Counseling and Psychological Services will facilitate its first focus group on Wednesday October 12th from 7-8 PM in the 2nd floor solarium of the Davison Health Center.  Students are invited to attend and participate in a conversation about ideas for future services and program nhancements at the counseling center.  The groups will be held every Wednesday evening from 7-8 PM for the rest of the semester, and students are welcome to attend one or several of these groups.  We hope to see you on October 12th!

WSA President’s Cabinet

Are you interested in voicing your concerns related to campus issues? Do you not feel represented by the current WSA?

Hi, my name is Zachary Malter, and I am the President of the WSA. I have decided to found the President’s Cabinet, so students can meet with me every month and provide their input on campus issues.The goal of the cabinet is to bring together diverse students from disparate areas of campus, and to allow students who wouldn’t otherwise be included in the WSA discussion to be heard. 

If you are at all interested, please e-mail me at Indicate your name, class year, e-mail, why you’re interested, and your other activities.


Please let me know if you have any questions.  All the best, Zach
