Course Evaluations


COURSE EVALUATIONS: A brief overview

Every term, students are asked to evaluate the courses they are enrolled in. STU uses a blended approach to facilitate that process and to maximize participation.  On-ground courses use the traditional paper-based forms, while the online students use an online form to evaluate their courses.

Each course has a unique “section” or “location” code which determines whether your class is classified as On-ground, Online, Blended, Independent Study, or Internship.
Example: MAT-602-170

If an on-ground class is following a blended format, but has an on-ground location or section number, please advise the Registrar’s office, so that it can be correctly classified in the system.

Each course evaluation cycle, the system sends an automated email to the official professor listed on the course, with a link and instructions for students to complete the online evaluation.

By design, once a student has completed the course evaluation, they will no longer be able to view that particular course on their drop-down menu.

Network Access Control (Wi-Fi Portal)

St. Thomas University is upgrading our Network Access Control (NAC) system to help ensure that your wireless devices are safely admitted to our Wi-Fi campus network.  Creating a safe computing environment for our community is the primary objective for this upgrade.

Users will need to periodically (once per semester) login to our Wi-Fi login portal to enable access to our network and by extension the internet.  The login portal will resemble the portals commonly encountered at Wi-Fi hotspots established by coffee shops, hotels and retail shops.  Once connected to our Wi-Fi network you will simply enter your STU credentials at the web page that appears when you open your web browser.  After successfully authenticating your device (phone, laptop, etc.) it will be registered for the rest of the semester, subsequently you won’t need to login until the next semester.  For campus residents, game consoles can be registered via a dedicated registration page.

This upgrade will occur over the winter break and be fully implemented for the start of the Spring Semester.  We will be distributing instructional material further explaining the device registration process in the coming weeks.

Copier Fleet Migration

The University is pleased to announce we will be upgrading the existing fleet of Multi-Function Printer/Copiers (MFP) over the next several weeks, the new generation of equipment will be from the same manufacturer and feature improved speed and reliability.  We've designed and timed the upgrade so that it will be as low impact on the community as possible.

More information on when your Departmental/Area MFP will be replaced will be distributed shortly.
