Second employee leaves registrar's office during registration

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- Associate Registrar Colleen Hannon has retired, effective immediately.  Hannon has worked for Westminster since June 1984 Her retirement comes just days after Registrar Scott Wignall’s resignation went public.  He has taken a position with Jenzabar, the company that provides the central data management system for the College. A registrar organizes and keeps student records, class schedules and information for graduation requirements and transcripts.

President Richardson commented to The Holcad on the scenario and is assuring first-year students that there will be no interruptions to their registration process on Friday. 

“A search is open for [Wignall’s] replacement,” said Richardson. “I don’t think there will be any disruption in students’ abilities to register for classes or do the other things that they need to do. I think there will be an announcement coming out from Dean McMinn about plans for [both positions] very soon.” 

Dean McMinn informs The Holcad that "an interim search is underway and an announcement of a replacement will be made to the campus community at the appropriate time...We anticipate no impact on students’ ability to register.  Students who have any scheduling questions should first check with their academic advisor. Any specific challenges with my.westminster can be noted by email to registrar@westminster.edu."

First-year students can start registering for spring courses at 7 A.M. on Friday, October 29Richardson offered a reminder to first-years that they must meet with their academic advisor to be cleared to schedule for spring classes.   

I wouldencourage our first-years to meet with their Peer Success Coaches [in] their Westminster 101 courses. They’re there to help. Having that peer calms some of the anxiety down. So, [students should] see their advisor. If they have needs, they can consult with the PSC, and, of course, folks in our Academic Success Center (ASC) are always ready to stand to help as well.” 

The Academic Success Center is on the fourth floor of Thompson-Clark Hall.
