Department of Education. "We didn't
want to hold up people who were eligible
for aid but were confused by the question
or thought it didn't apply to them"
"This law will deter people from using
drugs" said Angela Flood, spokeswoman
for US. Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.) who
introduced the bill. " It will make people
responsible for their actions."
U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has
been opposed to the law since it was
introduced by Souder two years ago.
Recently he attempted to introduce legis-
lation to o ertur the law, but the mea-

sure was defeated in Congress.
"This excessively harsh reaction is
symptomatic of the national drug policy"
Frank said. "We single out drug offend-
ers, but we don't single out assault or
rape. Both presidential nominees have
admitted to using drugs, and they have
not been penalized for it."
Opponents of the measure have
accused the law of being unfairly puni-
tive to minorities and the poor Although
blacks and whites have approximately the
same rate of drug use, 59 percent of peo-
ple convicted for drug offenses are
African-Arnerican. In addition, the oppo-
nents contend, the law would be inherent-
1y biased against the poor, who are most

in need of federal financial assistance.
"That is an insult to the minorities and
the poor," Flood said. "It makes a leap in
assuming that minorities in college use
more drugs." Flood also pointed out that
the law would only apply to students cur-
rently receiving financial aid, and that
students could regain eligibility by par-
ticipating in a rehabilitation program and
testing clean for drugs.
The law demands a suspension of
financial aid for one sear after the first
possession conviction, twov ears after the
second and indefinitely after the third.
The penalty for sale of drugs is one year
for the first conviction and indefinitely
after the second.

By Natalie Plosky
For the Daily
On June 5, the University implement-
ed an updated version of Wolverine
Access, with the new feature of online
registration. Wolverine Access is the stu-
dent side of a Univ ersity-wide initiatise.
led by MPathways, to make information
sytems enteilrise-wide.
indai ancock Green. communica-
tons cotditror of MPathways,
exlain d fiat s/i system was undertak-
en to1 nk riasrtion easier.
- hi decision vs isreally to rebuild an
old set - sstems so they would work
together iore effectively and efficiently:'
fGreen said.
MPathways staff worked to clean up
data in the legacy systems for months.
Four complete mock conversions were
conducted from the legacy system to the
new system. Sixty-five thousand individ-
ual student records needed to be trans-
ferred and all but about 5600 records
were converted automatically. The
remaining records had to be converted
By June 5. less than 1500 records were
left to be converted. However, no students
enrolled for Spring, Spring/Summer, or
Summer term have unconverted files.
Those files not converted are expected to
be completed today.
Students can perform the same func-
tions with the new version of Wolverine
Access with the added capability of
registering online.
"The web is so accessible now and in
many cases free" Green said.
Out of town students will no longer
have to worry about long-distance
charges when accessing their file over
the phone. Wolverine Access is still
available from 7 a.m. until midnight and
students will still be assigned a registra-
tion start time, as with the old system.
As orientation students were the first
to access the new system with the
online registration feature on June 6,
MPathways conducted exit surveys at
the orientation sessions to gauge stu-
dent's reactions to the new system.
The results from June 6 indicated a
positive response from the students.
One of several questions asked was
"flow easy was it to for you to register
for classes?" Of the 43 students sur-
veyed, 72 percent responded that is was
"very easy". Regarding the "overall
ease of use," 70 percent reported that

they were "very satisfied.
Students were asked for further com-
ments on Wolverine Access. One stu-
dent's response summed up many stu-
dents' experience with the new system.
"Some error messages were unclear.
Speed of display (was) very good. It was
so quick and easy to register for classes!
I'm so glad that we can now register
through the computer because I've heard
some horror stories about the phone sys-
item!"thestudent's survey said.
I/tt stome students expressed frustra-
tion i etheir surveys with the new system
because of various technical difficulties.
There have been problems with five or
six classes. Green said, but she pointed
out there are thousands of classes, and
thus the problems are relatively minor.
Green also said the system is in its early
stages. "It's a living system, it's not per-
fect...We'll fix this," Green said. "It may
take two or three days."
Green said she was impressed with
the student and staff interaction in solv-
ing the problems with Wolverine
Access. University staff, including
Registrar Tom McElvain, have been
actively involved in working out the
glitches with the new system.
"These are folks at the top level of
the organization of the University who
are working in their shirt-sleeves late at
night to make sure (the system) works,
Green said.
Despite minor complications with
Wolverine Access, Green said she is
pleased with the results so far.
"What we initiated was a well-
planned, well-considered community
effort by all of the schools and colleges,
the Office of Financial Aid, the Student
Financial Operations Office, the
Registrar's Office and MPathways all
working together with one specific goal,"
Green said. "The goal as to make it easi-
er to access the information and still
maintain control over that information."
If students have further questions
about addresses or phone changes, reg-
istration, schedules, grades or tran-
scripts, they should contact the
Registrar's Office. In addition, begin-
ning in the fall term, Rescomp staff will
be able to assist students with the new
Green encouraged students to give
their feedback about Wolverine Access.
Students can e-mail Green directly at
MPathways6tumich.edu or contact the
Registrar's Office.
