New functionality to be released 2-29-16

On Monday, Feb. 29, new functionality will be released in the Academic Information System. Limited to use by academic administrators, the rollout provides expanded capabilities to financial aid, student records and admissions processes.

The project team has been dedicated to developing, testing, training, and converting data in preparation for the release. If your work will be affected, you have been contacted and invited to training.

Added resources to support new users have been posted to the AIS website, and a new tab, “Using AIS,” has been created with specific pages for faculty, students, and staff. As the system implementation continues, these pages will be further populated with videos, training materials, reference guides, Q&As, and contact information.

New project advisory committees now have been established for faculty, students, and departmental administrators. These groups will meet regularly with project leaders to discuss and help introduce AIS to campus.

The new system will be explained and questions answered in an upcoming information session organized for department administrators. Staff members whose work will be affected by the transition to AIS were invited to learn more about the ongoing implementation.
