Progress continues on new student administration system
Two modules of the new student administration system were released today.
“The course scheduling and academic advisement modules of the new PeopleSoft system will support the other pieces such as course registration that will be launched early in March,” says Rick Palmer, project manager of the Queen’s University Administrative Systems Replacement student team.
Launching the course scheduling module allows the timetabling process for the 2011-12 academic year to proceed according to the usual timeline. Close to 100 administrators received access to the module. The launch will not impact students until the timetable is posted and they start registering for classes.
The academic advisement module in PeopleSoft allows students, as well as their advisors, to view the progress they have made toward meeting their degree requirements. Access to this module has been granted to approximately 20 administrators in the faculties of Arts and Science, Engineering and Applied Science, Law and Education as well as the Office of the University Registrar. They will make final adjustments such as tailoring the text that students see before the module is opened up to a broader group of users.
Preparations for implementing the next phase of the PeopleSoft system are proceeding according to plan. The release, slated for early March, includes 12 additional core pieces that include student records, student financials and academic advisement.
