PeopleSoft is now the university’s system of record for student information with today’s go-live of the Campus Solutions module. The term “go-live” is used to mark the point when a computer system goes into official use, usually after an extensive period of design, development, and testing.
The implementation of PeopleSoft is part of Optimize Puget Sound, a campus-wide project to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of university operations. See today’s campus message from President Thomas for more on this mission-critical project.
Faculty will now use PeopleSoft via the Faculty Center link in Cascade to complete Fall 2013 preregistration tasks, view Spring 2013 class rosters, and enter Spring 2013 final grades. Students will utilize PeopleSoft for Fall 2013 registration, which takes place the week of April 8, through the Student Center link in Cascade. Eventually, these “centers” will be accessed in a new portal, called myPugetSound, scheduled to replace Cascade later this year.
For the remainder of the Spring term, faculty will continue to use Cascade functionality for the student alert process and to access advisee information. Financial aid capabilities in PeopleSoft are scheduled to go live in April.
Congratulations to everyone involved in reaching this major milestone!
