PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 Upgrade

The PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 Upgrade is an upgrade of our student systems done in two phases. 

The first phase, the "Technical Upgrade," is an upgrade of the technical platform from version 9.0 to 9.2. This is being done to maintain vendor support for security and regulations as well as allow for adoption of future vendor-released functionality. This was completed September 24, 2017. Students, faculty, and staff will notice little to no changes as a result of this technical upgrade. 

The second phase, the "Functional Upgrade," will be several months dedicated to implementing process improvements utilizing available delivered tools. During this phase, functionality will be released on a monthly basis rather than one, final launch date. This phase will end June 2018
