Nebraska Student Information System (NeSIS) Project Update
March 16, 2010 Issue #8
CSC NeSIS e-News is produced each week to notify the campus of important announcements and progress that is being made with the new PeopleSoft based student information system, aka NeSIS. Previous versions of eNews are archived on the CSC NeSIS Website, http://www.csc.edu/nesis/updates.csc
Faculty and Staff access to the portal is live! Access information has been distributed to faculty and staff CSC e-mail accounts.
The fall/spring 2010-11 course schedule is accessible for viewing!
It can be accessed via the following steps
Faculty and staff are being asked to encourage students to login in to the PeopleSoft portal by announcing this in classes and reminding them as they speak to students over the phone or in person. NUIDs and passwords were e-mailed to EagleMail accounts in early February. It is strongly suggested that students claim their account and familiarize themselves with the portal prior to pre-registration.
Student Services staff continue to plan Fall/Spring 2010 course registration events. Details will be announced as the schedule is available.
Conversion efforts continue to focus on Transfer Credit and subsequent runs for bio/demo, enrollment history, and course schedules.
Training sessions on InfoAssist is taking place in Lincoln. Technical staff will be learning how to use this application to develop ad hoc reports. These individuals will then train functional staff interested in creating their own reports.
Faculty and Students will be affected by a Student Information System Outage from 4:00MT July 30th through August 1st. During this time, access to the current and new student information systems to enter and view summer grades, enroll in courses, etc will be unavailable. The outage is necessary to convert financial balances from the current to the new student information system. Additional information will be provided as the conversion process proceeds.
A Go-Live schedule is provided by clicking on the MyCSC link on the CSC home page. The numerous services offered in PeopleSoft will be phased in according to the NeSIS project schedule. As services go-live, the Service name in the chart will be changed into a link. E-mail notices will also be issued to employees and to students. As the NeSIS project progresses additional services will be added to the chart.
All faculty and staff have access to PeopleSoft. Faculty and staff accounts were e-mailed to employees on March 16.
Because the NeSIS project involves 7 State of Nebraska college and university campuses sharing a common authentication system referred to as TrueYou, a new unique ID is required for access to the PeopleSoft environment. The new ID is printed on CSC ID cards issued beginning with the fall 2009 term. All faculty and staff should have a new CSC ID card issued as of the beginning of the fall 2009 term. If you are in need of a new ID card, please contact Janet Hartman in Crites Hall room 110.
From February 1st until late August, current and prospective on-campus students should contact the CSC Admissions Office for changes to their address, phone number, and marital status. Providing these changes to the college will ensure that contact information is consistent and updated. For a short time, CSC will be doing business in both the current and new student information systems so it is important that accurate data is in both databases. Students will once again be able to make these changes themselves when the current student information system is retired and the new system is fully live!
Prospective students contact Admissions, (308) 432-6263
