Session number: 4991
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 | 03:45–04:15 p.m. MST

Join us as we present with Miami Dade College. Miami Dade College offers stackable degrees that allow a student to build upon their coursework with completion points along the way. College Credit Certificates can lead to an associate in science degree. An associate in science degree could lead to an associate in arts degree or even a Baccalaureate. Does a student who is pursuing an associate in science degree qualify for the College Credit Certificate associated with the degree? This session will cover how Miami Dade leveraged the delivered PeopleSoft product using ADB report types, queries, and automated graduation. It will also detail the development of a customization that identifies students who have met the requirements for programs outside of their declared program/plan and graduate them.

Implementing online program registration using activity guide
Session number:
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 | 01:15–02:15 p.m. MST

New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) had been using a paper based, in-person program registration process for many years and the institution was facing challenges with registration and backfilling of seats. Working with Deloitte, the college decided to implement Student Activity Guide functionality to address these challenges and to make the registration process easier, more accessible and simpler for incoming students. This session will discuss the solutions that were a part of the project. At the heart of the solution is the newly created Program Registration Activity Guide Master Template, which consists of both delivered and custom components. For notifications, 3C’s were utilized for all registration related messages.

Growing pains to the re-design of electronic test score data transfer processes
Session number:
Tuesday, March 27 | 09:45–10:15 a.m. MST

Your presenters—the Business Process Manager from the University of Windsor and a senior consultant with Deloitte's Higher Education practice—will walk you through the Mobile Calendar solution and how it can help you implement a successful digital mobile strategy.

Applying ourselves: An admitting office’s quest for flexibility and consolidation
Session number: 4689
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 | 02:30–03:00 p.m. MST

The Division of Continuing Studies (DCS) at University of Wisconsin-Madison serves as the admitting office for the University’s non-degree-seeking/special students. DCS recently identified a growing problem for its applicants, as well as its application processing staff—it was offering too many application options in an effort to accommodate individual program needs. At the peak, DCS offered six different admission applications, with about 20 percent of incoming apps requiring manual entry into the Campus Solutions SIS. This medley of options created confusion for students, but also proved troublesome and time-consuming for the application processing staff. It was important to keep the specialized content and questions, but the big question was “How to consolidate and streamline?” Hear DCS share their journey and lessons learned as they moved to Campus Solutions.

Who moved my cloud?
Session number: 5128
Monday, March 26, 2018 | 09:45–10:45 a.m. MST

This panel discussion will bring together multiple institutions who are on different paths for their SIS modernization of legacy systems and adoption of cloud technology. Discussion will address how the institution decided upon their paths, what their perspectives are on cloud technology for student, and how they are and have worked to improve their systems, student support capabilities, and student experience. Panel will work off of both prepared questions on these topics as well as give attendees the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
