How People Are Impacted

  • Go-Live 2 involves the launch of a new tool for managing applications, and the annual process of training readers on the latest policies and standards of evaluation. Applicants who are applying for admission to Fall 2016 will be the first cohort whose data will be be loaded into the new system. This is the first time that staff will email, post checklist items, and read applications in the same system in which applicants login to view their application status, submit checklist items, and view admission decisions.
  • The Office of the Registrar and Class Schedulers within colleges and schools will begin to set up and create the schedule of classes for Fall 2016 in the new SIS.
