GradAdm and DB2 will be replaced with Campus Solutions, see diagram in "Graduate Professional School Integration" support documentation.  Future of Jazzee and GradLink/GLOW and what new admits see during SIR process out of scope for this decision.

Rationale:
GradAdm has already been identified as "an area for improvement" by stakeholdersl. Minimal business process changes. Addresses pain-points related to Early-start programs, Reporting, Quality Control, Self-service transactions. Turn-around time for communications, identity management.
