Sue's update (May 2015)

Thanks to all of you for making the Upgrade a success. The teamwork from all campuses has allowed us to build a solid foundation from which to move forward for student success. I am challenging the steering committees as they transition to think broadly how we can still continue to increase retention and graduation rates. Review how your committee should function going forward to continue to make progress.

Some major accomplishments from this year include:

  • A total of 482 PeopleSoft 9.0 modifications in the student workstream; this is a 53% reduction from 8.9
  • 31 pillar applications were replaced or retired through the upgrade, resulting in $4M OIT annual savings
  • Launch of STAR online scholarship application: 1,500 students have used the online scholarship application in its first year
  • peerTransfer now live: allows international students to pay the University from bank accounts in their country of origin without having to arrange for a wire transfer or pay bank transfer fees. So far, 315 payments have been received, accounting for over $2.3M paid to the University.

To view some of the 2014-15 accomplishments from across the system, please view this presentation.
