Bundle 38 Campus Solutions Module by Module Updates





Bundle 38 Highlights
  • Admission Application Web Services (AAWS) Update
     
    This update is being deployed to address issues reported by a number of customers that prevented AAWS supported admissions applications and File Parser loaded admissions applications from successfully being posted after CS 9.0 Bundle #37. 
  • National Student Clearinghouse Update
    Under certain circumstances, the processes which produce the NSC report calculate invalid values. This occurs when:
    • The stats period type has Exclude Grades defined to it. 
    • The first reporting period has been generated. 
    • A second plan value where the Report as NSC Program field=Y is added to the student's program/plan stack. 
    • The student drops a class on a date that causes an exclude grade to be assigned. 
    • A second reporting period is processed using a date on or after the date of the class drop. 
    • An update is planned so that the load on the STDNT_CONS_STAT is calculated correctly.
  • Prospect/Admissions Data Load (PDL) Update for the SAT
    Campus Solutions delivered Prospect/Admissions Data Load (PDL) for the SAT in January 2015 in Campus Solutions 9.0 Bundle 36 based on the SAT format that was current at that time. Following our normal procedure for every delivered PDL template, we advised customers in our January 2015 Bundle Pre Release notes (published 1/2/2015) that we no longer update the individual test load or delivered File Parser setup after its related PDL template has been deployed. However, based on discussions with customers and guidance from the Admissions Product Advisory Group, the Oracle Campus Solutions Admissions team recognized the exceptional circumstances surrounding the changes in the redesigned SAT and plans to deliver an updated PDL for SAT File Parser template to our customers in a critical update in June, 2015. This setup provides customers with updated File Mapping Definitions and related objects based on the new SAT format, which becomes effective October 2015. 
  • Targeted Regulatory Updates to
    • 2015-2016 US Financial Aid 
      • 2015-2016 Aid Year Updates for FISAP Reporting 
        • Enable reporting for the 2014-2015 aid year data in order to apply for campus-based funds for the 2016-2017 aid year. 
        • Support the regulatory changes made to the sections of the FISAP supported by Oracle. 
      • 2015-2016 Shopping Sheet Federal Updates 
        • Support the regulatory changes made to the 2015-2016 Financial Aid Shopping Sheet template.
  • Student and Exchange Visitor Information System-SEVIS (US) 
    The US Department of Homeland Security has mandated a number of significant changes to the formatting and validation of names, addresses and email addresses which are being included in release 6.21 of SEVIS batch processing. A critical patch was made available on May 28, 2015 to customers for this important update. These updates are also planned for inclusion in Additional Features Q3 2015 (CS 9.0 bundle #38).

Campus Solutions Ongoing Projects

Academic Partnerships iStar Integration
Status:  Active
% Complete:  53%
This project facilitates the integration between iStar and AP (Academic Partnership). 


Milestones Update
Status:  Active
% Complete:  70%
The following tickets were closed and combined into this project.

1. INC0083349: Change run control for 1st milestone template process. Request ability to enter multiple terms to pick up everyone that should be assigned a template.  Either multiple terms or terms greater than xxxx would work.  Records & Enrollment > LSC Custom Recs & Enroll > LSC Enroll Students > Assign TSI Milestones in Batch

2. SCTASK0177941: We need to create a new TSI Milestone for the new Mathways initiated by the state which can complete students with a Non-Algebra Intensive pathway.  We will not be able to add a rule for this to show completion as it's not the "normal" TSI Math Complete.   We will basically have two ways to complete math for TSI. 1) Regular Algebra Intensive path – TSI Math (what we have now) and 2) Non-Algebra Intensive path – new.



Modifying Files Sent via Campus Solutions SAIP to Desire2Learn
Status: Active
% Complete:  0%
The current course titles sent via SAIP do not currently include any semester information.  We propose appending a short semester identifier to the session code in order to resolve this issue.  As the course titles are already quite long, the semester identifier would need to be short keeping two letters to identify the term (SP, SU, FA) and two numbers to identify the year.  An example of this course title may be "Introduction to Spreadsheets ITSW-1404-4001 SP14-1" where the SP14 and a dash are added before the session number.  This would resolve an issue where instructors cannot find their current course in the mail and course copy tools when they teach the same course and section over multiple terms.


Colleague Sunset
Status: Active
% Complete:  26%
To formally and officially retire all Colleague users from the prior ERP systems, Colleague, and NHCC (old NHMCCD system).


Replacement of Comevo Process
Status: Pending-Funding
% Complete:  0%
Currently,  LSC has Comevo for another year on contract to track the Orientation and Pre-Assessment Activity.  We would like to consider other options to move away from this contract whether it's possibly in-house or through another outside vendor interfacing with CS.


RSAN Emergency Management
Status: Active
% Complete:  10%
To create student files for the RSAN emergency system.


SAIP/Online College Phase 2
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
Staff Provisioning in Desire2Learn
(Users not currently enrolled in a course in Campus Solutions are not in Desire2Learn (D2L).  Utilizing Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messaging a new user can be provisioned in D2L in real time and the user can then be logged in.)

Automatically Activate/Deactivate Fully Online Courses
(Modifications to the Campus Solutions Student Administration Integration Pack (SAIP) process should allow for the automatic activation, or deactivation, of fully online courses based on the status in Campus Solutions.  Currently all courses come over as deactivated by default and this behavior should continue for all courses which are not fully online.)

Send Enrollments for Course Observations through SAIP
(Create a process for assigning multiple course observers, teaching assistants and librarians while sending these enrollments through SAIP.)

Update the Run Control for the SAIP process
(Currently all files are sent in separate announcements with hard coded timings.  D2L is expecting these files to all be in a single announcement.  The SAIP process should be updated to send all of these files in a single announcement.  When single files are selected, the timing should be configurable.)

SAIP Real Time (Close to)
(Adjust the SAIP Interface so that we can move to a close to real time integration.)


SPEEDE Transcript Phase 2
Status: Proposal
% Complete:  0%
Second phase of the SPEEDE inbound process.


TouchNet Mobile Application
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
LSC is moving to a mobile platform for many of its registration and website activities. We would like to add the payment feature to this as well.  Students can currently pay on their mobile devices but it requires alot of manipulation (pinching and scrolling, etc) to complete the task.  The TouchNet mobile app will provide a better student payment experience for phones, tablets, etc.
