Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Statement of Direction 2014-2015



Campus Solutions Ongoing Projects

Academic Partnerships iStar Integration
This project facilitates the integration between iStar and AP (Academic Partnership). 

Automated Test Load and Credit
This project is to streamline the processing of test loads and the automated test credit functionality in iStar.  Currently, test credit is processed on request only and entered semi-manually into the system.  The business owners have requested to explore options and assist with the setup of a more automated option.

Bundle 35 and Retrofit
To apply the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions application software Bundle 35 which delivers regulatory compliance updates for Financial Aid Regulatory Release 4 for 2014-2015.  It also provides a number of software fixes, enhancements and satisfies the prerequisites for Campus Solutions Bundle 35.  We will also apply the Oracle Managed Services Retrofit project and any Oracle prerequisite patches or post bundle release critical patches.

Door Access/Badge System
To provide a single repository of information in order to generate student ID cards from a single-source system, and to control badge access to sensitive areas for students, particularly Health Professions.

Enrollment Cancellation Enhancement
This project is to drop the last class first for credit classes which is an enhancement to the current enrollment cancellation process.

Federal College Work Study Integration-Enhancement
This modification is needed to satisfy a requirement of the State of Texas and the Federal Government. Each year, both entities require the institution to report work study data elements on all recipients of the award. Data elements include but are not limited to bio/demo data, FAFSA information, and award information.  Campus Solutions does not provide a way to track student's earnings.

Follett Bookstore Interface
This project is to create the VM's and install the Follett ConnectOnce appliance which will allow for a more streamlined, accurate and flexible course import process.  The benefit is to more accurately identify and stock LSCS textbooks to students by allowing more frequent data loads that are pulled from Campus Solutions rather than static Excel spreadsheets.

Symplicity Accommodate Disability Services Database
Implement Symplicity Accommodate Disability Service Database.  Sympliciy Accommodate is compatible with PeopleSoft.  It will be important to refresh data nightly (can be an automatic refresh), once implemented, so that accurate reports can be generated through ORIE. 

Milestones Cleanup and Enhancement
Milestones – New Development. Add logic for Veterans Waiver.

Modifying Files Sent via Campus Solutions SAIP to Desire2Learn
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
To formally and officially retire all Colleague users from the prior ERP systems, Colleague, and NHCC (old NHMCCD system).

Replacement of Comevo Process
Currently,  LSCS 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
To create student files for the RSAN emergency system.

Texas State Reporting
To provide data for Texas State Reporting including TEOG, Texas Grant and FAD001 enhancements and corrections.

VA Benefit Certification
To roll out the delivered Campus Solutions VA Benefit functionality to support the VA certification business process.
