[Micronet] Start of semester student systems freeze, August 21- September 4

Ist-Comm Departmental
Good morning,

The start of the semester is a peak period of activity that results in a significantly increased load on our infrastructure and IT systems. To minimize potential disruptions at the start of the fall 2014 semester, campus IT is implementing its customary two-week freeze on changes impacting student systems.

Freeze dates

The freeze begins at 8:00 pm, Thursday, August 21, 2014, and will last through 8:00 pm, Thursday, September 4, 2014.

Affected systems

Affected systems or applications are those that either support students directly or that staff utilize in support of students. They include the following:

  • MyFinaid
  • CARS
  • DARS
  • Bear Facts
  • Graduate Admissions
  • Undergraduate Admissions
  • Tele-BEARS
  • Info-BEARS
  • Online Add/Drop
  • Course Approval
  • Class and Room Assignment
  • Transfer Course Articulation
  • Student Registration
  • Student Fees
  • Student Census
  • Student Records
  • Summer Sessions
  • Other systems as neededĀ 

Exception requests

Customers with time-critical changes may request an exception through the IST Change Release Management (CRM) team by contacting the IT Service Desk at 664-9000 option 1, 4, 2 orĀ [hidden email].

Due to the high volume of activity, customers may notice delays when provisioning IT services unrelated to student systems during the freeze period.
