New student info online

In April Student Records (Registrar) and Student Financials (Student Accounts) will go live on the new integrated student information system. The new system's feature that is most readily apparent is the web interface.

In Student Records, approximately 450 people who use the Registrar's mainframe legacy system are being trained to view and update student information at the web location.

Students in the business school, Emory College and Oxford College will go online via the web interface this April to request their Fall 2000 courses. Students in the University's other six schools will have their course requests entered via the web interface through individuals designated in each school.

Students will be able gain access to the information now included on ESP (Emory Student Profiles), which is most often used. Further information and specifics, including directions for using the web site, will be forthcoming.

The Emory College and Oxford College admissions offices have been successfully using the new integrated student information system since September. Allied Health is also live on admissions since November.
