Enrollment Appointments for Spring 2018

Enrollment appointments for Twin Cities campus students were created on October 23, 2017 and posted for students on October 25, 2017. If students are admitted or readmitted for spring 2018 on or after October 23, you will need to set a manual enrollment appointment. Manual enrollment appointments are not necessary once open enrollment begins, Friday, December 8, 2017.

Staff on other campuses may check with their Office of the Registrar for enrollment appointment creation and posting dates for students on their campus.
Instructions for creating an enrollment appointment manually are available in the UPK, accessed by clicking on the “Help” link in PeopleSoft.

PCAS Updates

On September 24, several enhancements went into the Program & Curriculum Approval System (PCAS). PCAS users will notice the following changes:
  • When selecting the "Update Type," the order of the radio buttons are now reversed. The most commonly used selection, "Create a proposal affecting only future students," is now first and is set as the default selection.
  • When sub-groups and sub-lists are added to a proposal, "Display this subgroup/sublist name in the catalog" is now checked by default. Editors will need to uncheck the box if they do not want the name display in the catalog.
  • When the "Delete Proposal" button is clicked, new wording on the confirmation page provides more clarity.
  • Within Program Requirements/Step 4, the "Other requirements, if applicable" textbox character limit is increased to 4,000 characters.
