SRHelp workshops on hold

There will be no SRHelp workshops this fall. The team will use that time to focus on the development of new training opportunities and online training options. We will resume these workshops spring semester with a new PeopleSoft 9.0 focus. In the meantime, if you need specialized training for yourself or your workgroup, please do not hesitate to contact us at srhelp@umn.edu or 612-625-2803.

APLUS tutorials & job aid

Does APLUS leave you feeling overwhelmed? This page has three tutorials and one job aid to assist you. APLUS is a system that helps those who work with students advise them more effectively by capturing a lot of relevant information in one place.

When working in APLUS, you'll find:

  • A list of your advisees

  • Students' academic information (major, courses, credits, GPA, and more)

  • Alert & Warning indicators

  • A record of contacts with students and a place for notes

  • Interactive connection with Google calendar

  • Web scheduling capabilities

So what is the ASR Training Update, anyway?

The ASR Training Update is a monthly newsletter of assorted Student Records Training & Support Team initiatives, general updates, tips & tricks, and other matters that may interest you.

You can expect to receive this newsletter the third week of each month. News and events will be posted to the blog on a rolling basis, so make sure to check back occasionally for the most up-to-date information. All previous newsletter information will remain on the blog page; it's easy to go back and find what you're looking for.

Student Administration Key Contacts, please forward this newsletter to staff members in your unit. If you know of someone who wants to be added to this listserv, please email Kess Knight at knigh161@umn.edu.

The University of Minnesota system is upgrading PeopleSoft--its essential human resources (HRMS), student service, and financial systems--and re-examining related business processes to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness. The name of this effort is the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program (ESUP). While the changes to PeopleSoft and associated processes won't take effect until late 2014, there are several ways you can be information and stay engaged with the work of ESUP now:

  • upgrade.umn.edu: a news blog maintained by ESUP containing news, updates, videos, and indepth stories on all of ESUP.

  • z.umn.edu/esupstudent: the Student work stream website. You can also join the ESUP Student update group to receive weekly emails with updates and news on progress.

  • z.umn.edu/portal: the Portal website, kept up-to-date with news and information related to the new enterprise portal--the new front door to PeopleSoft tools and resources

  • Student Records Town Hall meetings: the Student Records work group has regular in-person meetings to discuss progress and seek feedback on their work.
