MyU and PeopleSoft outage

On Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2, an upgrade to the PeopleSoft development platform, PeopleTools, will occur. While the upgrade work is underway, MyU and PeopleSoft applications will be unavailable. 

Specific impacts to note:
  • PeopleSoft (and dependent applications)
  • APAS
  • Grad Planner
  • MyU (and dependent applications)
Aside from downtime during the weekend, no significant impact for end users is expected. No action is required as a result of this upgrade. Access to Moodle courses and University email will not be affected.

The upgrade ensures that our PeopleSoft systems remain stable and secure, and we retain vendor support. We encourage you to mark your calendars for the upgrade weekend so that you can plan around the service outage accordingly. During the weekend of April 1-2, updates will be available on the University’s Service Status page.

Registration times available

Depending on your campus, registration for summer 2017 and fall 2017 is underway or beginning soon. Students can find their specific registration time by logging into MyU and selecting the Academics tab, then the Registration sub-tab. Twin Cities students will see their registration times there starting March 24. The registration appointment time table is also available on the One Stop website.

Update classes before registration begins

Collaborative Class Scheduling (CCS) users should make sure classes offered for summer 2017 and fall 2017 have correct dates/times, grade basis, and credit values entered prior to registration beginning.

On the Twin Cities’ campus, registration for summer begins April 11. CCS is currently open for summer 2017 and available for schedulers to make updates. Registration for fall begins April 13. CCS will reopen for emergent changes on April 1. Other system campus staff may check with their Registrar’s office for details.
