What is PeopleSoft?
PeopleSoft is NSC’s new Student Information System that will transform how and when students communicate with the College and how faculty and staff conduct the necessary business of meeting students' needs for accurate information, timely decisions, and informed choices that lead to student success.
Why is the College migrating to PeopleSoft?
The current Student Information System cannot keep pace with 21st century technology, which is necessary to meet the needs of our students. PeopleSoft will allow on-line access so that students can conduct standard student services transactions 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. By 2011, all NSHE institutions will be using PeopleSoft, allowing students to use one common ID to conduct business at other NSHE institutions.
What operations will be affected by this change?
PeopleSoft will improve and enhance all student-related business processes. The following offices will be affected: Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, Academic Advising and the Cashier.
What is the timeline?
Fall 2011 will be the very first semester that all student-related transactions will be conducted in PeopleSoft. In order to make preparations, the following schedule will be followed:
What role will Faculty and Staff play in the migration process?
While the system is very intuitive, training may be necessary for faculty and staff. The campus community will be publically notified when formal training is available. Students will find that many of the internet processes are very similar to other internet applications they currently use such as their banking transactions. However, help will be available if necessary.

How is the project being funded?
Funding for this project is from the NSHE investment pool which is not a part of the state operating budget. Originally, $10 million was awarded by the Legislature when SB192 was passed. However, that $10 million was returned to the State in Jan. 2008 as part of the Governor's efforts to reduce expenditures. In addition, the NSHE Board of Regents has approved use of the Student Technology Fee to allow institutions to offset a portion of iNtegrate project expenses.
