Campus-Submitted Announcements

Information Technology
1.) Reminder: PeopleSoft Human Resources and Student Database offline 5-6 days in October
The Human Resources (HR) and Campus Solutions (CS) systems will be offline for 5 to 6 days in October while IT completes a database change and HR system upgrade. Exact timing of the offline period will appear in UofL Today as the October implementation approaches. The database split and HR upgrade are required by Oracle, the application’s vendor. Functionality will remain at the same level, and staff members should notice few differences resulting from the changes. The change does not affect PeopleSoft Financials.
Additional Information: PeopleSoft database to be offline
