During the upgrade: The Office of the University Registrar

The Office will remain open during the upcoming PeopleSoft upgrade, December 1–5. The Office will make every effort to service all requests during this time.

Graduation Services will continue to provide services to students and departments in a manual mode.

Scheduling requests not affecting the week of December 1–5 will be held until after the system has been restored on Dec. 8. The Office will collect all requests and hold them for processing on a priority basis once the system is available.

Any reservations received for the week of December 1 will be processed manually.

Transcript and verification requests will still be accepted through all regular means. All requests will be collected and held for processing on a priority basis once the system is available. Emergency requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Any registration activity and personal demographic changes (such as name and address updates) will still be accepted. The Office will collect all requests and hold them for processing on a priority basis once the system is available.

The Military Services Center processing will not be affected by the PeopleSoft upgrade. All services will carry on as usual.

Online services in ZipLine will be limited Nov. 26 to Dec. 8 Nov. 24 - Dec. 11
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Some of the online services you use here at the University will be unavailable Wednesday, Nov. 26 until Monday, Dec. 8, because UA will be installing a major software upgrade.

Here’s how you will be affected during that period:

• ZipLine will be available, but only in a read-only mode. You won’t be able to conduct any business in ZipLine during that period. You’ll be able to view your records and accounts, but that information will not be updated until Dec. 8. (You should process all transactions prior to Nov. 26 if you wish them to appear in the snapshot available for view during the down time.)

• Several applications will still be available during this time, including:
• Springboard will be available, as will e-mail.
• Student email – webmail
• Faculty / Staff email - Exchange

• You’ll be able to make payments at the cashier windows in Simmons Hall, but the transactions will not be updated in ZipLine until Dec. 8.

• No refunds checks will be generated during the downtime. Refunds will be retroactively calculated when the system is brought back up based on the date the paperwork was submitted at the Student Services Center or Registration Office in Simmons Hall.

• Financial Aid refund checks that would normally be generated between Nov. 26 and Dec. 8 will be generated and mailed beginning Dec. 8.

• Registration changes and posting of other charges that may impact fees will not be updated on the student account during the down time. Once ZipLine is operating again on Dec. 8, the revised information will be posted.

• Other transactions (housing charges, meal plans, transportation fees/waivers, etc.) will be held and posted/updated on Dec. 8 or as soon as the system is available.

• Once the system is available, as a precaution for the first week (Dec. 8 – 12), you should keep track of all your online transactions. So, for example, if you make a payment, simply keep a record of it.

• Training: the Student web page http://www.uakron.edu/its/learning/training/StudentV9.php provides doc and tutorials for every function students can perform. In addition – there is a two-page job aid that is a “reader’s digest” version of everything you can do.

Once the upgrade is completed, you will discover that ZipLine has more features and improved navigation. Learn more about this project.
