Summary of highlighted features delivered in CS 9.2 PUM Image 7: 

Admissions

  • Fluid Approvals and the Fluid User Interface provide an easier, more intuitive way for an Admissions administrative user to take action on admissions applicant requests. Along with Fluid approvals, approval pages have been created with Page Composer, allowing for  modification of the page layout. Three Fluid approval pages are delivered to support approval transactions: Defer Request, Change Program/Plan, and Withdraw Application.

  • New setup controls enable institutions to permit applicants to change their responses after having either accepted or declined an offer of admission. Institutions can set up a date or time period during which this action is permissible

Academic Advisement

  • Updates to the self-service Academic Advising Setup page include the option for real-time processing to automatically create an advisement report if one does not already exist.  This update applies to both the Classic and Fluid user interfaces.

  • Configurable access control to advisory notes provides the  ability to manage and restrict user access on self-service and administrative Advising Notes pages.  Access control is provided at each note category and can be based on user, role or primary permission list. Access can be granted to view, update, and create notes with additional super user access to the back office advising notes page.

Campus Community

  • The Fluid User Interface is updated to enable more Fluid pages for use with activity guides: IPEDS Ethnicity, Ethnic Background, Privacy Restrictions, and Biographic Details.

  • New Fluid pages enable students to view their completed agreements that were deployed to them with activity guides.

  • The Fluid Task Details page is updated to display variable data fields for Checklists. The Organization is displayed for checklist items with an Item Association of Organization.

  • Updates to the Ethnicity Setup page for Fluid self-service allow the display of ethnic groups from regulatory regions besides the US. This enables non-US institutions to utilize the Ethnic Background page.

  • Biographic fields can now be defined in FERPA Control which in turn allows students to set up privacy restrictions.

  • Enhancements to the Constituent Transaction Management (CTM) staging component and processing supports the collection of Gender identity data and other data from external sources using CTM.

Financial Aid

  • The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a standardized form that simplifies the information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid when making  informed decisions about enrolling in a school. New pages in Financial Aid Fluid Self Service support a student's ability to view their Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.

Student Records

  • Faculty Center and Milestone List Details are updated to display the preferred names of students, instructors and advisors in classic pages.

As usual, every CS PUM Image delivers a number of regulatory updates and PUM Image 7 is no different and includes:

  • A new Australia Tax File Number (TFN) verification field is added to the Person Data-Australia Record to indicate whether a TFN has been verified by HEIMS and the ATO. In support of the feature, the Population Update process is also updated with new object items.

  • Per SEVIS Release 6.33, the following fields are required and now delivered, for the OPT Employment Extend event: EIN and Supervisor Information (SupervisorLastName, SupervisorFirstName, SupervisorPhone and SupervisorEmail).

  • In accordance with SEVIS Release 6.33, validation errors are triggered for Create Student if an invalid Issue Reason is used, or when Issue Reason is Change of Status and a US Address is missing. The SEVIS Master - Employment/SOA is updated with the Extension Employer check box in the Employer Details region.

  • Victoria Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) Regulatory Updates (Australia): Regulatory updates for Admission Year 2016–2017 include 3 new columns: Overseas Equivalent (x2), Post-Secondary Award Name and Proof of Completion.
