Highlights: CS Bundle #31

I have completed my review of CS Bundle #31 and I can say that this bundle was overall a light one but high on impacts.

This bundle sees new functionality being rolled out to help support our Latin American institutions along with Regs and Legs I for Financial Aid. In addition, we are continuing to see the gradual phasing out of Crystal Reports from Campus Solutions as SF has had a large number of reports adapted for BI Publisher.

This Bundle also saw increased functionality for Campus Solutions Self-Service mobile with the delivered web services supporting Enrollment, Financial Aid, and Student Financials. On a technical side, we also see some additional Row Level security options delivered as well as updates to the current User Security Replacement process.

Below please find the DocID for Functional Documentation pertaining to this Bundle.

Issue: Prerequisites Not Working

Here I present another issue that has been bothering implementations at universities with regards to enrollment.


Students are receiving a 'Prerequisites not Met' error when attempting to enroll in a class where the prerequisite class was taken in an earlier session within the same term.


The application does not currently support enrollment requisites for classes taken within the same term but different sessions.


The accepted workaround for this issue is to create an enrollment requirement group with two detail lines using an OR connector. The first line is set up as a pre-requisite and the second line as a co-requisite for the course. With this setup a student enrolled in the prerequisite course in an earlier session will be able to use that course to meet the corequisite line of the requirement and enroll in the later course.

If you wish to ensure that the prerequisite couse has already been completed earlier in the session, on the detail parameters of the co-requisite, set minimum units to 3 (or whatever the earned units for the course should be) and set the "Exclude In-Progress Credit". This will ensure that the prerequisite class taken in an earlier session will have been completed prior to enrollment in the later class.

There is an enhancement request on file requesting the ability to set up prerequisites within the same term, different sessions against the Report ID#72545000 which can be accessed from Metalink.
