Estimated time for using this is unknown. Degree auditing at the graduate level is still an unknown. • Use of CAND courses will still be used to indicate degree candidacy. Students will not sign themselves up for this course. Departments will provide the Graduate School with lists and they will register the student.
Fast Facts – Misc • When an incomplete grade is replaced with a completion grade, the completion grade will be recorded in the original semester rather than when the student completed the work. • There will be no more wait listing.
What changes will I see? The amount of change you will see will depend on what your duties are? If you work mainly in the GSDB and ApplyYourself, the changes you will experience, will have more to do with the new terms codes, majors, etc. If you have extended duties, such as schedule deputy, advising students, you will see more extensive changes. If the duty/task currently resides in the mainframe it will change.
Training • Still in development • Faculty – Mostly online short courses. Help pages for SSB. I.E. Look ups, Print class rosters, submitting grades. • Expect sometime in June and/or after go-live • Advisors – some advisors will use SSB and some will use INB. • Those using SSB will have mainly online short courses • Those using INB will have classroom training • Expect in June and after go-live • Graduate Contacts – still trying to figure out where they fit. • Presentation to PACADA - https://www.purdue.edu/onepurdue/resources/documents/pacada_presentation-020508.shtml • Online Banner navigation available May/June
