December 4, 2016

7.3 bannerStudent Information Systems released Go-Live 7.3 on Sunday, December 4. Below are some of the examples of functionality with this release:

Students

My Academics - Transfer Credit card and Transfer Credit Report

  • Students can view their Transfer Credit summary data and can access their Transfer Credit Report on the My Academics page.

My Academics - Academic Records card - Request Transcript

  • All undergraduate and graduate students (including Law) can now access links to request official transcripts and enrollment verification via the Academic Records card on their My Academics page.

 My Academics - Class Enrollment card - Berkeley Academic Guide link

  • Students can now access the Berkeley Academic Guide via a new link in the Schedule of Classes section of their Class Enrollment card.

 My Finances - Billing Summary

  • Billing Summary no longer displays the “Prior to Fall 2016” card or “Fall 2016” label. Students can access this information via the “View Transactions Prior to Fall 2016” link on their Billing Summary Details page.

Instructors

CalCentral - Final Grade Submission 

Grading opens on December 12.*Instructors will access their Fall 2016 grade rosters and submit final grades for fall semester 2016 via the My Academics tab in CalCentral.

  • Prior to December 12, we suggest that instructors: 1) go to CalCentral to confirm that they can see their courses and 2) preview the Uploading Final Grades via Spreadsheet job aid to prepare for the changes. (If an instructor's course is not visible in their CalCentral dashboard, they should contact their unit's enrollment manager for assistance.)

  • *Final Grade Submission for the Berkeley Law school starts December 5. Details will be communicated directly to impacted instructors and staff by the Law school.

Advisors

Advisor Dashboard - My Appointments

  • Under the Advisor Dashboard’s Advising Resources card, advisors can now access a new My Appointments link under the Tools section. Here, advisors can now link their bCal to the appointments tool and set up their appointment settings.

 
Student Overview - Transfer Credit card and Transfer Credit Report
  • Advisors can now access a student’s Transfer Credit summary data and Transfer Credit Report from the Student Overview page.

Student Overview - Semesters and Class Enrollment

  • Advisors can no longer view the Semesters and Class Enrollment cards directly in the Advisor Dashboard. Advisors may continue to access this information for students via the View As function.

    Important: Please note that the Academic Plan card will replace Semesters and Class Enrollment cards. However, the Academic Plan card is still under development and is expected to be released in January. This card will allow advisors to compare a student’s Multi-Year Planner courses to the actual courses they enrolled in by semester. (It enables advisors to identify when a student has altered their planned course toward graduation.)

 Advisor Dashboard - Academic Progress Report and What-If Reports

  • In addition to being able to access the Academic Progress Report and What-If Reports links from a student’s Student Overview page, advisors will now also be able to access them via the Advisor Dashboard’s Advising Resources card.
