Admissions

Where the Journey Begins

Admissions is often the first impression that students have of UC Berkeley. It is critical that we have the technology to provide student services that are equal to the University’s world-class reputation. The Admissions team will work to create a responsive and streamlined system that can enrich outreach opportunities, revolutionize the way staff work with applicant data, and improve the student experience.

Advising

Making It Personal

To support Berkeley’s advising mission of providing advising from recruitment to graduation, the Advising team’s goal is to provide both students and their advisors with more streamlined, centrally located services that make sense for what you need to accomplish.

To do this, we want to talk with YOU!

We need your assistance to gather, review, and test the elements of your majors and minors. The information we gather will allow us to create and streamline business processes and workflows that best suit your departmental needs.

Cross Campus

The SIS Cross Campus team was established to bring focused attention to those functional areas of the SIS implementation that span multiple modules, involve significant policy changes, or those that require deeper analysis involving faculty and academic leadership. The team members will collaborate closely with the other functional teams exchange expertise, knowledge and, in some cases, resources in order to achieve the project goals.

Some topic areas are:

  • Concurrent Enrollment through University Extension
  • Fall Program for Freshmen
  • Summer Sessions
  • Workflow for Electronic Forms
  • Graduate and Undergraduate Student Onboarding

Data

Data When You Want It, Where You Want It

The new SIS is fueled by data. The Data Conversion, Reporting and Data Warehouse Team will make sure that vital campus data is available to students, faculty and staff when, where, and how it is needed. The team will work to achieve a seamless transition as we move to Campus Solutions, by converting essential legacy data from several disparate and aging systems, by providing robust and easy-to-use reporting tools to the university, and by delivering on the promise of "one question, one answer" when performing analyses within the Enterprise Data Warehouse using Cal Answers.

Testing

Ensuring Quality

To ensure quality and functionality the Security & Testing Team will coordinate the troubleshooting of the SIS before launching the product to campus. The team will reach out to campus partners to help develop “use cases” and and identify issues to be corrected. The testing process will also surface work flows that can be automated to save time and effort.

Transfer

The SIS Project has created an opportunity for the campus to redesign the entire transfer credit process for articulation of courses. With the power of the new system, newly matriculated students will know how their transfer work applies toward their degree requirements before student orientation. Students will be able to make well-informed decisions, with their academic advisors, on which courses to take during their first semester based on completion of appropriate prerequisites.
