Last month, representatives from the Registrar’s office conducted several high-level training sessions focusing on the two major systems being implemented as part of the OneCarolina project. Those systems, Internet Native Banner (INB) and Self Service Carolina, are being rolled out in phases, the first of which was this summer’s Admissions launch.
While Self Service Carolina will eventually be open to all students, faculty, and staff, INB functions strictly behind-the-scenes. In fact, it’s already being rolled out to replace USC’s decades-old legacy systems used by staff to do day-to-day business.
Attending the training sessions were Authorized Registrar Liaisons (ARL). ARLs are university employees authorized to act on behalf of the University Registrar to view student data and conduct student transactions. The group was made up of assistant and associate deans, regional and senior campus registration officials, college advisement coordinators, and department coordinators.
While these initial sessions focused on primarily on things like registering for courses and adding classes, much more is lined up for the coming months, including even more student records and registration training for faculty and staff, in addition to financial aid training beginning in early 2013.
