Online Graduation Evaluation: An Automated Tool (REG)

The Online Graduation Evaluation Tool is the Registrar's Office friend. This paperless, web-based, homegrown tool empowers faculty/advisors to review graduation applicants by curriculum. The automated tool, available 12 hours a day, records special instructions for the Registrar's Office staff, accepts notes specific to each graduation application, and generates exportable files to aid departments in monitoring trends over multiple terms.

In this session, we will explore ways in which automation may be used to empower departments while streamlining Registrar's Office processes.

New System: More Staff or Less (ADM)(REG)

Many schools are moving to new data management systems. In preparation for the new systems often required management and staff to work double time, processing the normal work load, adjusting the data to work in the new system and learning the new system as well.
Was extra help hired, or shared by other offices to help in this time consuming new project? After the new system was in place was the staff load adequate or were more staff needed including IT staff?
Come and share your experiences and recommendations.

Data in.. Data out.. An introductory look at the Office of Institutional Research (ADM)(IR)(REG)

The worlds of Institutional Research and Registrar are highly interdependent. Both deal with different ends of the data spectrum, but still can overlap at times. Each of these offices can benefit from the work of the other, but it is important that there is collaboration and an understanding of role that they play. This session would touch on some of the varied functions that Institutional Research offices have at institutions of higher education. It would cover some of the important federal, state and accreditation reporting functions, along with some common ad-hoc reports that they may be trying to generate. It would look at some IR best practices and some tools of the trade (both available to the public and restricted to use by the IR office).
