Academic Structure Rel 9.2 (D46599)


Course Overview

In this course, participants complete activities that develop their knowledge of implementing academic structure for PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions as they revise and update an academic structure through online pages and Tree Manager. Participants learn about the difference between a single and multi-institution setup and how to define and use campus and location values and facilities as they relate to scheduling and facility groupings. Participants learn how to define academic careers as well as academic programs, plans, and sub-plans and look at the rules for defining academic terms and sessions and all related dates and time periods within an academic structure.

Discussions abound about how each piece of the academic structure interacts with the others to form an interdependent system of rules and regulations that give business processes the foundation upon which they rely. Through a discussion of dynamic dates, students learn that many term and session dates affect more than one area of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. Participants look at the association between setting up and organizing PeopleSoft Tree Manager and how security can then be established for specific departmental use of the course catalog, based on this hierarchy.
