Compass to be Name of New Student Information System
The Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) project team has been working
to convert the current student information system, SIMS, to a new system
that will be known as Compass. The new system is a SunGard Higher Education
product that the team is implementing at Texas A&M.
The EIS web site was recently redesigned to include new information about Compass and the project, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), a description of four affiliated committees, and an expanded Help section.
The new Compass system is being launched in phases, with Admissions as
the first module set to "go live" with Compass on September 1.
Employees who will use the Admissions module are currently receiving
Compass training and will begin using the system to process new applicants
for fall 2009 enrollment. Employees who will use other Compass modules,
including Financial Aid and Records, will be notified when they are to
receive Compass accounts and training.
