PeopleSoft Team Celebrates Project Accomplishments

Cal Poly Pomona?s PeopleSoft Student Administration (SA) project team recently held a Bronco Round-Up party to mark the crossover into the final phase of the project implementation process. The group celebrated many milestones accomplished thus far, including:

  • The conversion of 231,617 people with a data error rate of less than 1 percent
  • The conversion of more than 11,000 course catalog records
  • The successful test of Financial Aid Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR) loads
  • The import of official ACT scores
  • The creation of prospect data from official test scores
  • The import of applications from Mentor in PeopleSoft
  • The testing of the admissions auto evaluation process
  • The creation and review of admissions and recruiting set-up tables

Cal Poly Pomona began the planning phase for the project in October 2002, and the implementation process began in January 2003. The university?s core implementation team consists of 14 members who represent Admissions, Academic Programs, Financial Aid, Financial Services, Institutional Research & Planning, Registrar?s Office and Instructional & Information Technology.
