The Count is On, UNO Student Goes “Live” October 26th

The “go live” date for UNO (Banner) Student is just around the corner. On October 26th, NMSU will move its on-line registration system from NMSU Online to myNMSU. That means, students who pre-register for Spring 2007 classes will use the myNMSU portal. Pre-registration begins November 9th, and students aren’t the only ones who use the system, faculty will issue electronic overrides for Spring classes via Banner, which is also accessed through the myNMSU portal.

In anticipation of this move, members of the UNO Project development team hosted a series of mock registrations to solicit feedback from students and other interested parties. Solicitations were used to fine tune the system. Siiri Rogers, Interim Project Leader and UNO Project Manager for Banner Student, Banner Financial Aid, and Matrix SM, said that the feedback they received was generally positive. Students found the system to be intuitive, and they found the multiple options search for looking up classes to be especially helpful.

The next mock registration will be Thursday, October 19th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on the first floor of the Corbett Center. The mock registration takes about 15 minutes and students who take the time to test the system are automatically registered to win an IPOD or Nintendo DS. Vanessa Galloway and Karina Charley won IPODs for taking part in the first UNO Student mock registration.

“Grading will be done in Banner,” states Rogers. Faculty will post Fall 2006 grades on Banner. Training is being offered through the end of the semester for faculty who may need assistance in using the system stated Rogers. “If a faculty member is not able to attend any of the scheduled trainings,” states Rogers, “we will be hosting some open labs during the week they are entering their grades. Additionally, there will be some walk-in labs where faculty can seek assistance.” For information on these labs, select Banner Faculty Training from the options listed under Administrative Applications at http://ict.nmsu.edu/~training/registration/index.php.

For those unfamiliar with the account properties of the myNMSU portal, they may access Student Technology Help at nmsu.edu/~training/student for assistance.
