System upgrade planned for fall - note dates

As part of the continuing enhancements/upgrades to the myMCCKC system, Oracle has required that Campus Solutions and HR/Payroll reside in separate databases. This change requires MCC to split the two systems. During the split an upgrade will be implemented to the HR/Payroll system to a newer version of PeopleSoft.

Two timeframes have been identified for the go-live. The first is Sept. 23-26, if the split and upgrade can be completed in a weekend. If not, the second option is for Sept. 30-Oct. 7. With either option, employees and students should not be impacted for an extended period - the major affect will be seen on the HR/Payroll side. During those times, access to employee and student self-service will be restricted during the upgrade.

Access to myMCCKC, Outlook, student email and Blackboard will not be affected.

Employees and students should not see any difference in the system after the upgrade. Every effort will be made so the transition between databases is seamless. Watch your email for more information on this project.
