Please see the message below about the upcoming PeopleSoft upgrade that we have sent to BFAN, the Staff Council leader, the UBA leader(s) and department administrators. Next week, we will be sending it to CATskill and adding a note to the PeopleSoft login page. The user interface will be significantly different, and hopefully better. Also, I am looking for beta testers. You can see what it will look like on the project website:


Thanks, Susan

May 28, 2020


We are excited to announce that this July; PeopleSoft HCM will be upgraded to a new user interface that provides a more modern, mobile friendly, “app-like”, and efficient user experience. The majority of the changes are to self-service and manager self-service. However, the navigation - while the same - will be getting a facelift.  The system will be down from Thursday, July 16th at 4:30p until the morning of Monday, July 20th. A similar upgrade to the Financials system is planned for later in the fall.

We plan on hosting video meetings, trainings and updating all user guides as we roll out this upgrade. For more information about the upgrade, including sample screenshots, can be found on the website

Be sure to visit the Training and Support link for more information on our plan for training. The intent of the upgrade is to make the application more user friendly, especially for “self-service only” users (the vast majority of users).

As with other upgrades, we are looking for folks to assist with testing. Please email [log in to unmask] if you would like to be a beta tester or if you have any questions/comments or feedback.
