Completion of Student ID Change Project Highlights Summer Efforts

A major campus project replacing the old student ID numbers was completed in Summer 2004. All students (mostly seniors) whose primary ID number was their Social Security Number (SSN) were given a computer-generated student ID number. This will complete the Campus ID project begun in 2000 to eliminate the use of SSNs as the primary ID in campus computing systems.

While no major upgrades are planned for this academic year, minor upgrades are still expected for the various Banner modules. The Financial Aid system is expecting a new release in August for the Summer regulatory requirements. A Banner trainer, hired in Spring 2004, is meeting with administrative Banner users to determine their training requirements in order to develop a curriculum for a Banner user training program. Info about the Banner Student Information System and its implementation at UC Davis is available on the IET-Application Development Web site.
