Phase II of Merced?s Campus Academic Administrative System Underway

Initiated in March 2003, the CAAS project is a collaboration between UC Davis and UC Merced to develop UC Merced's administrative computing environment for its official opening in 2005. With the successful completion of the recruitment module and recruitment data load and conversion programs in September, work began on Phase II. Phase II focuses on a substantial effort to rebuild and setup a heavily-modified Banner Admissions module, to rewrite the data load from UCOP for Admissions, to begin training and system setup of the Financial Aid system, to begin the training for Student Accounting, and to setup the Web-based Graduate application process.
