OAKS and Banner Classlist Update

By Monica Lavin
Posted on 2 May 2014 | 6:00 am

IT has been actively working to correct the synchronization issues between Banner and OAKS cross-listed courses (combining multiple sections of the same course into one OAKS shell). Thorough testing between Information Technology and the Registrar’s Office yielded successful results between Banner and OAKS Version 10.3. OAKS will be upgraded to Version 10.3 on May 9th. For more information about the upgrade, please visit: http://blogs.cofc.edu/it/2014/05/01/oaks-scheduled-maintenance/.

We highly encourage faculty to submit your cross-listing requests before any type of student work is completed in the course. As you know, ALL STUDENT work/grades will be LOST during the cross-listing process. Cross-listing requests can take up to 3 business days to process so please plan accordingly. To request that a course be cross-listed visit http://goo.gl/nFSmQy.

If you have any questions, please contact the Information Technology Helpdesk at (843) 953-3375 or by emailing helpdesk@cofc.edu.
