A new administrative computer system for Queen's
The University is implementing a new computer system for its administrative functions. Does it affect you? Read on to find out.
Many alumni will remember the ritual of standing in line waiting for their registrations to be processed manually at the start of a new academic year. The anticipation may be the same today, but old systems used to process paper forms—including admissions, registration, financial aid, course and exam scheduling, transcripts and student records–are being replaced with new online “PeopleSoft” applications.
The Queen’s University Administrative Systems Replacement (QUASR) project began in 2005, when Queen’s initiated an administrative systems review. The old, outdated system is being replaced with a new web-based system, offering integrated functionality and presenting Queen’s with the ability to implement leading practices. How will QUASR impact alumni?
• New Self-Service system - The online system known as QCARD will be replaced with PeopleSoft Student “Self-Service” in March. If you need to log into your student account to order a transcript or for any other reason, you can access Self-Service via the Queen’s Portal at www.my.queensu.ca. To log in, you will need a NetID and password. To obtain a NetID and password, if you do not have them, navigate to http://netid.queensu.ca/activate, and complete all required steps. You will need your student number and date of birth. If you cannot remember your student number, please contact the Office of the University Registrar at 613-533-2040 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm Eastern time.
• Transcripts – The University has changed the format of its official transcript to ensure consistency across Queen’s programs.
• Student Numbers – Student numbers will become eight digits instead of seven. Old seven-digit numbers will have a zero added to them as a new first digit. For example, student number 123-4567 will become 0123-4567.
