Planned SOLUS outage Friday, June 10 – Monday June 13

A planned SOLUS outage will take place beginning Friday, June 10 at 5 p.m. until Monday, June 13 at 8 a.m.  

The purpose of the outage is to upgrade SOLUS from its current iteration of (Classic) to the new iteration (Fluid). Fluid is designed to be simple, intuitive, and is built with a “mobile-first” design.  

Note: This update applies only to the student self-serve components of SOLUS. It does not include administrative components. 

Fluid will provide a much-needed visual, structural, and navigational overhaul to help our users easily access important services. 

What will SOLUS look like?  

The main goal of the planned update is to enhance the user experience and provide seamless access via mobile devices. Fluid aims to address current issues with Classic SOLUS, which include a dated visual style, difficult navigation, and a cluttered interface. Additionally, the update will provide a more functional mobile and tablet experience. 

What do I need to do to prepare for the update? 

No action is required from users to prepare for this change. SOLUS will be automatically updated to Fluid when users log in on and/or after 8 a.m. on June 13, 2022.
