ACU Futures Project - Timeline for migration of Curriculum and Student Data to new Faculty Structure

The planned timeline for the update of relevant data in Banner, to align with the new Faculty structure under the Futures project is as follows:

Monday, 9 December - relevant program codes (courses) migrated to the Education and Arts (EA), Law and Business (LB) and Health Sciences (HS) Faculty codes in the Banner program and curriculum rules. This process will not update the Faculty records for students already current in or recently admitted to these programs. This update is to the Banner rules only,

177 programs will be migrated from the existing Arts & Sciences (AS) and Education (ED) Faculties to the new EA Faculty code.
38 programs will be migrated from the existing AS Faculty to the HS Faculty code. 92 programs will be migrated from the existing Business (BU) and Law (LW) Faculties to the new LB Faculty code.

Monday, 16 December to Tuesday, 17 December – relevant units will be migrated to the new Faculty structure, with effect from the 201405 term. Relevant 2014 CRNs will be assigned to new AOU or Department codes. Systems will undertake this work manually and the updates will be based on a unit/CRN list from 1 November 2013. Any units or 2014 CRNs created since that date will be migrated at a later date. Approximately 1550 units will be assigned new Faculty codes, and 850 CRNs will be assigned new AOU codes in this process.

Friday, 20 December – current students in ‘migrating’ programs (courses) and those students admitted to ‘migrating’ programs for 2014 will have their student curriculum record updated to reflect the new Faculty code. Current students will include those students, course completing at the end of this year.
