Portal Progress

After a successful pre-registration for Fall courses, we have continued to make progress on improving the features available through the Student/Faculty portlets.

This summer, for the first time, students are able to add and drop classes through the Portal add-drop feature. Of course, students need to discuss changes with their advisors, but they don’t need to make a special trip to the Registrar’s office to deal with paperwork.

Department Chairs now have the ability to view the grades for all the courses in their departments.  If you are a Department Chair, you should see an option to “Change Semester/Instructor” on the Faculty Course Control page.  If you don’t, please let us know.

The next big project for the Portal is a version upgrade and new versions of both the Student and Faculty CRM’s.   We are working now to incorporate the Claremont Colleges local changes into the standard versions of the CRM’s in our test environment.  Testing and implementation will happen this summer.
