Upgraded systems launch on April 20!

It's more than halfway through cutover, and The Upgrade is progressing as planned. Be prepared for upgraded systems to launch on Monday, April 20th.

In the first days after launch, the systems may be temporarily slow while they pull in each new user’s profile information. For some, PeopleSoft access may have changed. So, expect things to take longer, and be patient as you and your colleagues learn new navigation and processes.
