Why is UK implementing Student Lifecycle Management?

Answer: The SLCM implementation is part of the IRIS Project, a much-needed effort begun in 2003 to replace UK’s aging administrative computing systems. Student Lifecycle Management will replace the functionality of SIS and will enable the University to offer more web-based services to students, streamline some processes, and improve access to information.

What will the SLCM implementation mean for students?

Answer: UK students will benefit from web-based services, including registration and viewing of the unofficial transcript, self-service opportunities such as address maintenance, and the convenience of 24/7 access.

What does the Student Statement of Obligation include?

Answer: The Student Statement of Obligation will cover the financial responsibilities related to registration and contracts with the University. Students will be responsible for becoming familiar with the Drop/Refund policy outlined in the Schedule of Classes. In agreeing to the statement, students also will acknowledge the assigned UK e-mail address as the official mechanism of communication.

If students already have e-mail accounts in other systems, will they be allowed to substitute those for assigned UK e-mail accounts?

Answer: All students must use the accounts set up by the institution to ensure privacy and security. Students may opt to forward their UK e-mail addresses to another address of their choosing, but the University will send mail directly to the official uky.edu e-mail address.

Will Student Lifecycle Management provide audit detail on student attempts to add classes and change their schedules?

Answer: Yes, SLCM does provide audit information on booking attempts.

Will UK continue to collect the student’s social security number and use it as an identifier?

Answer: The student’s social security number no longer will be used as the primary identifier. Instead, the new software will automatically assign each student an eight-digit Student Number. The University will continue to collect the SSN, but use it only when required by law or regulation (e.g., student financial aid processing).

Do student service employees need to know the assigned Student Number to access and display student information?

Answer: No. The new software allows users to search for student records easily by using name, date of birth, or SSN.

Where do employees check for stops or holds on a student’s record?

Information on stops is posted on the Student File. Employees learn how stops are managed in SLCM training. Students can check for stops when they log on to myUK.

How will priority registration for 2007 be handled?

Answer: Priority registration for Summer and Fall 2007 will occur in Student Lifecycle Management, beginning March 26. Students will actually book classes by signing on to the myUK portal.

What is myUK?

Answer: myUK is a portal or gateway that allows students and employees to sign on once and then access multiple systems or features. Sign-on requires the Active Directory ID and password.

How can students check on their Active Directory status?

Answer: The IT Customer Service Center assists students with account questions. The Customer Service Center’s Active Directory page offers helpful information.
