The Admissions office is moving ahead with the third phase to move the office to a more paperless operation. This involves using scanning equipment along with indexing software that integrates documents with our student information system (SCT Banner). The bottom line will be cost savings and quicker turnaround times on processing applications.
We are looking to launch our live operation beginning the week of January 15th starting with graduate admissions documents. This move to document imaging will not impact what students need to do to apply but will impact the internal movement of documents between Admissions and graduate departments. We hope this will speed response times, reduce lost/misplaced documents, and provide an electronic depository for documents like transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc.
