IT Alert: Impact of CUNYfirst Campus Solution

As we have noted in various communications, the forthcoming mid-spring implementation of CUNYfirst Campus Solutions will have many run-on effects.  The discontinuation of our Banner system as our local authoritative data source and system of record for all student-related processing – in favor of the CUNYfirst Campus Solutions system – will of necessity be accompanied by an alignment of many IT-related processes with this new central authoritative system of record. 
 
We will continue to send specific messages to various constituencies alerting them to such impacts.  But we will share one such change more broadly, as an example. 
 
Effective with the implementation of CUNYfirst Campus Solutions:

  • For “gradcenter” Office 365 accounts, login credentials for any new student will be provisioned via CUNYfirst Campus Solutions using the student’s CUNYfirst username. Students will use their CUNYfirst credentials (username and password) to access their Office 365 accounts and passwords between Office 365 and CUNYfirst will be synced.
  • For GC network accounts, login credentials for any new student, faculty or staff will be provisioned using the individual’s CUNYfirst username. 
  • In both domains, username and password conventions for current users will remain in place for now.
 
Again, we want to underscore that many legacy processes will be changing.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we address the impact of such changes.
