System Outage: Wed., Dec. 2

There will be a maintenance outage of the ConnectCarolina Portal on Wednesday, Dec 2, 8pm to midnight.  This means campus users will not have access to ConnectCarolina (Finance, HR, Student and related systems) and any other systems accessed through the portal during that time frame.  If you  have any questions, please contact the Help Desk at 919-962-HELP.

For details and updates on this outage, see the System Status page.

Quick Update on Legacy Systems

The transition dates have been pushed out for several Finance legacy systems—check the Legacy System Transitions page for more information.

One date that has stayed the same though is the one for ePrint. After November 30, access to ePrint will be limited to a small group of central administrative users. If you need an ePrint report after that date, you’ll need to contact the Help Desk.

Did you catch the webinar-delivered update last Friday on the Finance Legacy Systems? If not, you can find it on the Legacy Systems Transition page (scroll to the bottom of the page to find it).
