Census Outage January 26

 There will be an outage of ConnectCarolina on Tuesday, Jan. 26, beginning at 5:00pm, for spring semester census activities.  Faculty, students and staff will not be able to access ConnectCarolina Student Center during this time. 

The Finance component is not affected by this outage.  However, the ePAR hire form for HR/Payroll is impacted, as are some services related to Onyen, PID and Guest ID.

You can always visit the System Status page for information about upcoming outages, browser compatibility and other technical issues.
