Faculty and staff

The South Dakota Board of Regents will migrate our shared environment to a cloud solution. This migration is required to support our server and storage requirements. Multiple systems that are used every day will be impacted.

Beginning at 6 p.m. CST March 5, 2021, the following systems will be unavailable:

  • Banner will be unavailable until March 10. This system includes human resources, finance and student.
  • All employees: Timesheets and tax statements will be unavailable
  • Purchasing: SDezBuy will be unavailable and no purchase orders can be completed. Please plan accordingly.
  • Faculty: Grade entry for classes that end at midterm will be unavailable. These final grades are not due until March 17.
  • DegreeWorks will be unavailable until March 13. Advisors: Student information will be unavailable so advising appointments should be avoided during this time.
  • Some Cognos Reports will be impacted until March 29.
    • Banner ODS database will continue to be available for reporting; however, the data will be static and current as of the last refresh on March 4, 2021. Reports impacted have the fourth letter “O” (REGO).
    • All other reports (REGL) will be available March 10.
  • Starfish will be available for submitting midterm deficiencies.
  • NSU Mobile will be unavailable until March 10.

Several other systems will remain available and accessible for faculty, staff and students; however, data will not be updated while the Banner system is down. These systems include D2L, ImageNow, 25Live, Starfish, ExLibris Library System, SNAP and myNSU Portal.  

Thank you and please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.
