Business Operations Creates One-Stop Shop for Scanning, Cashiering, and Mail Services
Student Life/Admissions and Enrollment Business Operations (SLAEBO) created a one-stop shop for scanning, cashiering, and mail services to increase efficiency and streamline workflow processes. Student Affairs Information Technologies (SAIT) supported the initial move-in and build-out of the new one-stop shop's business operations environment, and the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office (FASO), the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (OUA), and the Office of the Registrar (OR) are participating in this project. As part of the scanning implementation, OUA will now be completely paperless in its evaluation process of documents submitted by incoming students who have declared their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). In addition, SLAEBO's work to reconfigure Sproul Hall to better utilize space is two-thirds complete. Visit BusOps
