Program Navigator System Update

The Program Navigator system went live July 16, 2012.  Feel free to draft and submit new program or redesign applications. 

As with any new software installation, we expect to make some tweaks along the way. Let us know if you experience glitches or have ideas for improvement by contacting the MnSCU Helpdesk, click the Ask a Question tab, select Program Navigator.

Program Navigator/ISRS Interface
The interface with ISRS is being tested; therefore, changes made in Program Navigator may not be uploaded in ISRS for up to two weeks. Thanks for your patience as we link these independent data systems. 

Program Inventory Reports
The official Program Inventory report is not yet built; we anticipate that this work will be completed by early fall. The list of approved of programs, including attributes, is housed within the Program Navigator system; this is your official source or program inventory.
