The article explores Cunyfirst Lehman, the college’s epermit process, the Freshman Year Initiative program, and CUNY’s Enterprise Resource Planning system project. It provides an inside look at the college’s efforts to increase enrollment and retention. Listed below are several highlights.
Cunyfirst Lehman College Campus
The Lehman College campus is gearing up for CUNYfirst, the new student management system. The system will integrate data and processes across the university, from one single source. It uses a PeopleSoft/Oracle system that replaces legacy systems. Faculty, staff and students are able to use the system to pay bills, look up grades and register for classes.
CUNYfirst at Lehman offers state-of-the-art calendaring and email solutions. Students can stay connected at all times, regardless of their location. All services are available 24 hours a day, and the cost is affordable.
Lehman’s epermit process
If you’re a Lehman first-year student, you can use the ePermit to enroll in courses for your first semester. Transfer students may also take the ePermit in their first semester. You can learn more about the ePermit process by contacting the Office of the Registrar.
Lehman College has redoubled its efforts to streamline the transfer experience for incoming students. The school’s Hispanic population makes up approximately 53% of the student body, and multiple departments have worked together to implement processes and utilize technology in innovative ways.
Freshman Year Initiative program
Applying to Cornell University is not easy. In order to get in, you must score the highest possible on the SAT or ACT, earn the highest possible grades, write the most impressive essays, and engage in quality extracurricular activities. You should start your preparation for the application process well in advance.
Cornell University’s Freshman Year Initiative program includes several programs designed to help first-year students prepare for college life. One of these programs is the Pre-Collegiate Summer Scholars Program (PSSP). It includes a college achievement seminar, social activities, and more. PSSP is available to students who meet certain requirements for admission to Cornell, and selected students will be notified by mid-May. This program covers tuition, fees, and room and board.
CUNY’s Enterprise Resource Planning systems project
CUNY has a large and diverse infrastructure. Its campuses span 691 acres and are home to 294 buildings. Its capital program aims to provide safe and functional facilities that are also cost-efficient. In order to support this mission, it has implemented several IT-based solutions to meet its needs.
One solution is an Enterprise Resource Planning system. This ERP system will allow CUNY to integrate data from different campuses and streamline processes. It uses the PeopleSoft/Oracle systems and will replace existing, aging computer systems. The CUNY ERP project is ongoing and will implemented in several phases over the next five years. The university committed to ensuring that its new ERP system will help it grow, and that its operations will become more efficient.
CUNYfirst’s interface layout for visually impaired users
The CUNYfirst Portal can customized to suit the needs of individuals with low vision. The layout and style of text can changed to make the text readable, as well as images and other content. It is also possible to enlarge images up to a maximum of 1200% magnification. However, the content must still remain oriented. Users with visual impairments may not be able to use monitors at all, so the layout must be user-friendly, and should allow users to perform tasks using keyboard and mouse instead.
The low vision document provides guidelines that are inclusive of various forms of visual impairment. It includes impairments such as “color blindness” or aging, as well as those that are typically categorized as legally blind. However, the document does not include issues relevant to totally blind users or people with certain cognitive disabilities.
