How can we improve ConnectCarolina?

  1. Student: Remove the automatic "hold" placed on graduate students with low hours

    As a graduate student jointly enrolled in two programs, the system has created serious problems with getting financial aid released. It places an automatic hold on my account as not being a "full-time student" even though I might have more than 12 hours because they're split between two programs.

    Also, why do you keep deleting my very serious suggestion that we admit ConnectCarolina is too problematic and go back to Student Central?

      The ConnectCarolina team reports this is expected behavior for the system; thus making this an idea for a feature request (instead of a bug, which goes through a different process). The Users Forum will review this idea with the others on this forum.

    • Student: Show all grades by program

      Using Student Central it was easy to create an "unofficial transcript" for employers that only showed grades from one course of study.

      In ConnectCarolina that is extremely difficult because a) getting to the screen that shows all your grades is difficult and b) the grades from multiple programs are interspersed.

      I'm a jointly enrolled graduate student. Many employers only want to see my law school grades, but it's difficult to weed out the courses from my second program.

      For people who do programs sequentially it is easier -- although still annoying -- to segregate out the courses. For example, I'm…

      • Bring us into the new standards of web design.

        Redesign the GUI. Why is it all based on tables? Was it done using a WYSIWYG editor? Come on, we are on HTML5. Even the HTML4 standards recommended against it, HTML5 says don't do it! We really should get a user interface designed with modern principles in mind. CSS truly does go a long way, and I feel like a redesign in this manner would also give the developers a chance to create a user interface that is user friendly, clean, and efficient. No more tables, usher in CSS. Its been around since '96 (and soon, longer than some of…

        • Staff: Recommender Affiliations Needed

          Currently applicants can list a recommender with just a title and no affiliation. Since recommenders don't always provide it in their letters, we need to collect it via the application.

          • Student: Don't show zero-credit courses as in progress

            Right now, on the "My Course History" page, all zero-credit courses, even those taken in the past, are listed as "In Progress".

            • Staff: Add PID's in the Advisee Student Center in Advisor Center.

              We have to go into Advisor Notes to find the PID. It would be great to have it displayed in the Advisee Student Center. It also displays the student's preferred name instead of the official name.

              • Staff: Need better filter in CRAS system

                In the Course Request Approval System, in order to pull up existing courses (or course requests), the only real filter for our courses is "Grad" and "Undergrad".
                It would be FAR more helpful to be able to filter out INACTIVE course numbers (if we want to just do a course change), or to filter out both INACTIVE and ACTIVE courses (in order to find a NEW request that we've started and saved, but still need to submit).

                  • Staff: Department Staff should be able to see addresses!

                    I recently had to send commencement invites to graduating seniors. The list of addresses I got from the Registrar contained some that were local, some that were in Germany and China! I needed to send to family addresses as well as local addresses, but nearly all the students had only ONE address showing in CC. Those that had more, often had inactive addresses, rather than active ones. Please give departmment staff access to ALL CURRENT addresses, as we had in SIS (and gray out or hide inactive addresses!).

                    • Student: Aesthetics

                      Make ConnectCarolina more aesthetically pleasing. I know this isn't quite the most important thing to do with the system, but making the user experience more pleasing in terms of aesthetics would reduce the frustrations of students when other facets of the system are not working. For example, making font larger, maybe adding in a picture or some more Carolina blue?

                        • keep waitlists

                          I would love if you would keep the waitlists instead of dropping them before the semester begins. It makes my job as registrar a lot more difficult by controlling enrollment, and it isn't fair to the students who really wanted to take the class and were on the list.

                              The pages we use in Academic Advising have the student's name in I think a font size of 8...while othe rinformation is larger and much simpler to read. Sounds basic but it would be a big help.

                              • Manage Grad Applicants tab, the First, Next, & Last buttons need to be added to bottom as well.

                                Right now, they are only at the top, but it would save time to have these buttons in both locations. Trust me, that little bit of time you save by not scrolling or hitting the Page-Up button will add up.
