1. LionPATH has moved into a new phase.
It is now in the development and maintenance phase with functional home offices taking over support and process functions. For example, the Registrar’s Office is now responsible for answering questions and troubleshooting issues for any enrollment, class scheduling, grading, graduation, or students records issues, etc.
2. New Student User Interface
After receiving student input, University leaders requested that LionPATH develop an improved user interface for students. A small population of students (including World Campus, campus, graduate, undergraduates, and law students) are currently testing this new interface. Adobe Connect sessions were held for these students (and their advisors). Barring major issues, the new user interface will be released to all students the week following spring commencement. The New Student Orientation Office is aware of the details of the release of the new user interface. You can view the training material at the following website: http://sites.psu.edu/lionpathbetatest/help/
