Over May 27-30, the statewide computer system used by community and technical colleges for registration, advising, transcripts and other purposes will be replaced with an upgraded system.
While it is anticipated that this change will be accomplished with no disruption, it's possible that the ability for users to add and drop classes, receive advising, get transcripts and use other state computing resources could be temporarily impacted in if there are unexpected difficulties.
Shoreline's computer systems, such as the college Web site, student e-mail, and labs are separate from the statewide community colleges' computer system and will not be affected in any case. However, Web registration, payment and other registration-related parts of the website could be affected.
In case there are disruptions or slowdowns after the new system is brought online, preparing for Summer and Fall quarters prior to May 27 is recommended. Continuing student registration for Summer/Fall begins May 16 and students are encouraged to register as soon as possible after that date. Users seeking other services such as advising and ordering transcripts are also encouraged to do so before May 27.
The statewide community and technical college computer project is called Lift and Shift, and more information about it can be found at http://www.cis.ctc.edu/wctc/LiftShiftProjectPage/LnS_index.htm.
