UPDATE – PLEASE DISREGARD – Upcoming Smart HR Outage (from Payroll Office)


Good Morning,

Please disregard the message below.  We were just informed that the upgrade of the Peoplesoft Student Administration System will be delayed, and will NOT begin on 11/27 as previously communicated.  All Smart HR templates will remain available for processing until further notice.

Please note that due to the Thanksgiving holiday, Core-CT will be unavailable on Wednesday, 11/25 so that pay confirm processes can be run.

Have a safe and happy holiday!
