System Downtime: Banner Conversion July 8-9, 2013

In preparation for the launch of the BANNER enhancements, BANNER and related systems will be unavailable on July 8 and July 9. Related systems include, but are not limited to, MyPUC, PCSTAR, DegreeWorks, Internet Native BANNER, Advisor Query, Fitness Center membership payment and the electronic directory.

Blackboard courses will NOT be accessible through MyPUC. Please access your Blackboard courses via direct logon at

The newly improved BANNER and all related systems are expected to be fully functional by 7:30 a.m. on July 10, 2013.  DegreeWorks will be converted with the new codes later, as some last minute enhancements and auditing are being completed.  Once completed, DegreeWorks will be updated with the new BANNER conversion data.  Our best estimate is that the DegreeWorks conversion will take place in mid-July, when it will be unavailable for a few days while we load and test the new data.  We will provide you with more specific dates regarding DegreeWorks as soon as we know.
