Re:  Brief outage for ROSI, ACORN, and other student information systems, Thursday May 2


Dear ROSI users,

Please note, we need to perform brief but important maintenance to the ROSI database. To avoid conflicts with exams and the first week of classes, we have scheduled this for 10:00 to 10:15 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, May 2. The list of affected systems is below. We will post a notification for students on the ACORN landing page and social media.

We do appreciate that some instructors may need to submit grades that day. We are unable to contact all instructors and would ask departmental or divisional staff to pass on the information. To avoid having instructors being partially through work when the eMarks is taken offline at 10:00 a.m., we will be blocking fresh log ins to the system at 9:30. Instructors who have signed on before 9:30 will be able to continue their work until 10:00. No one will be able to log in to the system after 9:30 until after the maintenance is complete at 10:15.

The same arrangement will apply to the administrative interface for Degree Explorer.

Timetable Builder will remain available. Reporting staff will still be able to access the ROSI Replica database.

The following systems will be affected:

  • Accommodated Testing Services (Student and Admin)
  • Course Information System
  • Degree Explorer (Student and Admin)
  • EASI Institutional File Transfer
  • eMarks
  • Online Administrative Student Information System (OASIS) – including Absence Declaration, and the Timetable Builder and Transfer Equivalencies database administrative screens
  • ROSI
  • ROSI Express
  • ROSI Files
  • Safety Abroad Student Registry
  • Varsity Blues Registration System
  • Web services/APIs

Thank you for your patience as we make these improvements.
