CollegeSource to Discontinue Offering Micro Focus Licenses

Oct 06, 2020

uAchieve by CollegeSource

Beginning January 1st, 2021, CollegeSource will no longer be offering Micro Focus licenses for sale or renewal. The uAchieve line of products has not required this additional, third-party software since the last release of DARwin (late 2011). Products of that era are on Sustaining Support, which means we will do our best to answer functional questions, especially in the area of degree audit or TA encoding, but no longer provide patch or technical support, nor do we offer the products for sale or download.

This decision affects only a few clients, and they have been notified separately and directly by email. Those clients have been directed to purchase an appropriate license directly from the supplier, or even better, consider upgrading to a newer uAchieve release and/or a move to the CollegeSource cloud.

Clients wishing to discuss upgrades or the cloud should contact Ed Wizculis. Any questions or concerns about this policy decision may be directed to the President, Troy Holaday.

Supporting College-Wide Retention Efforts with TES
Cohort tracking of new transfer students at Bunker Hill Community College has demonstrated second semester attrition rates between 22% – 35%. Leveraging the use of TES has allowed Transfer and Enrollment Services to implement various initiatives such as transforming evaluation and advising services for transfer students with the goal of improving retention and persistence and enhancing the transfer experience for BHCC students.

uAchieve Course Matching Options- On Beyond Courses
This is a refresher session on how to find and match the courses you need in a sub-requirement, transfer articulation rule, or uAchieve table. We will cover title matching, course lists, course flags, and sub-requirement placement among other ideas for use as your encoding continues to evolve and the course DEPT/Number are not enough.

The Importance of Program Information in Transferology
Students are now able to search in Transferology for certain programs/majors offered by schools that are a part of the Transferology network. Students can view how their courses will transfer to your school, but they also need to make sure your school offers the program that they want to complete. Join this session to learn how to import a file of programs, how to edit programs, and view the program information in both Transferology and the Transferology Lab.
