How Does This Benefit You?

    • If you have academic-related concerns, reach out to your academic advisor for guidance.
  1. Handle Fee Payments in Advance:
    • To avoid any account holds, make sure to settle your fees before the shutdown.
    • Payments received during the upgrade will be processed once the system is back.

What’s Unavailable:

  • Aurora document ordering.
