PeopleSoft CS – New layout for Classic Pages

During the upcoming PeopleTools upgrade, some pages within PeopleSoft CS will be given a new look and feel.

What will change? Some pages within PeopleSoft CS will have updated navigation. You can see a preview of those changes in our knowledge base. Please note, the Student Center, Faculty Center, and PeopleSoft HR are not impacted by these changes. This new layout will only affect pages within PeopleSoft CS that are primarily used by staff, and by some faculty advisors.

When will the change occur? During the PeopleTools upgrade, over the weekend of September 9, 2022.

Why is this change needed? PeopleSoft must be updated to a new version of PeopleTools in order to stay current with the latest software updates; as part of that update, PeopleSoft CS needs to adopt this new layout.

If you have any questions, you can check out our preview video or open a support ticket. In collaboration with the DAWGS group, we will be sending out some more focused communications out to groups such as admin support coordinators, advisors, etc.


PeopleSoft Maintenance

PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS) and PeopleSoft Human Resources (HR) will both be unavailable for an extended maintenance window:

  • Scheduled start: Friday, September 9, 2022 at 5:00 PM
  • Scheduled finish: Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 6:00 PM
  • Scheduled duration: 25 hours

This is necessary to install an updated version of PeopleTools.

During this maintenance students, faculty, and staff will be unable to access PeopleSoft CS/HR functions, such as student records, admissions, financial aid, academic advising, class scheduling, state employee job data, payroll, absence entry/approvals, or employee self-service.


Student Employment Scam

Beware of this student employment scam currently targeting Chico State students. Scammers are contacting students via email and text promising employment in an attempt at bank fraud. Be cautious of any job offer that requests a purchase, your bank information, or other personal information.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud is available to all Chico State employees and students. This suite of software includes Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, Illustrator, Stock, and more. You can request access to Adobe Creative Cloud in the Service Catalog.

We recommend that faculty requiring Adobe Creative Cloud software for their classes request their class roster be assigned Creative Cloud access as soon as possible. This will allow students to have access to the software more quickly. Please provide a list of students (email addresses) you would like given access.
