1,600 applications for degree submitted through new automated process

UAB IT has automated the application for degree process, saving hours of manual work previously done by the Office of the Registrar.

Nearly 1,600 applications have been submitted through the program for fall 2018 from the undergraduate and graduate students.

The automated application minimizes manual mistakes, maintains accurate information and allows us to respond more quickly and process the applications more quickly," said Rhonda Stevens, assistant registrar for UAB. "And we have easy access in the system to make changes autonomously."

The new application provides significant automation, replacing a paper-based workflow that touches students, advisors, department chairpersons and associate deans.

Once all approvals are in, the application programmatically enters all pertinent degree information into the appropriate Banner form, replacing previous manual work.
