u.achieve is the new name for the latest version of DARS, the DARwin degree audit and transfer articulation system. It enables HSU to build and maintain degree requirements and course equivalency information, and to provide students and advisors with an easy-to-read progress report that allows for "what-if" planning, creating a clear picture of the degree requirements necessary for graduation. The readiness assessment will be performed as part of a multi-campus SCU initiative with assistance from CollegeSource, the provider of the DARwin and u.achieve systems, and will help prepare us for the process of upgradingo to u.achieve in 2014-15. This assessment will take into consideration our current configuration, PeopleSoft interfaces, security requirements, and additional CollegeSource components such as the Interactive Audit tool.
3/25/2014: We are moving forward with the server and database build-outs for the development environment that will house the current DARS installation. Processing of remote access documentation for College Sources resources is in progress. Both tasks should be completed in early April, at which time the vendor will begin their assessment.
2/24/2014: We are continuing technical discussions with College Source to flesh out the development environment for their assessment. The vendor is now identifying the resources needed to complete the documentation to support remote access to the current DARS installation.
1/24/2014: Contracts with the vendor, College Source, have been executed and the team has been assembled. A kickoff meeting was held in late January to discuss the timeline and general logistics. Technical discussions have been initiated to architect the environments needed by the vendor to conduct their assessment of our current DARS installation; as a result, we will have a roadmap for implementing the actual upgrade in 2014/2015.
10/22/13: This project has been approved by the President and VPs as an ITS priority for 2013-14. Contracts are currently being negotiated by the Chancellor's Office and once those contracts are finalized, the project team and timeline will be assembled.
