Features and Benefits: 

Colleague is used to extract, transform and load data from the enterprise resource planning tool into MS SQL Server. The Colleague database serves as the primary system of record for administrative information systems. Administrative Information Services applies precise business logic, transform and publish this data to widespread applications (e.g., CMS, One Card, Moodle, Active Directory and Advancement Reporting.)

Getting Started: 

The Colleague Department Security Manager must first complete the College Security Request Form

 

Colleague Account

Employees who need to interact with the Ellucian Colleague system, either directly via the Colleague user interface or though various reporting tools supplied by Administrative Information Systems, require a Colleague account.

Audience: 
Staff
Features and Benefits: 

For security purposes, your Colleage account is a completely separate account from your Amherst account. In many cases the username will be the same, but unless you synchronize the passwords manually (NOT recommended), your Colleage account will never have the same password as your Amherst account.

Requirements: 

Colleague accounts are made available to employees whose positions require access to Colleague either using the UI or via a database query.

Getting Started: 

Access to Colleague is controlled by Department Security Managers in administrative offices. To submit a request for access to Colleague, you must complete the Colleague Security Request Form.
