Re: HomerConnect Degree Audit

HomerConnect is the new student information system at Ithaca College. This system has replaced SIS for students and is the mechanism used for registration, viewing degree audits, viewing grades, viewing class schedules, and accessing unofficial transcripts.

We are now prepared to roll out the Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning (CAPP) menu. The scheduled go live date is November 3, 2006. This is the module that replaces the degree audit menu in Degree Navigator. Students should use this tool when reviewing course needs with their adviser and checking their graduation requirements. If you see situations in CAPP that do not agree with what you believe are your program requirements, please email us at and we will look into the situation.
