We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our conversion of Family and Emergency Contacts into IC HR Cloud and will be temporarily disabling the ability to update this information in IC HR Cloud until further notice.

You can continue to view your current Family and Emergency Contacts in Parnassus under IC Employee Self-Service, Your Contacts. If you need to update your Family and Emergency Contacts, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 274-8000 or benefits@ithaca.edu.

We appreciate your patience as we continue this journey, and encourage you to visit the IC HR Cloud website frequently for additional information and updates.

As stated in our February 20, 2019 message, we will not be allowing data to flow in or out of Parnassus beginning March 6, 2019. This step is critical to the accurate migration of data from Parnassus to IC HR Cloud. Below are a few important details you should know about the “freeze”:

  • The “freeze” will last approximately 4-6 days.
  • No HR or Payroll data can be entered or updated by employees, supervisors, or HR during this time.
  • Manager Self-Service will be unavailable beginning close of business today and will remain unavailable until IC HR Cloud is live. During this time, all manager requests should be submitted through the HR Request Form
  • There is no impact on pay dates or timecard due dates. However, please note employees will not be able to begin a timecard during this time.
  • This will have no impact on financial transactions.

We appreciate your patience as we continue this journey.

As you have seen in previous announcements, Ithaca College will begin launching a new Human Resources system, Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud (HCM Cloud), during Spring 2019.  This new system is built on current best practices, and provides a modern, mobile friendly platform with icon-based navigation, that will enhance the user experience and the way we perform Human Resource transactions.  Once the implementation is complete, all HR transactions, including recruiting, will take place in HCM Cloud.

In early 2017, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees approved an upgrade to our aging Human Resources Information System (Parnassus). After thoughtful consideration, requirements gathering, and due diligence, Oracle Human Capital Management (Oracle HCM) was chosen as our new HR system. Implementation of Oracle HCM began in April of this year and with the considerable efforts of our Human Resources and Information Technology teams, we are excited to announce that we will begin transitioning many of our internal HR Self-Service transactions from Parnassus to Oracle HCM throughout the Spring 2019 semester. This transition will provide our employees with a simplified and more streamlined user experience. This message provides an overview of what will be changing and how you can stay informed to prepare for those changes. Read More...
