Upgrade to version 9.0

Joe Miner Self Service, Joe’SS, is Missouri S&T’s student system used by students, faculty and staff. Joe’SS was implemented in 2004, as Missouri S&T was the pilot UM campus for the PeopleSoft student system project. Since then we have upgraded Joe’SS to version 8.9 bringing new functionality for students, faculty and staff. It is now time for Missouri S&T to upgrade to the next version, 9.0.

Beginning at 5 pm on Friday, November 16, the Joe’SS system will be taken offline to prepare for the upgrade. During this time, the system will be unavailable for approximately three days and should be brought back online by Tuesday, November 20 at 8:00 am. The November upgrade date was chosen as it is during the fall break period when there are not as many students, faculty and staff on campus.

The upgrade to 9.0 will only bring subtle changes to end users. The same general functionality that was available in 8.9 will be available in 9.0. As the cutover happens, all existing training documents that are online on the various supporting office websites, including Admissions, Cashiers, Student Financial Assistance, International Student Affairs, as well as Registrar’s, will be updated.
