AccessPlus: Student Web Services at ISU


AccessPlus is Iowa State University's Web- and kiosk-based front door to real-time enterprise information for students, faculty, and staff. AccessPlus provides an array of information services including student records, financial aid, and university billing. Using TouchNet's T-Serve Intelligent Gateway as our application server middleware, we are able to deliver instantaneous, secure, and accurate connectivity to those who need it. This presentation will focus on ISU's student Web services. We will showcase three recent successes: WebReg, which patterns our touch-tone registration system; Step-Inside, our unique residence hall application that allows students to choose rooms and roommates via the Web; and our Financial Aid E-award system, which has eliminated the need to print and mail award letters to returning students. Also included will be discussion of current and future projects.
