The Rutgers Integrated Administrative System (RIAS) is a major new project that will bring Rutgers administrative operations into the 21st Century.
What is "Administrative Computing Services"?
Administrative Computing Services is "business" computing at Rutgers University. We take care of the institution's payroll, its budgeting, its Human Resources, and so on. In the case of a university, "business" also involves getting new students admitted; getting new and current students enrolled in classes; getting term bills paid, both directly and through financial aid; getting students their term grades; providing support for deciding when a student has qualified for a degree; providing transcripts; and enlisting alumni in the support of Rutgers University.
When you pick up a schedule of classes, it came from an ACS data base. When you add or drop a course via Touch-Tone(tm) Registration, you are "talking" to the ACS mainframe. The registrar contacts ACS to extract your transcript data. If you work for Rutgers, ACS prints your paycheck. If you sell to Rutgers, we print the check that pays your invoice.
We are also into Web applications. Now, you can apply for admission to Rutgers through a web site administered by Administrative Computing. If you are a member of the faculty or staff of the university, you can update your address information or complete Faculty Survey information through one of our web sites. There is more coming. Watch for new developments!
