MySJSU Unavailable During Upgrade Fri, 14 Feb 2014 23:12:25 +0000 MySJSU (PeopleSoft HCM) Upgrade Schedule

Over the weekend of February 21—24, we will be updating our MySJSU (PeopleSoft HCM) database to a newer version of PeopleTools (from 8.51.08 to 8.53.02). We expect MySJSU to be unavailable from 6 pm Friday until 6 am Monday morning. When you log in Monday morning, you will notice that the system looks very different.

Upgrade Enhancements

The upgrade includes the new Tangerine style sheet, which will have a brighter, sleeker look, with visual improvements made to grids. All headers and pages will be affected by the change. Please note that your local documentation may need to be updated to reflect these new changes.

Upgrade FAQ

  1. Do I need to re-learn how to use PeopleSoft?
    No. While the look and feel of Tangerine is different, the only major changes to the pages are behind the scenes. While the screens you’re used to may look unfamiliar, everything should be in the same place. If you notice that something is markedly different from what you’re accustomed to, please contact the IT Help Desk at 408-924-1530 or
  2. Will student pages change?
    Self service pages will not change. Students may notice a slight delay when first logging in as their student center applies the old style sheet. They will also see the new light blue header at the top of their pages. The pages themselves will remain the same.
  3. Why was this change implemented?
    Remaining on current versions of PeopleTools ensures PeopleSoft will continue to run smoothly and allows for future improvements as they are developed.
  4. When will official documentation (user guides) be updated?
    We are working to update screenshots in our current documentation. The updated documents will be posted to MySJSU as they are completed.
  5. What web browsers work with the new version?
    For a complete list, visit PeopleSoft Certified Browsers.

Before & After Screenshots

Below, you can see a few screenshots that show the difference between the old version and the new.

Spring ’14 Payments Due Feb 15 Fri, 07 Feb 2014 21:35:57 +0000 Check Your Account

Please log into MySJSU and verify that you do not have an outstanding balance.

Payment Due Date

Our next Spring 2014 payment due date is Saturday, February 15. If you have a balance due (and you do not have a fee deferral), failure to meet the payment deadline will result in your being dropped from your classes.

Financial Aid Deferrals

If you see that you have a Financial Aid fee deferral for the Spring semester (in the right margin when signed in to your MySJSU Student Center), you do not have to pay your registration fees at this time and your classes are safe.


For more information, visit the Bursar’s Office. You can contact them at or 408-924-1601 if you have any questions.
