Notice for Students: Cleanup of WebAdvisor Accounts

The Bursar’s Office at DeSales University is currently in the process of upgrading and simplifying the on-line view for your student account statement. In order for WebAdvisor to allow you to view terms individually, there is some cleanup of certain individual’s accounts that needs to be performed.  We are attempting to perform this cleanup during the summer months.  This process may create additional line item entries, so please disregard the “Term Payment Transfer” entries on your statement.  The overall balance on your statement is correct; we hope to have the majority of the cleanup done this summer, so we appreciate your patience during this process.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 610-282-1100n ext. 1343 or 1376.

File Server Folder Change

On Tuesday night, 6/23, into Wednesday morning, IT staff will be performing maintenance on the file server, CVFS05.  In particular, we will be moving the StaffDept folder to a new hard drive with additional storage space.  Please close all open files and log off your computer on Tuesday before leaving work for the day.  We will perform a final directory synchronization on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday morning, we will point the Share to the new location.  Once the change is made, and you logon to your computer, your files will continue to be accessible as they have always been.  Again, this will only affect folders located under L:\StaffDept.
