PeopleSoft Training Requirements


Staff who will process transactions for employees or students in PeopleSoft are required to complete system training before they will be granted access to either PeopleSoft HRMS or PeopleSoft Student Administration (SA). Training requirements are based on the user's functional role in PeopleSoft (HR Administration, Student Records, Graduate Admissions, Graduate Financial Support [GFS], etc.). Training materials for the PeopleSoft system are available via the Online Learning Player. These modules are NOT integrated with STARS, but should be accessed directly via the web.

Required training modules & completion certificates

All new users must first complete the PeopleSoft Concepts & Compliance training module via the Online Learning Player before being granted access to the PeopleSoft system. Additional training requirements vary depending upon what function(s) you will perform in PeopleSoft. See the complete list of training requirements below and take the training required for your functional role. See Online Learning Player Support for tips on running the training modules.

Note: PeopleSoft training is NOT currently integrated with the STARS training registration system. You must print, sign, and fax/email the appropriate Certificate of Completion in order to verify training module completion.
