Hi All,

At Drexel, we do the same to preserve the integrity and accuracy of all Student records (current and historical).

We do the same at Villanova, I’m afraid.

Hello,

At Messiah, we have historically created a new major code/description and then had to update all of the student curriculum records to which the new name applies. ☹

Subject: PABUG How to handle change of title for a Major in Banner

Hello,

  I'm looking for some advice on how you might handle the change in a title for a major in Banner.  If we just update STVMAJR, that's going to change for all of history and the people who graduated prior to the title change should still retain the name of the major they had at that time.

   Am I missing something?  The current method is to create a whole new major code for the new title, but then that creates a nightmare scenario when looking to do longitudinal reporting on that major, since we have to maintain a new set of A to B translation information in the system.

  FYI this isn't about a new curricula, it's truly just a title change to the major for rebranding purposes.

  Any suggestions on how to make this cleaner would be greatly appreciated.

John
