PeopleSoft 9.2 Upgrade
CUNYfirst is getting an updated look and feel as it moves to PeopleSoft 9.2. The new version will provide a modern, tile-based interface that you can customize by dragging and dropping tiles. The interface will also be mobile friendly and scale to fit the display of the device you use, whether it’s your phone, PC or laptop. 9.2 also provides better search capabilities to make it easier for you to find the needed function.

The PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade will take place in two phases. In Phase 1 (December 2021), the CUNYfirst Human Capital Management (HCM or HR) and Financial systems were upgraded to PeopleSoft 9.2. Phase 2 upgrades the CUNYfirst Campus Solutions (CS) system to PeopleSoft 9.2 and integrates the new Fluid user interface across CUNYfirst in Spring 2022.
