Locating Items from DataConnect in SelfService


DataConnect was the previous system that connected students and employees to their information (payments, grades, registration, etc.) and has now been replaced with Colleague Self-Service. This page helps those who previously used DataConnect locate those items in Self-Service.

All of the items below assume you have logged into and are sitting at the home page as shown below.

Due to differing Colleague permissions among students, employees and faculty, you may or may not have the exact same tiles shown in these screenshots.

Self-Service Homepage Navigation


There are two ways to navigate within the Self-Service Interface:

  1. The tile(s) that display once you log in, shown above as Employee, Advising, Course Catalog, and Retention Alert (remember these are examples)
  2. The symbols on the left side will open into an accordion to display options.
    • House (Home) - returns you to the main page
    • Financial Building (Financial Information) - Student Finance, Financial Aid, Tax Information, and Banking Information
    • Clock/Dollar Sign (Employment) - Employee related information
    • Graduation Cap (Academics) - Academic related information and Release Information (FERPA)
    • Briefcase (Daily Work) - Advising, Faculty, Financial Management, Administrative items
