All users with both an active NetID and a Student Admin ID can log into the student hub of Nexus. The Faculty/Staff hub is only available to active faculty and staff.

3. Does Nexus replace Student Administration?

The Peoplesoft Student Administration system is the official system for academic records, degree audit, enrollment, and other key functions. Nexus stores its own unique data that is not found in other systems. Nexus is intended to supplement the Student Administration system, not duplicate it in any way.
4. Is this application for both undergraduate and graduate programs?
Both undergraduate and graduate programs are using Nexus. Some of the system's data analytics apply exclusively to the undergraduate population, while other are inclusive of the graduate student population. The majority of Nexus tools are applicable to all departments, students, staff, and faculty.
5. Why can't I see what my colleague sees?
