Placements need to be recorded properly in order to align to academic terms.
The placements that you create in NUcareers will be user the registrar to enroll students in a co-op course. Additionally, University Decision Support aligns placement data to academic terms for use in institutional research. Certain combinations of Placement Term and Placement length are invalid and will result in inaccurate mapping of the co-op placement.
Beginning in the Fall of 2017, a daily email will prompt you to reconcile any placements that we invalid based on the term and length combination.
The table below lists Placements Lengths that ARE permitted for each Term.
|Fall||6 Month||Jul - Dec|
|Fall||4 Month||Sep - Dec|
|Fall||S2FL Split||Use when paired with a Summer placement to represent the second half of a 6 month split placement|
|Spring||6 Month||Jan - Jun|
|Spring||4 Month||Jan - Apr|
|Spring||8 Month||Jan - Aug|
|Spring||SPS1 Split||Use when paired with a Summer placement to represent the first half of a 6 month split placement|
|Summer||4 Month||May - Aug|

|Summer||SPS1 Split||Use when paired with a Spring placement to represent the second half of a 6 month split placement|
|Summer||S2FL Split||Use when paired with a Fall placement to represent the first half of a 6 month split placement|
|Summer||S1 Only||May -Jun|

In many cases, moving a placement to another term will be required to properly reconcile your invalid Work Term Record. A Task has been set up for you to facilitate this reconciliation.
To begin moving a Work Term Record via a task, first GO TO the Work Term Record you want to move.
Click on the Interactions button on the Work Term Record and select Create a Task
Select the task type ‘Move WTR to Another Term’
Select the term to which you would like to move the WTR.
You can optionally choose to move the associated job posting and / or change the term type of the old term in the student’s sequence.
The Work Term Record will be transferred at the next update on the quarter hour.
