New Self-Service program begins to replace eConnect

Managing Editor Alex Ortuno

More changes from Dallas College are underway. A new website interface service is to arrive soon. Self-Service is expected to be the replacement for eConnect over a gradual period of time. With eConnect being some- thing many have grown accustomed to, questions may arise on what the replacement is. Alex Lyda, senior director of communications for Dallas College, explained what it is.

“Self-Service is a modern, user-friendly interface that will provide a variety of online services to Dallas College students, faculty and staff. Self-Service will also notify students of important updates to their accounts, such as holds. Self-Service will be available to retirees to access their W-2 statements,” Lyda said.

At press time, Self-Service is expected to launch on April 4 and is to be for students. Many of the previous functions from eConnect will be done in Self-Service.

“Many of the things that could be done in eConnect can be done via Self-Service, including student planning, searching and registering for classes, viewing class schedules, adding or dropping classes directly, and request a change to your program of study, as well as browsing the Course Catalog. The user experience, however, will be vastly improved with the new modern interface,” Lyda said.

Changing from one web interface to another may raise concerns that information may be lost. Lyda said no information will be lost.

Further information about Self-Service will be provided on video tutorials provided by the web interface.
