Beginning in Spring 2018, DSPT will launch its new student information system (SIS) hosted by Populi. We are very excited to launch this new system here at DSPT. Populi designs their services for small schools such as ourselves. And, because it is cloud based, Populi is accessible wherever you have Internet access. As of November 27, 2017 the DSPT Populi site, is formally functional. DSPT Staff is now working to ready the system for full launch for the S2018 open enrollment period.
Before the close of F2017 term, all DSPT students will receive an email from Populi asking to confirm your student account. Please log in to the Populi site within one week of receiving that email.
The Knowledge Base provided by Populi is quite useful and will most likely provide you with the answers to your questions. There are both written descriptions and video tutorials. Please visit the Knowledge Base pages to begin learning about how Populi operates.
As of January 2018, DSPT will no longer use Web Advisor for faculty-student advising sessions, and all registration must be done directly in Populi. If you registered during the early registration period in November 2017, your data has been transferred to Populi. If you attempt to register in Web Advisor during the open period in January, your registrations will not be recorded in Populi. It is important for everyone to understand the basics by the time open registration begins on January 15, 2018.
With regard to tuition billing, tuition statements will be available in Populi on the Monday after late registration closes. The tuition statement will reflect charges for registered classes, fees, institutional financial aid awards and any anticipated federal financial aid. On-line payment by e-check or credit card will be available in Populi.
Meanwhile, please feel free to contact the Academic Dean with any questions or concerns about this transition. We thank you for your patience during this time.
