Upcoming changes to the DMACC phone system

Posted June 19, 2018

Please take note to the following upcoming changes to the DMACC phone system. These changes will affect all users at all DMACC campuses.

 

During the week of July 2nd, the following changes will be made to the DMACC dial plan.

 

  • All outgoing calls will require dialing an “8" (instead of a “9") for an outside line. This is being changed to minimize the ongoing issue of accidental/misdialed 911 calls being placed to DMACC Security as well as the local 911 dispatchers.

 

  • All internal calls will become 5 digits in length. This will require dialing “5" + the current 4-digit extension. (For example, extension 6200 will become extension 56200 internally.) This change is being made to provide future expansion opportunities in conjunction with DMACC's growing presence.

     

Additional information regarding the timeframe of these changes will be provided as it becomes available.

 

Any questions regarding these changes should be directed to the Tech Support group at x7300.

Changes Coming to DMACC’s Homepage

Posted June 19, 2018

DMACC Marketing and Public Relations will soon launch a refreshed website homepage. Dedicated to attracting and better serving prospective students, it will emphasize six targeted audience groups, reduce the size of the campus videos and reorder some of the graphic designs. The changes were implemented after listening to and acting on recommendations from current and prospective students. The top of the menu bar and the location of the myDMACC button both will not change. The refreshed homepage will launch after the July 4th holiday.

Posted June 7, 2018

​As a reminder, the College’s fiscal year ends on Saturday, June 30th.  To establish year-end financial totals and enrollment data, Banner will not be available from 2:00pm on Friday, June 29th until Sunday morning, July 1st.  All fiscal year activity must be entered into the system by 2:00pm on Friday, June 29th.  This means all course enrollments and registrations, all billings for courses and other services, and all cash receipts must be entered into Banner by that time.  The college network will not be affected but web-time entry will not be available.  All activity entered after the system is made available on Sunday will be fiscal year 2019 activity.

During the year-end closing process, the Business Office will be monitoring payments, requisitions, purchase orders, billings and cash receipts.  All billings, cash receipts, payments to vendors, requests for payment, and employee expense reports related to activities that began or were completed prior to June 30th may be recorded as fiscal year 2018 transactions by the Business Office.   Please don’t hold checks, billings, and invoices to process them as 2019 business.  As these items are received in the Business Office, they will be processed in the proper accounting period.  If you have questions about a specific transaction, please contact the Business Office.
