SAU is gradually replacing CAMS with Self-Service, a next-generation platform from Ellucian (Colleague). The Self-Service system encompasses several modules that allow students to plan and register for classes (Student Planning), view their financial aid (Financial Aid), pay their tuition (Student Finance), track their midterm/final grades (Grades), sign up for direct deposit of student refunds (Banking Information), and download various tax forms (Tax Information). Self-Service also displays important notifications to students, such as holds on their account. Although many of these tools were previously available through CAMS, all of these have been (or will be) redirected to Self-Service. All students are encouraged to use Self-Service to register for the Fall 2021 semester since CAMS will be eventually phased out.
