  • Access to Cornell Connect is limited individuals granted  Alumni and Alumni Non-Degreed status by Cornell University and to Johnson Graduate School students.
  • Data changes made via Cornell Connect are processed via a batch interface into the PeopleSoft system which is the data of record.  Some data elements such as name changes are processed into a report which are investigated and manually updated in PeopleSoft, other data elements are auto-loaded into PeopleSoft.
  • Data changes made into PeopleSoft are processed into the directory on a nightly basis.
  • Regarding degrees listed in the Directory:
    • Only degrees granted by Cornell University will be listed in the directory.
    • Alumni are not able to edit their degrees,  any request to change a degree should go to Tilly Garnett.
