OIE and Sunapsis E-Forms

New for Spring 2022!

The Office of International Education is implementing electronic forms through their database management system, Sunapsis. Forms to be reviewed will be sent to departments for review and approval. OIE forms such as CPT recommendations or Program Extensions will soon be submitted via a designated e-mail address. This will be a brief introduction for graduate advisors to using forms as a “second approver.”

MyMav Training

As an advisor, you will most likely need to use MyMav, the University’s student information system. All the pertinent information about a student, including demographic data, registration, grades, financial aid, tuition and fees, and degree plan requirements is housed in MyMav. (The MyMav Tutorials for Faculty page provides guidance for new users.)

You will need to get access to areas not necessarily needed by other faculty members. To get access to the areas of MyMav necessary for advisors, your Department Chair should contact the OIT Help Desk on your behalf to request access to the screens necessary for advising. Also, make sure to attend GMAP training.
