NGSS Planned System Outage

The Next Generation Student Systems (NGSS) project has scheduled a planned outage of various student information systems starting on June 17th, 2022, and lasting until June 20th, 2022.

During the planned outage, the various student records applications (including the Student Record System (SRS)) will be unavailable so student enrollment data availability will vary from system to system. 

Note: On June 21st InTouch and SRS will be retired as systems of record. More details are available on the NGSS website.

The following systems will be available during this time, but will not receive any student enrollment updates (i.e. adds/drops will not be reflected):

  • Canvas
  • CourseMatch
  • Instruction Center
  • MyWharton

Faculty Impact

This planned outage (6/17-6/20) has a number of implications for faculty. Most notably:

  • Grades cannot be submitted or changed during this period. Grade submission will be available in Instruction Center on June 22nd.
  • Student enrollment will not be synced with Canvas.

Student Impact


Undergraduate students will not be able to change their enrollments during this period. Additionally:

  • You may experience a delay in accessing grades, depending on when they are submitted.
  • Canvas access will remain unchanged.


  • Fall 2022 schedules will be released in August, as noted on MBA Inside's Course Match schedule.

  • This outage won't affect incoming student access to summer waiver preparation courses on Canvas. Use the MBA Inside Class of 2024 Welcome website to connect to these resources.

All changes will be synced on 6/21 and your access will be updated accordingly.

The NGSS schedule system outage impacts a large variety of student systems at Penn. A full list of impacted applications and services can be found on the NGSS website.
