What is OneCarolina?

OneCarolina is University of South Carolina's multi-year project to modernize, streamline, and enhance academic and administrative services. This project will create an integrated digital community linking the entire university system.

Because the scope of this project covers every major aspect of university operation, implementation has been broken into modules: Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Services, Finance and Human Resources. Implementation of each module will occur on a schedule based on responsible ERP planning:

Ellucian Banner Systems

  • Admissions and Recruitment - Admissions will form the basis of the OneCarolina system, generating student records, more efficient validation processes, and tracking.
  • Financial Aid - Financial Aid will streamline the process for applying, managing, and administering financial aid.
  • Student Registration - A web-based system for accessing and maintaining student records, registration, and scheduling of classes.
  • Student AR & Enterprise Payment System (Cashiering)

PeopleSoft Systems

  • Finance - Streamlined financial operations is vital for the university. OneCarolina's PeopleSoft Finance system will provide efficient, cost-effective management of business and financial operations throughout the USC system.
  • Human Resources - OneCarolina’s HR system will provide University employment and benefits management through a secure, online portal. The HCM PeopleSoft Time/Labor and Absence Management system is scheduled to go live during summer 2021. This will replace the current ITAMS system.
