NazNet provides faculty and staff with personal financial, budget and section information.
Access to NazNet is automatically provided for all applicants, registered students, faculty and staff. If you have questions or encounter difficulties, please contact the IT Service Desk.
Moodle is the present course management system used at Nazareth. It can be accessed from the QuickLinks menu at the top of every page on naz.edu. All Nazareth courses are automatically created in Moodle, but it is the prerogative of the instructor whether or not to utilize its features. All Nazareth students enrolled in courses are automatically enrolled in their corresponding Moodle courses. Students should contact instructors to determine if the Moodle course site is being utilized for classes.
The Colleague system, developed by Datatel, is used to manage major administrative functions across the College. Colleague runs on the Hydra server and is supported by the ITS Applications Team. Colleague includes five integrated components, providing the institution with an enterprise-wide solution: (1) Student and applicant, (2) Financial aid, (3) Finance, (4) Payroll and Human Resources, (5) Development and alumni. With Colleague's common core database, each individual or entity has only one set of data records available and as such makes data retrieval and system operation much more effective. Procedures are in place to ensure security, accessibility and the continued integrity of the administrative data.
Who needs access to Colleague?
Employees who input data, retrieve information or submit approvals for any of the following processes need to have a Colleague username and password to access the system:
- Class schedules, student inquiries, admissions applications, financial aid recording, registrations, payments, grading and transcripts
- Purchasing requests, budget lookups, vouchers
- Personnel records and payroll stipends
- Alumni and development information
Colleague users are given security access to a wealth of information about students, applicants, alumni and College employees, according to their position requirements. Users need to understand and abide by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) in regards to the release of student information.
Faculty or staff who do not need to enter data, run inquiries or reports directly from the system may use NazNet to retrieve rosters, search for classes or view vacation time balances.
Requesting a Colleague Account
Data security is one of the most critical issues associated with maintaining and supporting a college-wide administrative data solution. Not all College employees will need a Colleague account. Typically, those who maintain prospect, applicant, student, alumni, donor or employee data will need an account.
If you are new to Nazareth or have changed responsibilities, contact the IT Service Desk to request Colleague access. You will be asked to fill an Accounts Request Form, which your supervisor has to sign. then Return the Accounts Request Form to the IT Service Desk.
Logging into Colleague for the first time requires the temporary password be changed. Password must contain at least six letters and at least one number, and must be a minimum of 7 characters in length.
Please allow a minimum of 5 working days to process these requests.
