Jenzabar One Rollout
Reformed Theological Seminary is taking a significant step forward this fall. For the past three years, RTS has been at work to improve the software solutions we use to support students. In early October, the seminary will be rolling out a new and more advanced, cohesive, and consolidated software solution for academic records and student billing: Jenzabar One.
Jenzabar One, or J1, and its portal, JICS, will replace everything that is currently done within PowerCAMPUS and the Self-Service portal, and more.
This major overhaul requires that we stop using our current registration and finance systems for a brief period to prepare for the changeover to the new system. We have tried to anticipate questions you may have and provide answers below. Please contact your local campus staff if you have a question not answered below.
