Class Permission Emails

Subject: Class Permission Emails

Dear colleagues, 

You are receiving this email because we identified you as someone who received a potentially confusing email the morning of Tuesday, June 16, around 9:05 a.m., regarding the Online Class Permission (OCP) system. The subject of the email was “Class Permission Approval Declined.”

Monday evening, the Office of Information Technology completed a major upgrade to the technology that supports the OCP system. Tuesday morning, several standard email processes ran, one of which sent the email(s) you received. The process that ran Tuesday was working correctly, but it uncovered the fact that the same process running on the older technology had been failing for months. Thus, when the process ran Tuesday morning, it sent a backlog of emails that, while factually accurate, are likely to be confusing because of their timing. 

I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this caused. We do not expect issues like this to continue. However, as always, if you have any question, concerns, or feedback, please contact the Office of the University Registrar via email at  registrar@ohio.edu or phone at 740.593.4191.
