My advice: Be very careful of the system you choose and be fully aware of
what your present systems can do!
UTC got partially down the conversion/migration path, then found that it's
existing system is more capable that it had understood and it is more
satisfctory in supporting it's academic policies than the vendor's system
and it was unwilling to change it's policies. Thus it now is partially on
a commercial system (Financial Aid and Bursar) and partially running
in-house (Admissions, Records, etc.) - on different platforms. Very
awkward to support, but we're doing it, taking inspiration from the theme
of "best of both" systems. We are now building a web interface for the
in-house student system.
