  • SharePoint 2013 Upgrade Project
    • 7/24/2015 - All site migrations of SharePoint 2007 to Sharepoint 2013 have been completed. Thank all who participated in assisting ITS in our efforts to do so. ITS will now begin the process of decommissioning the SP07 service. As a result, all sites in the SP07 environment are currently in read-in only mode but will remain accessible through August 31, 2015.

      If you had a site on SharePoint 2007 and you feel it necessary, please take this time to review your SP07 content and notify the ITS Help Desk as soon as possible if anything has not been migrated. On August 31, 2015, you will no longer have access to your sites on SP07.

      SharePoint 2007 will be retired on August 31, 2015.

      The project will continue through the fall semester 2015 with SharePoint 2010 migrations.For current SharePoint 2010 site owners, please send an email to to begin planning your migration.
