Academic Cycle Setup

As you implement Series25, you'll need to prepare some things to integrate LYNX with your SIS. These pages will walk you through all the setup and configuration you should perform. Most of these steps normally only need to be taken once, not every term. But you should be prepared to revisit them when there are changes to your scheduling environment, such as new instructors, new departments, or new buildings.
