About the School of Continuing Education

Cornell University's School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions (SCE) serves as Cornell's gateway to lifelong learning, providing traditional and non-traditional learners alike with innovative, flexible, and accessible educational opportunities that transform lives, advance careers, and positively impact communities around the world.

Dating back to 1876, Cornell SCE designs flexible programs tailored to help individuals achieve academic, personal, and professional success. SCE was described by Cornell President Jacob Gould Schurman in his 1892 report to trustees as an "integral part of the university," and was one of the first official summer programs offered in the United States.

In partnership with Cornell schools and colleges and with eCornell, SCE offers:
  • Summer Session/Winter Session courses for credit on campus, off campus, and online
  • Precollege programs
  • Part-time study for visiting students, year-round

In addition, SCE is launching a new online part-time bachelor's degree program for non-traditional students, working closely with Cornell's Provost, the Vice Provost for External Education, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, and an advisory board of Cornell faculty members. The degree will draw heavily upon existing expertise and resources of Cornell faculty and eCornell to ensure a high-quality educational experience.

SCE students include matriculated Cornell students, as well as visiting precollege, undergraduate, and graduate students from around the world; Cornell faculty, staff, and alumni; area residents; working adults and community college graduates; military service members and veterans; incarcerated individuals; students in Indigenous communities; farmworkers, and others with diverse educational backgrounds and paths to higher education.

In Academic Year 2022-23, SCE mounted more than 400 classes and programs, enrolled, and registered more than 6,000 students.

The Opportunity

While position responsibilities vary, every member of our community is expected to foster a culture of belonging and a psychologically healthy work environment by communicating across differences; being cooperative, collaborative, open, and welcoming; showing respect, compassion, and empathy; engaging and supporting others regardless of background or perspective; speaking up when others are being excluded or treated inappropriately; and supporting work/life integration of oneself and others.

Under the general supervision of the Director of Admissions & College Registrar, the Admissions Systems Analyst is responsible for administering all aspects of the School of Continuing Education's future admissions application system Slate, by Technolutions. This includes implementation and oversight of the validity and functionality of the admissions system, ensuring integrity and validity of related data, providing ongoing training and support to users, resolving system performance concerns, managing all aspects of system changes and upgrades, serving as the point of contact for internal and external customer concerns and questions, partnering with SCE IT and Cornell IT to maintain the system and ensure compliance with related regulations, staying current with emerging developments in Slate and other admissions systems, leading projects related to the SCE admissions system, and preparing queries, data analysis, and reports as needed.

The Admissions Systems Analyst will develop queries and reports in Slate to support the various business functions of SCE ensuring continuous improvement. The Analyst will work closely with the SCE IT team to ensure that all SCE systems are communicating as necessary and to seek increased efficiency. The Analyst will participate on appropriate SCE and university committees to represent and advocate for the needs of the School of Continuing Education and its constituents.

The Admissions Systems Analyst will be involved with extensive, daily, often high-stress coordination during peak seasons, as well as extensive coordination and communication with staff and faculty in other Colleges and University offices.
