Frequently Asked Questions

HRMS PeopleSoft FAQ

The VCCS implemented a Human Resources Management System (HRMS) in Fall 2011 to facilitate and improve workflow for major HR processes and functions performed by all VCCS colleges and the System Office, including time and leave reporting.

All full-time employees, P-14/wage and student employees must record hours worked and/or leave request in the HRMS.

HRMS is part of the PeopleSoft System NOVA currently uses for the Student Information System (SIS) and the Administrative Information System (AIS).

For more information about the HRMS please view the HRMS Video Tutorials.

NOVA Applicant Tracking System (NATS) is part of the PeopleAdmin System and is used for posting positions available at NOVA, evaluating candidates and creating and modifying Position Descriptions. NATS includes a public site and a Management Portal. For more information about NATS or to sign up for an upcoming NATS training visit Job Search and Application through NATS and the NATS Management Portal page.
