BeaverNET Upgrade

Buena Vista University engaged in a partnership with Jenzabar to upgrade our Student Information System (SIS) from the current Jenzabar CX/JX system to Jenzabar’s most recent version of SIS software called Jenzabar One (J1). During the month of October, BVU will be switching to the new J1 software. As a result, BeaverNET will be in read only mode starting Thursday evening, October 7th, 2021.

This means:

  • All data visible in BeaverNET will look and act as it did on October 7th, 2021.
  • Online payments will NOT be available. If you wish to pay on your account with a credit or debit card during this period, visit the Business Office or call them at 712-749-2041.
  • Emergency Contacts, Education Consent Records, and Vehicle Registrations are unavailable to students.
  • Grade Entry is unavailable to Faculty.

We anticipate being live in the new system by the end-of-day on Friday, October 22nd, 2021.  Until then, you may notice some data discrepancies as we bring this new system up. Please be patient during the transition time. If you have any questions, please reach out to Information Services at 712-749-2349.


BeaverNET contains resources for Buena Vista University students, faculty and staff. Resources are grouped together for your ease, and some information from the website is repeated here to make your work easier. As BeaverNET expands more information will be added and you will be notified via BVUNews and here.

The safety team continuously monitors the daily health status of students and employees through the symptoms checker. These four levels provide the BVU safety team with guidelines used for determining the level of concern when managing the spread of COVID-19 and the potential closing of Residence Halls and asking employees to work from home. For additional information, please refer to Beavers Forward on our website.
