How is AAR different than IWF?

The AAR system replaced the Instructor Workload File (IWF). The purpose and functionality of the two systems (adding instructors and contact hours to courses) does not change.

In addition to performing the original functions as the IWF, AAR has features and added functionality designed to simplify the addition of instructors and contact hours to courses. New features include:

  • Automatic import of section data from the Section File/Course Scheduling System into the AAR system, reducing the need for duplicative data entry
  • Automatic import of committee assignments from the Graduate Information Management System (GIMS)
  • Warnings and Errors to alert users to potential problems
  • Ability to make corrections after the term
  • Simpler myUFL user interface
