Regrouped Pages

The site’s information has been rearranged to create a sensible network of related and linked pages that will easily guide you to the information or features you are seeking.

Clear and Intuitive Titles

By renaming some titles, user guessing has been eliminated and navigation of the site has been improved. Several functions and access points have been renamed:
• eLibrary will replace the name FERRIS
• eForms will replace the name Forms
• eFiling will replace the name Filings

Easier Navigation

The new site will feature horizontal navigation at the top of the pages and drop-down boxes when you scroll over section tabs, making information easier to locate.

Leaner and Easily Scanned Pages

The new site will not be hard on the eyes. The content of the site is easy to scan and will save users time looking for information.
