For Department Heads: SIS update #13

Conversion of student records to conclude August 7 

As a reminder, SIS will be unavailable this weekend (June 24-26) to allow records conversion to continue (from legacy to the new system).  Beginning Thursday, August 4, all remaining records in the legacy system will be transferred to the new SIS and this conversion will be completed by August 7.  After August 7, all updating must occur on the new system. A detailed list of transaction codes and corresponding new SIS screens will be provided to all users to ensure they have the necessary access to make changes in the new system.

Documenting information to process graduate assistantships
The Graduate College requires verification of certain information about students in order to process their graduate assistantships.  Instructions on how to access the required information in the new system are here.  If you do not have access to the required information, Laurie Russell at the Admissions Office is available to assist you.  She can be reached at 272-2623 or laurie.russell@uni.edu.  We are working on an automated solution to meet this need which should be in place for spring term.

Students to access their own enrollment verifications
In the near future we will be adding the National Student Clearinghouse Student Center to the UNI student portal.  At this site students will be able to process their requests for enrollment verifications for loan deferments, scholarship applications, insurance discounts and other purposes.  This service will be free of charge and available 24x7.  It is anticipated this service will be launched around August 1.
