For Department Heads: SIS update #20
This edition of the SIS Update is devoted to a single topic that requires some explanation. Thanks for your patience in reading it:
New infrastructure will support reporting
As we continue through the process of implementing the new Student Information System (SIS), we have achieved a complex and interrelated set of goals -- we have now used the new SIS to admit an entering class of students, create a schedule of classes for a term, register returning and new students in classes, make textbook information available to students, distribute financial aid, issue bills, and create advisement reports, class schedules and class rosters. Later this fall we will gather grade information from faculty and issue the first set of grade reports.

Registrar's staff available to assist students with registration
If you know of students who are having difficulty getting registered for classes, please refer them to the Registrar's Office right away. Staff will assist directly or make a precise referral in order to facilitate registration. Our official enrollment count is taken Friday, September 2, so please encourage students to act now if they remain unregistered.
