New SIS website launched; training to begin December 13
The Student Information System (SIS) Project website has been updated and includes project goals, timeline, frequently asked questions, training schedules, news items and more. A popular feature will be the functionality charts displaying how data access will change for faculty, academic advisors and college departments.
For close to ten years the University of Northern Iowa has been considering how best to replace its aging Student Information System. This system supports the academic program by fulfilling core functional needs like course registration, grade reporting, student recordkeeping, application for enrollment processing, financial aid awarding, student billing, and degree auditing. Further, it stores data essential to academic advising, Regents reporting, international enrollment reporting, space scheduling, career services, alumni relations and other functions.
The new integrated system will enable delivery of services with extensive self-help capabilities that require staff intervention today, provide better user access to information and reporting tools, and serve as a foundation for increased integration with other systems and technology for additional improvement in the future.
Projects scheduled for roll out in 2011 include common online scholarship application, advisement reporting, class schedules, registration, class lists and grades.
Training schedule includes December 13-17 sessions
The current training schedule includes classroom sessions December 13-17. Training is also available with online self-help modules and job aids, a view/print summary of procedures in an easy to follow step-by-step format.
