The Student Information Systems (SIS) unit maintains and evolves the University’s student information systems, which are cornerstones of the University’s long-term commitment to enhance the student experience.

SIS supports Student and Enrolment Services Division and the campus community in the collection, storage, and retrieval of student data. The unit is a partner in providing academic and administrative staff with distributed access to up-to-date information about students – information that is used to ensure student success and in academic and institutional planning. SIS also collaborates with other administrative and technology professionals to deliver real-time, 24-hour, web-based services directly to students, including admissions, registration, grades and transcripts, and fee payment. Additionally, SIS provides business analysis services to help units make processes more efficient and consistent across campus.

Training for SiRIUS Plus

To request training for SiRIUS Plus, please e-mail sis_support@usask.ca with your name, NSID, and the services on which you require training. If the access and training required is the same as other staff member(s) in your area, please identify the person or people in your e-mail request.

Please have the appropriate authority (Dean, Associate/Assistant Dean, Department Head, or Manager) send an e-mail to sis_support@usask.ca to request that access be granted to you after you have received training. Where necessary, support personnel will contact you to confirm the access you require. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you once access has been granted.

No formal training is required for SiRIUS Plus query access, SiRIUS self-service access (e.g. Advisor, Grade Entry, or Grade Approval), or for rePortal access (e.g. Administrative and Advisor reports). An overview of the query screens and rePortal use will be included with your other training, if possible.
