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 the Student & 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. In addition, SIS provides business analysis services to help units make their processes more efficient and consistent with others across campus.
