Some time is spent covering class rosters, grade rosters, and progress reports for those who also have teaching responsibilities. In this session you will learn how to view your advisee list, notify one, some, or all of your students via e-mail, look up academic information about your advisees (grades, ADA and Plan of Work, unofficial transcripts), release advising holds (equivalent of PINs in SIS), view reports, and learn about the new features students will encounter in SIS.

Faculty: General Facutly training exists either as part of the Advisor training or via online tutorials.

Administrative Staff: (Online tutorials) Campus Records Officer training is for anyone who handles student registration/record issues at the departmental or college level. Different types of Campus Records Officer training sessions will be offered, beginning with an inquiry-style session titled, "How to Find Student Data in SIS" and also "SIS Staff/Admin Training: Enrollment Tasks."
