Re:
Student Information Systems to Launch New Site later this Fall

 

Dear ROSI Users,

We are excited to announce that Student Information Systems (SIS) is working to replace its current SIS for Staff website with a more secure, modern, and up to date site. It’s a development that will provide users with a brand-new experience thanks to its new design, accessible interface, and extended search results and accessibility features.

You will notice that we are moving the SIS website to SharePoint. This will allow us to share more information than we can in the current public website. You will need to use your UTORid and password to access the site.

Since spring 2020, Student Information Systems has worked on enhancing content currency, web structure, security, and design to provide a better user experience.

The new SIS SharePoint site is scheduled to launch later this fall.

Learn more about this project in this article.
