The Student Information System (SIS) is Washington University’s system of record for student data. It is the official record of the university.  The data in SIS is the foundation of a students’ educational record and includes details on each student’s program(s) of study. Students, faculty, advisors, and staff use SIS tools to maintain programs of study, register for classes, assign and view grades, pay bills, and maintain demographic data and address information.  

SIS user interfaces include client software and web applications designed to meet the real-time needs of specific constituent groups–Canvas, course evaluations, Workday, Habif Health and Wellness Student Portal, etc.
