Student Information System Replacement Project
The Student Information System serves as a backbone to the $1 billion a year academic operation here at the University of Cincinnati. As the main tool responsible for supporting all student services, UC felt it was not only time to make a change to its homegrown system, but to replace the system entirely.
Students begin to interact with the SIS the moment they become interested in UC, as prospects and applicants to the university. It becomes vital as they work towards their degree, but stays relevant even to alumni for requesting transcripts or continuing their education.
UC's primary mission is to provide its students with the best education and experience possible, whenever and whevever. In order to achieve this objective and reach our third-century goals, the time to begin this mission is now.
This process is a journey, and we would like you to come along with us. Ask questions and stay involved! Information, events, news and more are only a click away, so stay tuned as our system transforms into one that will better serve you.
► Item Type - Identifier (12 characters) that classifies an item on a student’s account. Item Types enable schools to uniquely categorize a student’s bill and/or financial aid. The determining factor for creating an item type or using an existing item type is the mapping to the General Ledger and how a breakdown occurs on a student bill.
