The Illinois Institute of Technology is in the process of migrating the current student records system to an updated, year 2000 compliant, version known as SIS PLUS. This system is currently being used by Financial Aid Office and by the Bursarís Office.
The migration will begin on Friday, October 2nd, 1998 at 8:00am and the new SIS PLUS system will be available on Friday, October 16th, 1998. This time period was chosen because it provides for the least disruption in student services. Nonetheless, there may be some delays in answering student and faculty requests during this period.
During this migration process, the Financial Aid and Bursar staff cannot enter new data or update data in the current or the new system; however, viewing the data as of 10/2/98 will be possible throughout the conversion.
What does this mean to the students?
Below are some key processes that will be affected by the student information system downtime and how the offices are handling the situation.
