Go-Live 4

SIS Update: Go-Live 4 is Today!

Sent: Feb. 2, 2017

Dear Campus Community,

Today, we reach another milestone in the implementation of Berkeley’s new Student Information Systems (SIS). This is the fourth of seven scheduled “Go-Lives” and the last of the more internally-focused Go-Lives for the project.

Beginning at the end of March, Berkeley will be rolling out new SIS functionality that will touch almost everyone on campus. By September 2016, SIS will include functionality in many areas of university life, including student recruitment, admissions, billing, registration, enrollment, financial aid, student records, and academic advising. Many of these new systems will live in CalCentral. For the latest information on the upcoming changes, please visit the SIS website at sis-project.berkeley.edu.

Thanks to the new SIS functionality from this Go-Live, UC Berkeley fall 2016 admitted undergraduate students will use CalCentral to process their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) and receive campus onboarding messages and checklists; Undergraduate Admissions staff will use SIS to admit the new cohort of fall 2016 freshmen; Financial Aid and Scholarships Office (FASO) staff will access 2016-17 awarding cycle functionality in SIS; and more. In addition, due to the flexibility the new SIS provides, a limited number of high-achieving and high-potential undergraduate students will now be admitted in mid-February, giving them more time to explore the option of becoming Berkeley students.

Visit the following SIS web links for more information:

Working together, we will enhance UC Berkeley’s student experience by delivering improved access to student information and will continue to move toward a university environment that is more transformational and less transactional.

Please join us in celebrating this critical milestone for our campus.
