Learn to Use SIS

To help you learn to use Tufts’ Student Information System (SIS), we’ve created “Quick Guides” and workflow diagrams. We’re also offering in-person and online training to any SIS user. For training related questions, contact the SIS Training and Documentation Team.


In order to accommodate the individual needs of future SIS users, the SIS Training Team offers both Training Sessions and Online Tutorials, which are available in the following three modes:

See It!
Learn by watching a view only demonstration of tasks performed.

Try It!
Interactively walk through the process following prompts and instructions.

Print It!
Generate a printed copy of the steps to complete the process.

If you have any trouble using the Online Tutorials, please review this UPK How-To Guide.

• Quick Guides: Step-by-step and easy to print; perfect for keeping at your desk. Click one of the yellow Students, blue Faculty, or brown Staff buttons below.
