Tufts University (Tufts) is in the midst of replacing its current, mainframe-based Student Information System (SIS). Over a two year period, from June 2011 through the fall of 2013, the SIS Project team will design and implement iSIS, using PeopleSoft Campus Solutions as its technology core.
iSIS training will foster practical experience in the skills necessary to use the new Integrated Student Information System (iSIS) and will be coordinated with local student services staff, at all Tufts schools, on all three campuses. In addition to teaching PeopleSoft navigation and keystrokes, the training will incorporate any new business processes.
Classroom trainings on the Medford Campus will also be available remotely. For information about remote training, please contact Elizabeth.Murphy@Tufts.edu.
