Student Information System (SIS) is an information management system for education establishments, to operate and manage student data. It is an all encompassing approach by which students can be registered for different courses, grading transcripts can be documented, build schedules, track attendance, and manage all student related data needs in school. Here no information can be published electronically, and is meant for internal usage only.
The Student Information Management System varies in scope, size, and capability, and is implemented in relatively small organisations that cover student record alone. Many systems can be scale to different levels of functionality, all of which will depend on the purchase of add-on modules that can be configured by home institutions to satisfy the local needs. Some of the things that dominant SIS vendors include in their products are:
- Handling admission processes
- Recording communication with students
- Student aid and financial aid processing
- Abilities to manage multiple campuses, online and on-ground, in multiple countries and languages
- Human resource services
- Inventory and assets of the school
- Payroll processing of the staff involved
- Reporting to regulatory and reports for accrediting bodies, and more.
