Things to Think About

When beginning to use Grad SIS, it is important to take the following things into consideration:

  • Grad SIS has various roles involved in the processing of applications, some of which are optional. The system is designed to be flexible enough to handle the diversity of ways in which different departments handle applicant files. Only the Graduate Staff and Graduate Advisor are required roles at the departmental level.
  • It is important to become familiar with how financial offers work within GradSIS. See more information about how to make and modify financial offers.
  • Grad SIS is designed to be a paperless system. Every effort has been made to allow associated documents to be submitted electronically into the system. However, certain documents (transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc.) will still often be submitted in paper form. As files are processed by graduate staff, any paper documents associated with the file should be scanned and attached to the relevant portion of the application. See more information on scanning documents and appending them to applicant files.
  • Grad SIS makes extensive use of maintenance and validation tables, some of which are set up at the departmental level, some of which are set up at the college or graduate division level. Please review a list of maintenance tasks and responsibilities.
