SIS is a core package together with some peripheral systems that offers a range of functions, which enables students and relevant staff or faculty members to keep and view academic records, look up and update personal particulars, enroll classes, check class / examination timetable, browse financial information with the University and the advisement report showing the academic progress, and so on.
