Key Project Milestones and Progress

Here's a quick summary of what's happened on the SIS project since last month's newsletter. If you have questions or would like more information about any of the following projects, please reach out to us at

Core Student Information System (SIS) Replacement

  • Participants from the Conference Room Pilot (CPR) sessions attended a scorer debrief session on May 23 and have submitted their vendor scores. 
  • UC San Diego Procurement will compile the scores to calculate the vendor with the best overall result. The SIS governance committee will then review the result and assess next steps.

Financial Aid System Replacement

  • The Student Financial Planning (SFP) project team is continuing to work on the system configuration and design. Progress is being made on the Financial Aid project requirements as well as Accounts Receivable data discussions. 
  • The project team for the Graduate Financial Support and Payments Tool (FSPT) is working on development of the application.

Curriculum Management System Selection

  • EVC Simmons has approved the committee’s recommendation for a vended system. The contract has been awarded to Leepfrog Technologies Inc. and their system, CourseLeaf. Read more about the system selection.

Student Finance
