Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need this project?

A student information system (SIS) serves as the core platform for managing data pertaining to student coursework, faculty teaching and advising, financial aid, reporting, and many other aspects of the work of the colleges. Whenever students register for classes, faculty submit grades, or administrators generate reports pertaining to students, faculty, or coursework, to name a few, they do so via the SIS.  A highly-customized version of Jenzabar CX is used by the five undergraduate colleges and it is nearing its end of life, requiring a change to another system.

What is the timeline for this project?

Please see the timeline.

Can I receive updates about the SIS project?

Yes. This website is periodically updated, and the SIS team distributes a short newsletter with a summary of major activities related to the student information system implementation. The newsletter is currently distributed via email to all project teams and most intercollegiate committees across The Claremont Colleges.

Who is involved?

The SIS implementation project is led by project owner Stig Lanesskog, CEO of The Claremont Colleges Services. He is assisted by an executive committee with senior representation from all five undergraduate colleges, KGI, and TCCS. Functional Implementation Groups, or FIGs, were created with TCC staff that have expertise in different functional and technical areas from across the seven institutions collaborating in the implementation (see table below). A faculty advisory board was also established with the assistance of Academic Deans Council to provide guidance for those aspects of the project that touch on the work of faculty.
