The University of Rochester will be adopting a new software solution to replace our highly complex, legacy Student Information System (SIS) in place for more than 30 years. This cloud solution will be implemented by a select team in two phases, over a 5 year period; Phase 1 will replace Student Finance, Records, Registration by July 2019 with Phase 2 replacing Admissions and Financial Aid in 2021. .
