UW-Madison is planning an upgrade to the latest PeopleTools version of SIS. The SIS will not be available from Friday, July 2nd, at 5:00 PM to Monday, July 5th, at 10:00 PM (CT). Users, including students, will not be able to access SIS during this period.

This outage will also affect all SIS-dependent systems and will specifically affect the following in Canvas:

  • Changes to course rosters in Canvas, such as adds and drops, will not occur during the upgrade window. This applies to both student and instructor enrollments.
  • Changes to Canvas courses, such as course additions or deletions and section additions or deletions, will not occur during the upgrade window. 
  • No final grades (from Canvas or otherwise) will be able to be submitted to Faculty Center during the SIS upgrade window. Canvas tools such as Gradebook, Assignments, Modules, Quizzes, and Discussions will all function as they normally do.

If you have any questions or concerns around the SIS upgrade, please contact the DoIT Help Desk.
