Users, including instructors, departmental staff, and students, will not be able to access SIS during this period. The upgraded version will be available starting Monday, July 8 at 8:00a.m.

SIS-dependent systems, such as DARS, Course Search and Enroll app and CashNet will also be unavailable or not updated during this outage. Class rosters in Canvas and WiscList Classlist will not be updated during the outage, and thus will reflect class enrollments as of Friday, June 28.
