SIS - Obtaining New or Modifying Existing System Authorization
This document provides information on how to obtain new or modify existing SIS authorizations.
Note: If you are new to SIS, a check list of steps required to begin using SIS, including authorization, can be found at the SIS website, under 'Access' heading. Information found there is needed to help you complete the authorization form.
The authorization form and compliance form must be completed by all new users. Existing users who need to add to or remove roles, department codes, or IP restrictions from their authorizations should resubmit the authorization form only, marking the items on the form which are changing. All forms submitted are kept on file for each user and are cumulative. For example, when a user changes departments, one form should be submitted from the former department, removing all roles and department codes, and another form should be submitted by the new department for the new roles and department codes.
Once signed, keep a copy for your records, and submit the form to:
1210 W. Dayton or
fax to DoIT Security, (608) 265-0667.
DoIT Security will create a 3-Character Login ID and a password for student employees if they do not have one already. Fulltime staff will have authorization extended to their netID.
Within 7 to 10 business days, the Dean/Director and user will receive an email notification with the User ID and the roles they were granted. Changes for existing users usually take less than 5 business days.
For student employees, a second email will be sent to them containing their password, and directions on how to change the password. Users are required to login and change their password.
Updating SIS Data
If you request access to "update" data in SIS (as opposed to just viewing data), you will need to attend training for that level of access. Training information is available at https://sis.wisc.edu/learn.htm.
Once you have completed the authorization form, and attended the requisite training, you will receive an email notification that you are authorized to update that data.
Accessing SIS Outside of Standard Hours
As of January 11, 2014, only student workers will have restricted hours of access. Non-student staff should be able to access the system whenever it is operational.
Standard SIS access hours for student workers are Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. If you need access to the system outside these hours an additional SIS Extended Access form must be submitted.
