SIS/Advisor Assign - Relationship of Student Advisor Page & Student Program/Plan Page


Understand the relationship between the Student Advisor page and the Student Program/Plan page in SIS.

While both the Student Advisor and Student Program/Plan pages display a student’s academic status, there is no link behind the scenes to update the Student Advisor page when the Student Program/Plan page is changed, and visa versa.

However, a relationship does exist between these two pages. Information must be entered on the Student Program/Plan page by the Registrar’s Office before it is available for selection on the Student Advisor page. Only data which has been entered on the Student Program/Plan page can be selected from the Student Advisor Look up prompts based on the Effective Date.

Therefore, if the student changes his/her academic program or academic plan, both the Student Program/Plan page and the Student Advisor page must be accessed and updated to keep the data synchronized. Only Office of the Registrar team members can update Student Program/Plan.

Navigate to the Student Program/Plan page using:

  • Student Records WorkCenter, Student Program/Plan


  • > Records and Enrollment > Career and Program Information > Student Program/Plan

The Student Program/Plan page looks like this:

Tip: For a complete description of the page above, see the Student Records Inquiry manual.

Note: On the Student Advisor page you must use an Effective Date greater than or equal to the ‘active’ Effective Date on the Student Program/Plan page for the correct data to be available.
