Starting Monday, Feb. 22, financial aid applications for incoming University of Colorado students will be processed using the new Integrated Student Information System (ISIS). The launch initiates the biggest expansion for the new system: Financial aid staffers and anyone involved in any aspect of registration and enrollment will begin using ISIS between now and early May.
Data conversion of class information on some 95,000 students began earlier this month and will continue through early March.
On March 1, financial aid staffers will begin packaging student aid awards and sending award notifications for the 2010-11 academic year. Also on that date, students will be able to use ISIS to view their financial aid status and search the fall 2010 course catalog.
Student registration on the new system will launch with Boulder students on April 5, followed later by Colorado Springs and Denver.
Training on the new system has been ongoing this month; anyone whose duties directly involve ISIS will be contacted about signing up for training.
The new $50 million system will be rolled out in stages through the end of 2010, replacing the 20-year-old system. Student financials go live in July, followed by financial aid disbursement in August; and transcripts and end-of-term processing between September and December.
