Helpful Tips from the Registrar's Office

Faculty has not been assigned POST access in Student Information System (SIS)

Log in as soon as possible to ensure all your classes appear along with the grade roster. If you do not have a Grade Roster available, please contact your school office and ask they add POST in Schedule of Classes.

New IP grading basis for courses that carry-over both Fall and Winter term.

Grades will now be entered for the Fall enrollments using the grade value of IP.

Faculty have never logged into SIS and discover they do not have access, or know the password

Contact the IT service desk (ITS@sl.on.ca) to request security access.

Faculty using Blackboard auto grade entry receive a message indicating no grades are available to download

Ensure you have a Final Grade column assigned in BB with a green check mark and wait 20 minutes for your grades to be available in SIS.

Faculty are expecting a different grade to be available for a specific class other then what is displaying for them

Contact Records/SIS Team (SISTeam@sl.on.ca) confirm grading basis.
