Washington University Student Information System

The Student Information System (SIS) is the official system for student information at Washington University. It is what the university keeps track of. Students’ educational records are based on the information in SIS, which includes details about each student’s program(s). Students, faculty, advisers, parents, guardians, and staff use SIS tools to keep track of students’ programs of study, classes, and grades, pay bills, handle matriculations, and keep track of demographic information. SIS user interfaces include client software for administrative users and several web applications designed to meet the needs of specific constituent groups. All of these can access SIS data in real-time.

SIS connects to many of the enterprise systems at Washington University, such as Canvas, course evaluations, Workday, the Habif Health and Wellness Student Portal, and many more.

Washington University Resources for Parents

Parents are often an important part of their children’s education and personal growth at Washington University in St. Louis, especially during their time as an undergraduate.

Parents’ advice, counsel, and support can often make a big difference in how well a student does in school. Students at Washington University are encouraged to talk to their parents about problems they are having in school, in their personal lives, or with money.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that says a university can tell a student’s parents about how well they are doing in school if the student is listed as a legal dependent on the parent’s most recent federal income tax return. The university, on the other hand, is not required to do so and would rather students talk to their parents about their academic goals and progress.

Parents and students who can’t talk about school issues in a meaningful way are told to talk to the student’s academic advisor about the problem. When looking into a problem, the advisor may want to talk to the parent along with the student.

Washington University Global Education

Washington University teaches all of its students about the world and supports innovative research and risky business ventures all over the world. We give students, faculty, and staff the tools they need to make an impact on the world through international collaboration, research, and learning.

Washington University Library

The Washington University Libraries are a powerful network of academic resources. They have nine libraries (7 on the Danforth Campus, 1 on the West Campus, and 1 at the Medical School), large print and digital collections, and expert librarians whose main job is to help students and faculty find the information they need.

The John M. Olin Library is the hub of this complex network. It is a 197,000-square-foot research library with collections in the humanities, social sciences, engineering, and special collections, as well as a place to study for longer hours, reading rooms, lounges, and small-group studies. The collections in the other libraries are used by specific departments or schools.

Mission

The Washington University Libraries help people find ideas, make them, use them, keep them, and spread them. We are an interactive hub of information resources, expertise, services, and relationships that improve research and learning for a university community that is growing and changing.

Organizational Principles

Open

We are a welcoming center that encourages people to find new things and work together in order to encourage creative success and intellectual freedom. All of our programs, services, and initiatives focus on being open to everyone and easy to use.

Engaged

We work with scholars as a trusted partner and offer specialized knowledge throughout their journey. We keep important relationships with our stakeholders in order to build skills and services in the Libraries that meet the changing and growing needs of the community.

Transformative

We try to come up with new ideas and change in order to encourage creative ways to help students do well in school. We make it easier to get to resources that are important for academic work.

History

The University’s first library was built in 1907, and it was in Ridgley Hall. By 1946, the University Library had 46,000 books and was made up of Ridgley and 14 other school and departmental libraries. The Olin Library is bigger and more modern. It opened in 1962 and was redone in 2004. In the spring of 2018, the Olin Library Transformation project made new learning, research, and teaching spaces and resources.

Washington University Library Locations

The Washington University Libraries are a network of academic resources with 9 libraries (7 on the Danforth Campus, 1 on the West Campus, and 1 at the Medical School), large print and digital collections, and expert librarians whose main job is to help students and faculty find the information they need.

Washington University Research

Our faculty, students, and staff work together across disciplines and schools to create new knowledge that can be used to solve some of the most difficult problems in the world.

Mentors from the faculty and other university resources help students with their research projects. Faculty get funding for their research from the federal government, state governments, corporations, foundations, non-profit agencies, individuals, and the university itself.

Find Information

We encourage and help you with your innovative research and business ideas. We have a strong desire to turn these discoveries into knowledge, technologies, and programs that help people.

Make new information

By combining research and teaching, our professors make sure that their work is still useful. Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral student, you will have the chance to work with world-class faculty experts on research that will change the world.

At Washington University, we are dedicated to finding new ways to learn and share what we know so that we can help people and make the world a better place. Our professors are world-renowned experts in their fields, and their research has a direct effect on the St. Louis area, the rest of the country, and the rest of the world.

The only choice is to go to Washington University Portal and change the password.
