Student Information System to Extend and Span Multi-Institutional Education

What is ExpanSIS?

  • ExpanSIS is a secure, web-based student information system for multi-institution course and program management. It contains institution, course, student, enrollment, program, and revenue information.
  • Institutional partners routinely use ExpanSIS to enroll students in consortium courses, pull up class rosters, and report grades. The data are also used in program decision-making, invoicing, benchmarking, preparing funding agency reports, and conducting research projects.
  • ExpanSIS uses a secure Internet connection, and does not require special software or hardware.
