MSU is upgrading! Throughout this academic year, MSU will be phasing in functionality for students and staff in the Student Information System (SIS) at student.msu.edu.

As a student, what will this mean for you? 

Places where you complete some student activities will be shifting to the Student Information System (SIS).

Here’s what is currently available to students in SIS:

SIS is here!
  • Academic Advising and Tutoring Appointments for Undergraduate and Osteopathic Medicine Students

    You can make appointments with your advisor and/or tutor in SIS at student.msu.edu. After logging in, navigate to the “Academic Progress” tile and select Advising/Tutoring Appointments from the left navigation to start setting up a new appointment.

  • Academic Progress

    Academic Progress tile

    Under the “Academic Progress” tile, you can monitor progress on degree requirements, and undergraduate students can work with advisors to run an Academic Requirement Report, or what they may refer to as a Degree Audit. This report will help you understand your progress toward degree and make your time with an advisor productive. Also under this tile, you’ll find the graduation application for students eligible to apply.

  • Academic Records

    Academic Records tile

    Academic record information can be viewed in the “Academic Records” tile in SIS. The system displays a quick glance of course history, transfer credit, printable enrollment verification, and grades.

  • Billing and Payment Portal

    The new payment and billing portal is accessed via SIS. To view your bills, you and your guests will access the new payment portal via the “Student Accounts” tile on your SIS homepage. You will use the new payment portal to view and manage your bills and sign up for a payment plan or direct deposit. All balances will be paid in the new payment portal, but details from historical bills from summer 2021 and prior can only be viewed in StuInfo. If you have any questions regarding your bill or refunding, contact the Student Accounts Office.

  • Class Search, Enrollment, Planner and Shopping Cart

    Class Search Tile

    The new Class Search is publicly accessible at student.msu.edu/search and from the “Classes” tile when you’re logged into SIS. While logged into SIS, you can prepare for enrollment by adding classes from Class Search to your Shopping Cart. You can also use the Planner tool to produce a multi-year course plan based on your degree requirements.

  • Delegating Guest Access

    Guest access can be delegated to various parts of the new Student Information System. Visit the “My Profile” tile to view and update guest access. You can delegate access to class history, grades, account balances, billing, financial aid and more. Learn more about guest access on the Guest/Parent Access Resource page.

  • Electronic Consent and Statement of Financial Responsibility

    In order to conduct student business online, you are required to complete an electronic consent form as well as review and accept a statement of financial responsibility.

    The first time you log into SIS at student.msu.edu, you will be prompted to complete these tasks. You’ll also be asked to set additional system preferences.

  • Financial Aid Documents and Packaging

    If you receive financial aid, you will use the financial portal to view and manage aid packages, submit documents, or complete other requirements to prepare for financial aid packaging. To access the financial aid portal, visit student.msu.edu and click on the “Financial Aid” tile.

  • GradPlan (graduate students)

    GradPlan tile

    Graduate students began accessing an all new GradPlan in SIS in January 2021. The current GradPlan is limited to doctoral students, so in January, master’s students began tracking their degree requirements digitally. Students expected to graduate fall 2021 or after will begin to utilize the new platform. If you’re unsure about whether you’ll need to use GradPlan based on your degree progress, please contact your graduate advisor.

  • Holds

    Holds from StuInfo are now viewable in SIS. They will display on the “Tasks” tile. 

Please also note, as of June 2021 all newly issued Student ID cards will include a Student ID rather than an APID. Students with a Student ID card issued with an APID can convert their APID to a student ID number by simply replacing the “A” with a “1” (e.g., A23456789 -> 123456789). Students with ID cards still using an APID may be asked to provide a Student ID number, and your Student ID number will also display on the “My Profile” tile on your SIS homepage.
