Logging in and Navigation

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Why do I have to enter two-factor credentials to get into the Student Information System?

    Passwords alone no longer provide a sufficient degree of safety. Stronger authentication methods are needed to reduce the risk of a compromise, especially with high-value systems such as those that process or store sensitive and restricted information. Parts of StuInfo that contain sensitive data are currently protected by two-factor authentication. Two-factor was implemented for the new SIS to make sure your sensitive data is protected. Learn more here and register your credentials.

    I created a guest account in StuInfo, but it does not work for student.msu.edu. 

    Existing guest accounts StuInfo were not transferred over to SIS. On Dec. 14, 2020, you will be able to define the access you want a guest to have for the new SIS.

Academic Advising

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    I am trying to make an advising/tutoring appointment, and I do not see any time slots available. 

    If you do not see any open time slots, please contact your advisor/tutor directly. Advisors and tutors generally open their calendars two weeks ahead of time.

    As a student, does the new appointment system take into account my class schedule?  

    No, a student's class schedule is not taken into consideration when a student is looking for available appointment dates/times.

Financial Aid

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    My parent/guest received an error when they tried to access my financial aid information in the financial aid portal.

    Guest error message

    For a guest to gain access to a student’s financial aid information, the student must add their guest’s email address in both the Student Information System (SIS) at student.msu.edu and in the financial aid portal accessed via the Financial Aid tile in SIS. If a student does not also add their guest in the financial aid portal, the guest will get the above error message when trying to access the portal. The guest will have to contact their student and ask them to grant access in the financial aid portal for the same email address.

     

    I’m trying to add a guest in the financial aid portal, but it won’t let me add that information.

    Pending FERPA agreement

    Before a student can add a guest in the financial aid portal, they will first need to sign the FERPA agreement. If the status of that agreement is noted as “Pending,” it will need to be completed before students can delegate guest access.

     

    I’m trying to sign a financial aid document, but it won’t accept my APID.

    Student ID use in financial aid portal

    To successfully sign the FERPA agreement, or any other document requiring a Student ID, students must sign with their Student ID. The Student ID is a student’s APID with the “A” replaced with a “1.” For example, if your APID is “A23456789” your Student ID would be “123456789.” Over the course of this academic year, students may be required to use a Student ID or APID. Simply replace the “A” with a “1” to convert from APID to ID.

     

    I’m trying to submit some of my required documents, but the submit tab will not open.

    Document owner example

    Be sure to check the “owner” of the document. Some documents are owned by students and require the student to complete. Other documents are owned by parents (guests) and can only be completed by parents (guest). When reviewing documents that require attention, note who is listed as the owner under the “Owner” column.

Academic Advising

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the transition plan from EAB/Student Success Dashboard to the new appointment system in SIS?

    Advisors and tutors who meet with students should make sure their appointment availability in SSD ends on or before Nov. 25, 2020. The new appointment system will become available to advisors, tutors and front office support staff on Monday, Nov. 16, 2020.

    How do I get access to historical appointment data from the Student Success Dashboard, for my particular advising or tutoring unit?

    These data have been saved and are available. Please contact Patrick Beatty or Charles Jackson with your specific request.

    How can I learn how to use the new appointment system?

    Self-paced training is available for advisors and tutors in addition to Job Aids

    As an advisor or tutor, does the new appointment system stay in sync with my Outlook calendar?

    Yes, just as with the SSD, any existing appointments or blocks (i.e., busy or out-of-office times) on an advisor's or tutor's Outlook calendar will supersede any requests for appointments from the appointment system.
