Advising Resources: WebSIS

WebSIS is MIT's Online Student Information System for students, faculty, and administrators.

As an advisor, WebSIS grants you access to your advisees' academic records, including the Online Freshman Advising Folder and more. It also provides links to the academic calendar, the integrated listing of subject offerings, and to general MIT academic and financial information.

Because WebSIS provides access to students' official academic records, access privileges are strictly controlled and users are authenticated via MIT web certificates or kerberos login. See MIT's Student Information Policy for complete information. If you do not have MIT certificates installed, please follow the instructions provided on the IS&T website to obtain them. Certificates cannot be transferred from one computer to another. You must obtain your certificates through each web browser and on each computer that you intend to use to look up your students' information.

Advisee records are viewable from the Students' Records for Advisors page of WebSIS (accessible from the For Advisors and Departmental Administrators section).

For more information on access to student records, please see
