The iSIS upgrade will occur from 5 p.m. Nov 19 through 5 p.m. Nov 24, during that time iSIS will be unavailable.
Why is iSIS being upgraded in the middle of the semester? The upgrade is occurring in the middle of the semester during fall break because the business-operation demand for iSIS is at its lowest when classes are not in session. No classes will be held the week of the upgrade, so the process interruption is expected to be at its lowest for the year.
The end and beginning of the semesters are unusually busy times for academic departments and administrative units as they close one semester and prepare to open another. The upgrade must be completed prior to Summer 2011 so that K-State can continue to comply with regulatory requirements.
