The GeneSIS project team is pleased to announce that the new Student Information System (SIS) is now available to RIT students. To access the new SIS, visit infocenter.rit.edu, click the Fall 2012 Enrollment (Student Center) link, and then log in using your RIT username and password.
Once logged in, you will be taken to the Student Center, where you will find much of your important academic information, such as your current class schedule, advisors, and any holds on your account. Students will use the Student Center to enroll in classes beginning on April 24th. Your “enrollment appointment” is the first date and time when you can begin enrolling in classes. We strongly recommend that you follow the four simple steps below to ensure you are completely prepared and ready for your enrollment appointment. If you complete these steps before your enrollment appointment, enrollment will be a quick process:
- Check Your Enrollment Appointments and Holds
Log in to the new SIS and check what time your enrollment appointment is. Check for academic or financial holds—holds on your account may prevent you from enrolling. You may not be able to remove holds instantaneously, so take action to resolve them prior to your enrollment appointment.
- Search for Classes and Build Your Shopping Cart
Use the new class search to find classes. If you are unsure of the course subject code, click select subject and you can browse all RIT course subjects using the number line provided. Although there is an alphabetical search, the alphabetical codes will not be used until we make the switch to semesters. Add classes to your shopping cart and create back-up plans in case your first choices fill up. Click "Validate" to make sure you meet the requisites and don’t have any conflicts.
- Check-In and Double-Check
If you have questions about what to enroll in, check-in with your advisor, either by email or in person, to make sure you are on the right track. Then make sure to double-check your shopping cart closer to the time of your enrollment appointment to ensure no classes have closed. If a class is full you may have an opportunity to wait list the class.
- Enroll In Your Classes
When your shopping cart is all set and your enrollment appointment begins, click "enrollment shopping cart," select the appropriate term, check the box for the classes you would like to take, and click "enroll."
Important: You must log in to the new SIS to check what time your enrollment appointment begins. Depending on your enrollment appointment, you will have 1-2 weeks to use the system to fill your shopping cart prior to enrollment. Enrollment appointments were randomly generated within year level and approximately 150 students are assigned to each enrollment appointment time. Enrollment appointments have been assigned every ½ hour between 7am and 5pm. You may enroll any time after your assigned enrollment appointment.

The SIS training team has been hosting open training sessions for students over the past month to help prepare students for this transition. There are still two hands-on training sessions scheduled for April 18th & 19th where you can practice enrolling in classes. All of the training materials for students have been posted to the SIS Training website. If you have questions about the new SIS, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be monitoring these throughout the day and will respond as quickly as possible. If you experience a technical problem with the system, we ask you to report the problem here.
