How to Increase Student Interaction This Summer With Your SIS System

SIS system students

The backbone of every school is its students. That’s why it’s important for institutions to continuously offer resources and support throughout the summer. The best way to reach your students on a level they’ll resonate with is by doing it digitally. Here are some ways your institution can increase student interaction with your SIS system. 

Keep Registration Services Open

Most students take their class schedules very seriously, especially when registering for classes. Many may take advantage of late registration periods, so it’s a good idea to make registration available during the summer. There is also the option to take summer classes at many institutions, which is a separate registration process entirely. Furthermore, it’s important to provide additional resources like counseling and advisor contact information. Many of those services are available throughout the summer, so students should have easy access to that information. 

Keep Your Students Updated

It’s typical for any SIS to include a method of displaying announcements for students, faculty, and administrators. Infrastructure changes are often made during the summer. Your school should keep everyone informed on these changes, especially if it impacts them directly. Scheduling weekly updates about policy changes and campus life is a great way to keep students informed and engaged during the summertime.

Allow Access To Additional Information

There are plenty of ambitious students at every institution who are eager to study during the summer. Keep students engaged and boost interaction by allowing professors to provide students with additional information and introductory coursework during the summer months. One of the features of a great SIS is seamless communication between students and their professors. Giving students the opportunity to communicate with their professors early on increases student interaction during the summer, in addition to introducing them to your school’s SIS.
