ISIS (Integrated Student Information System)

ISIS is a Penn State database that is used to obtain information provided by various University offices, such as Undergraduate Admissions and the Registrar's office. In addition, ISIS may be used to implement some academic advising actions.

Authorized advisers are issued a SecurID and may access ISIS through the Administrative Information Services (AIS) mainframe computer. For more information about receiving authorization to use ISIS, contact your area or campus Access and Security Representative (ASR) or the AIS Support Center at 814-863-2276.

To identify and use ISIS, see Advising Topics and Related ISIS Screens, a directory of the Registrar's ISIS screens with links to detailed directions for their use, and ISIS Advising Codes by Category.

eISIS provides authorized advisers with Web access to some ISIS data in a user-friendly format with additional functionality.

Visit the AIS website for more information about access and security.

Transition to LionPATH

Penn State is transitioning from ISIS (and eLion) to the new LionPATH student information system. To access detailed information and tutorials and begin using this system, go to the LionPATH Launch Page.

  • Advisers and students will use LionPATH spring 2016 to complete fall 2016 enrollment activities.
  • LionPATH will fully replace eLion by December 2016.

The Registrar's office provides information about LionPATH including an overview, a timeline with key dates and events related to its implementation, and details about the system's new features.

Additionally, Starfish will work with LionPATH to provide academic advising tools including advising notes, early progress reports, and online scheduling of advising appointments. A phased roll-out of Starfish capabilities will begin in May 2016 in time for New Student Orientation.
