For Workday Student access requests (for 2024 Winter session onwards), please contact the ISC using the Self Service Portal and follow the prompts. Once the access request is received, your access to the Classic SIS will be best matched to what was approved for your Workday Student access.  

Non-Production and Technical SIS Access 

If you are requesting access to non-Production SIS environments and/or technical access to the Student Information System (SIS) database, please follow the steps below. If you are requesting access to non-Production SIS environments and/or technical access you are not required to fill out the SIS Access Form and Terms of Use in step 2. If you are a faculty or staff member requiring non-instructional SIS access and you have already filled out the SIS Access Form and Terms of Use, you are not required to fill out the SIS Special Access Form in this step.

    • Before submitting an access request, verify your employment status with UBC Human Resources. SIS access can only be provisioned if you have an active appointment. 
    • Approval from your Department/Unit Head is required. Update: We are now accepting email approvals if a signature cannot be obtained.
    • If you are a non-UBC employee (example: you are a contractor and to not have a UBC Employee #), additional forms are required. See step 3 for details. 
    • Keep a copy of this form for your department's records for two years after the employee has left.
  • Removing access does not require a signed form. Please email with the name of the user who no longer requires access.
Additional Forms for Non-UBC Employees

In addition to the form found in step 2, non-UBC employees are required to complete a Security and Confidentiality Agreement (SACA) form. 

There are two types of SACA forms:

  • Supplementary Agreement: generally used when there is an existing agreement between a contractor and UBC
  • Stand-Alone Agreement: generally used when there is no other agreement between an individual or organization and UBC
