Graduate Admissions

  • The Graduate Division has implemented Slate (a 3rd party web-based admissions application toolset) to improve the graduate admissions experience. Starting Summer 2018, graduate applications submitted through Slate will be integrated into SIS Campus Solutions. The Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) process will occur in Slate, providing an integrated experience for newly admitted graduate and professional students. If a program requires a SIR deposit, the payment process will still occur in CalCentral.

Shortcut Keys

  • The use of shortcut keys is now enabled in SIS Campus Solutions. “Hot keys” perform immediate actions and reduce the need to use a mouse. 
  • For a complete list of Shortcut Keys and instructions, please see Shortcut Key Functionality.
