Student Information Systems

Nashville School of Law Adopts New SIS

Nashville School of Law has implemented a new student information system (SIS) with the goal of expanding and improving services for the school's rapidly growing student population.

The law school has doubled its enrollment in recent years and a new dean took the helm of the school in July 2014. "With a new dean in place and enrollment doubling, the entire school was ready to make necessary changes and reevaluate how we were managing data efforts," said Elizabeth McDonald, assistant dean of administration at the Nashville School of Law, in a news release. "Dean Justice William Koch's goal is to continue to increase student enrollment by focusing on realigning curriculum, and expanding our student's real world experience in the classroom."

The school had been using manual data collection and record management processes. With the increased enrollment, it was becoming a challenge to maintain accurate records using manual processes. The school set out to find a student information system that could offer "comprehensive functionality, affordability and ability to interface with other systems," according to a news release.

The school selected Jenzabar Sonis, a Web-based student information system designed specifically for smaller higher education institutions, according to information on the company's site. The SIS provides integrated services for admissions, registration, grading, billing, course management and other administrative functions. It works on all browsers and devices.

Other institutions that have recently implemented Jenzabar Sonis include Wilson Pacific University, North Point Bible College and Center for Agriculture and Food Security and Preparedness at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
