University of Tennessee System Adopts Oracle Student

The University of Tennessee (UT) System has extended its use of Oracle's Cloud applications by adopting the Oracle Student student information system (SIS) across its five campuses to help students manage their education journey from enrollment to graduation and beyond.

The SIS replaces the current Banner and CAMS system, Oracle said in a release. It will integrate with the university's existing Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications, adopted in 2022, on a single platform to manage data for human resources, financial aid, supply chain, and student records and services systemwide.

Oracle Student management features include:

  • Curriculum registry;
  • Term and non-term financial aid planning and packaging with 90% automation;
  • Multi-year course planning, with core frameworks;
  • Lifelong learning planning;
  • Smart alerts and touchless processes; and more.

In addition the university is implementing these Oracle services to assist employees: Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM), and Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain Management (SCM) for real-time business process data to increase efficiency, reporting and ease of use.

"As part of the Early Adopter Program we have been able to work with Oracle to actively help shape the direction of Oracle Student," said Randy Boyd, UT System president. "We are confident that this investment will position the UT System at the forefront of student system technologies."

"From the beginning, we have architected Oracle Student to support the unique needs of systems in the most agile and dynamic ways," said Vivian Wong, group vice president of higher education development at Oracle. "We are excited to have a passionate partner in UT as we work together to deliver a product that will help shape the future of higher education."
