FAQs - Setting User Defaults

User Defaults allow each KSIS user to set pre-determined values for certain fields in KSIS. For example, if you work for the College of Arts and Sciences, then you would set your preferred Academic Group to be that college.  To set up your user defaults, follow the steps below: 

  1. Log into KSIS with your personal eID and password.
  2. In the left Menu area, select Set Up SACR.
