Why is it important to enter my data?

In order to generate timely and accurate reports, it is critical that the information entered into OFIS is correct. In order to attain the highest level of accuracy, faculty are responsible for maintaining the majority of their own information. All personal data stored is secured, and will only be viewable to you, and system administrators. Once your data is entered, reports can be generated quickly with no need to enter any further information.

Logging in to OFIS

You can login to OFIS by clicking on its link under "Academics" in CentralLink, as shown below. A Faculty User Guide​ will take you through the process of entering your vitae one step at a time.
If you have any problems or questions contact Amanda Scherr by email​ or by phone 989-774-1007.
