MyHSPH/Student Information System Access Restored from Off Campus

Dear HSPH Community

We are pleased to report that all features of the MyHSPH portal and student information system (SIS) are now fully functional from both on campus and off campus.  The issue with off campus access to SIS features as a result of a major database and hardware upgrade has been resolved.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

Thank you,
Student Information System Group
