Import data from your Student Information System (SIS)

This article is for teachers.

To use the SIS integration features, all teachers must have one of the following:

  • A Google Workspace for Education Plus license
  • A G Suite Enterprise for Education license
  • A Teaching and Learning Upgrade license

Starting July 9, 2024, you must have one of these licenses in order to use the grade export feature.

If you use Classroom with Google Workspace for Education, you can connect Classroom to your SIS. After your administrator configures the connection, you can link your classes and use SIS integration features like importing student rosters and exporting grades to SIS. Learn more about SIS integration features.

Important: SIS integration is available with numerous partners. Other SIS partnerships are in development. Learn about SIS integration partnership status.
