Check SaaS eligibility

SIS grade export is available for the described SIS-providers, but it’s supported for customers who use a SaaS solution that is fully hosted and managed by their SIS provider. For other deployment configurations, our service is best-effort based on the documentation we provide in our Help Center. 

You can check if your SIS is supported. Find out if your SIS deployment is managed by the SIS provider and located in the SIS-provider’s own cloud environment. 

If you’re unsure:

  • Teachers: Reach out to your administrator.
  • Administrators: Reach out to your SIS support.
