Technology & Tools for Advisors

This page is a work in progress; we would like to offer a list of technologies and tools supporting the work of campus advisors. Please send us suggestions at

Cal Answers -- centralized, integrated information from various campus systems.  Two new dashboards were added in August 2013 that greatly improve the campus' access to data supporting curriculum planning.  

Cal Central -- An online portal for student-related information (e.g. fees, schedule, degree progress, etc.) 

Student Information System (SIS) Replacement Project -- A new system is coming to Berkeley that will enable the transformation of the student experience by delivering a single, easy-to-use point of access to student services, by supporting faculty in managing courses, and by cultivating for staff a rewarding work environment that is less transactional and more service-oriented.
