If you haven’t been fortunate enough to use it yet, Tiger Center is a continuously evolving and refreshingly modern take on RIT’s enrollment process. Tiger Center allows you to do many of the same functions as the student info system, such as registering for classes, in a more intuitive and visually appealing way. It is an ongoing student-based project sponsored by ITS through the Student IT Office (SITO). SITO empowers students to use their specialties to create solutions for common problems in the RIT community.
Last week SITO added two new features to Tiger Center: a public version of the class search and a course catalog. Class search is a pre-existing feature within Tiger Center but now made public for a number of reasons:
- Anyone can now look up classes or course catalogs without an RIT login
- Previously only students had access to Tiger Center, but now faculty, advisors and other academic support offices can now use the Tiger Center class search to help students, prospective students and their parents
- You can now search for classes even more quickly without the need to login
The second feature is course catalog, which will allow anyone (again a public feature) to look up any academic program’s course curriculum. It doesn’t just show the classes offered in a particular semester, it shows all the courses that could be offered by a department. This feature will help students and prospective students research future classes offered by RIT.
