The Student Information System (SIS) website crashed at around 5:00 AM today, during the first hour of the start of the adding and dropping period, disrupting students from securing slots for their second semester classes.
According to the official Twitter account of the Management Information System (MIS), the servers have reached their maximum limit. They advised students who cannot login to “wait and login at another time.”
Students expressed their disappointment over the malfunctioning of the site, stating that they barely slept just to wait for the start of the adding and dropping period.
“I almost always never complain, so it’s fun for me, but very inefficient,” Third Year Education student Norman Cuizon said.
Some also criticized the new enrollment system for its inconvenience and asked for the revival of the old enrollment scheme.
“I mean, the idea na pwede nato ma costumize ang atong schedule is great but wala sila ka prepare sa fact na since ing ato na ang system, mas mubug-at ang traffic sa SIS,” AB Psychology student Jirah Lin expressed, adding that only after around 30 minutes and after repeatedly refreshing the page was she able to add her subjects.
Following Memorandum No. 2016-60 released last Oct. 10, core or minor subjects are opened to all and can be “pre-enrolled” on Oct. 28 starting 5:00 AM.
The SIS website was fixed few hours after the malfunction.
