The Laptop Program
Every new full-time, undergraduate student is required to purchase a laptop from the SFU Laptop Program. Friendly, on-site customer service representatives make it easy for students to get set up with everything they need.
Saint Francis University has established email as a primary vehicle for official communication with students, faculty, and staff. Official email accounts for students are serviced by the familiar Microsoft Office 365 - Outlook platform.
This system provides students several powerful and convenient features. All University communications sent via email will be sent to your @francis.edu address upon your matriculation to Saint Francis.
Saint Francis University's wireless data network covers all academic areas, all residential (Student living) areas, and most communal areas around campus. This network handles daily traffic for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
All residence hall rooms now have individual WiFi access points affording guaranteed connectivity and quality of service.
SFU Web Portal
IT Services supports Saint Francis University's administrative information system. The core system for all administrative function for the university is Jenzabar CX. Jenzabar CX is an "ERP" system (Enterprise Resource Planning) - an integrated information system which serves all departments within the university.
These modules include Admissions, Student records, Course and Class records, Registration and Academic History/Transcripts, Student financial accounts, Student Services, Human Resources, Alumni, Institutional Advancement, and Finance systems.
Jenzabar CX enables university departments to communicate with and to serve the campus community by providing a broad range of functions:
Enabling administrative offices and faculty to more effectively serve students and other constituents through the use of technology
Facilitating access to information by various university constituents (students, employees, alumni, etc.) from “anywhere” at “anytime”
Using technology to improve efficiency and to enhance academic and administrative productivity
Positioning information technology as a core resource for students, faculty, and administration
Two major examples of systems which provide access to information maintained by Jenzabar CX include
The "My Francis" Portal - This is an online access point to the university information system for faculty, staff and students, as well as incoming students, alumni and other constituents. The portal provides access to a user's own personal information, as well as allowing them the ability to conduct various aspects of business with the university.
