A conversation elsewhere reminded me that there are common questions about SIS status pages that come up at this time of year. Let me address the big three.
1. What does "initiated" mean?
Initiated is a term the SIS uses when it puts something on your "to do" list. It means the item has not been filed in our office yet. Keep in mind that we have a deluge of documents to file. Don't worry about a missing credential yet. We'll be in touch by email once everything is filed to let you know if we need something from you.
