Sakai Support

Service Description

Sakai is the Course Management System used by all of The Claremont Colleges. All faculty and students, and most staff, have accounts on Sakai. There is a single instance of Sakai which is managed by Pomona College. CIS provides support for Sakai including help with accounts and passwords as well consultation on how and when to use specific Sakai tools, help on how to use specific tools, and training on Sakai in the form of workshops and one-on-one training.

Sakai accounts for incoming students are generally created at the beginning of June when the various Sakai sites for incoming students become available. Course sites are created automatically for all courses each semester and become available to students two weeks before classes start. A full description of our policies regarding the creation of course sites and populating them with students and faculty is described in our Sakai Policy document.

Sakai course sites are created for each individual section of a course. If the instructor wishes to combine all or some of the sections into one site, please send an email to the CIS Help Desk at
