5. What information needs to be given to receive an invite?
If an existing member knows you personally, he can send you an invite without requiring any information from you. However, you can also request an invite by writing to the portal help desk. The help desk would require the following information to arrange for an invite to be sent to you:
a. Details of courses completed at Sai Institutions: [Campus] + [Year of completion of
course(s)] + [Course Name] and [Specialization (if any)] – pls add the list of qualifying
institutions here (from Join Us button)
b. Names of two staff/faculty along with their designation who can validate you as
ex-student of Sai Institutes
c. Student activities you participated in during school/college days
6. Can I join the portal if I have not studied in any of the Sai Institutes?
The Sai Students Portal is currently only open to the alumni members of men’s section of Sai Institutions. Non-alumni are not eligible to join this portal.
7. Why is the Sai Students portal not open to alumni of the women’s campuses of the
Sai University and School?
The Sai Students Portal working group has established this portal keeping in mind the sensibilities of the Sai educational institutions. It represents a purely voluntary effort, and is not officially endorsed by the Sai university. Even so, the working group hopes the portal will serve as a useful platform to strengthen the close bonds between the Sai university and its alumni. To ensure seamless integration with the university (whenever it happens), the portal has been established on similar principles of gender wise segregation.
Since the working group comprised alumni solely from the men’s campuses, it hasn’t been in a position to build a portal for women. The restricted access for women is an outcome of this limitation, and is in no way a willful attempt to discriminate against or exclude alumni from the women’s campuses. We are hopeful that women alumni will start a similar portal at the earliest for their own use.
8. Can I join the portal if I am still studying at the Sai Institute?
Membership to the portal is open only to those who have completed their studies at Sai Institutes. If you are still studying, you will have to wait till you have completed and passed the course.
Currently studying/researching students are also not eligible for membership on the portal.
9. I have been teaching at Sai Institute. Can I join the portal?
I am a visiting faculty at Sai Institute and want to become member of the portal.
Currently the portal is open only to alumni of men’s campuses of the Sai institutions. If you have never studied at any of the said institutions, you are not eligible for its membership.
