Ellucian Ethos Integration

Coursedog is an official Ellucian Partner and supports a validated integration with Ellucian Ethos to sync your schedule & curriculum planning dataEthos boasts a unified data model across all SIS platforms and is built on open standards (REST, JSON). 

It is the best fit for the following types of institutions:

  • Currently using Ethos APIs to expose data externally.
  • Your institution has minimal data structure customizations
  • Updated system configurations (e.g. Banner 9)
  • IT staff is available to install any extensions necessary to close gaps due to customizations.


  • Modern standards based (REST, JSON) approach to expose your data.
  • Ellucian supported solution that is under active development.
  • Security is consistent with Ellucian and industry standards.
  • Flexible to your needs. IT staff will likely have the expertise to help close any gaps due to customizations (see Ethos extensions).


  • Requires an upgrade to Ethos. 
    • IT staff may not have expertise/resources to perform upgrades.
  • Ethos extensions may be required. 
    • IT staff may not have expertise or availability to install extensions (if necessary)

Requirements & Assumptions

Coursedog assumes you meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Ethos is currently enabled for Student modules. 
  • Institution is using corresponding baseline  processes and data structures (e.g. Course Scheduling, Course and Program inventory)
    • The Institution is responsible to meet the needs of their specific environment.
  • Ability to whitelist IPs as needed for Test and Production
    *Coursedog supports an industry standard transfer protocol for both approaches.  Coursedog will install a lightweight client that will pull the information from your database and expose the information externally via SSL/HTTPS. All transmissions will be handled over SSL so no need for you to open any additional ports (443).
