Getting Access to FAMIS

Basic Information
  • FAMIS works best in the Internet Explorer browser.  Make sure that Internet Explorer is the default browser on your machine.
  • Any urls that were bookmarked or saved to "Favorites" before the upgrade from FAMIS 8iR1 to XiR2 are no longer valid.  Use the new FAMIS production links.
