Oregon CIS Portfolio Log In

The Oregon Career Information System (CIS) is an outstanding online resource for information on careers, colleges, scholarships and related information. All students use CIS for their required Future Focus class, and it is recommended for research information anytime a student writes a career paper – such as in Economics.

Below are directions to help CHS students remember how to log into their CIS Portfolio Accounts (where they can then save information). Once on the CIS website, tools are easy to explore and the program is fairly intuitive to use.

GETTING STARTED:

To reduce software issues, do not use the Firefox or Internet Explorer. USE ONLY SAFARI.
