With Workday Student, you can set up alerts to help your students make better choices. They’ll receive proactive notifications throughout their entire academic career. Maybe they’ve enrolled in too few classes to maintain their financial aid eligibility this academic period. Or perhaps they’re interested in taking a course, but it won’t count toward their degree completion. In the past, they might have no way of knowing—until it’s too late—the impact of those decisions on their financial aid, overall cost of tuition and fees, and time to completion.
At best, the advising systems in place today, typically more of a “degree audit” system, don’t support proactive, continuous advising or degree planning and students are often surprised by missing requirements just before graduation. With Workday Student, the rich data associated with program-of-study requirements, course enrollment history, and the respective academic plan informs registration activities within a single, unified user experience.
Our customers can also use the rich data they collect throughout the recruitment and admissions process to make recommendations for remedial courses that can be completed before a student even steps foot on campus or logs into his or her first online class. By proactively tackling remediation before the required coursework begins, students can save time and money, get a strong academic start, and more likely persist and complete their programs.
With Workday Student, institutions have greater insight into course scheduling, advisors have more time for one-on-one academic planning and counseling, and students are given all the tools they need to stay focused and progressing towards their degree throughout their college career.
