UWinsite Student, the University of Windsor’s new student information platform, is set to launch November 26. The system will replace the current Student Information System (SIS) including myUWindsor.ca and uwindsor.ca/sis.
UWinsite Student is built on Campus Solutions, an Oracle PeopleSoft product used at post-secondary institutions across North America and beyond. It includes modules for student records, admissions, academic advising, convocation, student financials, and financial aid as well as a self-service portal that will serve students, staff, faculty, and alumni.
“The new platform will be the technological foundation supporting the University’s commitment to an exceptional student experience,” says Alice Miller, University Registrar, and UWinsite Student Stream Lead. “We kept students front and centre during design while also ensuring the solution is best-practice driven, scalable, sustainable and aligns with the University’s future direction.”
Miller says UWinsite Student will move the University closer to paperless by transitioning processes like undergraduate grade appeals, the signing of undergraduate students into courses, and the review of applications for readmission will be moved to an online process. In addition, most of the self-service portal is mobile friendly, allowing students to interact with the platform anytime, anywhere. Other anticipated perks of UWinsite Student include the option for students to sync their schedules to their phones, automatic enrollment from a waitlist and graphical presentations of academic progress.
“We recognize that with the introduction of a new system, there will likely be some bumps along the road as we all adjust,” says Miller. “During the transition, there will be a variety of supports in place to assist students as well as faculty and staff members.”
In addition, information about UWinsite Student will continue to be shared with students through various channels including The Lance, the Student Experience Newsletter and social media.
The introduction of UWinsite Student follows the launch of UWinsite Finance in February 2018 and UWinsite Service and UWinsite Engage in August 2018. It marks the third and final milestone in the campus-wide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project.
If students have any questions or concerns, they can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
