The UWinsite Student Update Project has reached the testing phase and finds a refreshed platform look. This project also includes updates to the latest security-related features, functionality, and fixes which will enable the University to respond swiftly to the evolving campus needs.
A team of staff from the Student Accounts Office, Student Awards and Financial Aid, Information Technology Services, and the Office of the Registrar have been collaborating on this project. While the group is currently testing the updated UWinsite Student platform, they are tracking the differences found in the new site.
“The update that will be released at the end of July will bring about visual changes to the platform,” says Lorraine Chandler, acting registrar. “For example, the search function is now displayed more prominently in the centre of the interface. There will also be technical aspects of the update that will position the University to address more effectively any issues that may arise.”
Chandler expresses gratitude for the campus community's patience during this project. She states that the project team is also reviewing the documented UWinsite Student knowledge articles and job aids to help the campus transition with the update.
The UWinsite Student portal will be unavailable July 21 to 24 while undergoing updates. The campus community can expect regular project implementation information through the DailyNews, emails, and the UWinsite Systems website.
