An update to UWinsite Student from July 21 to 24 will incorporate the latest fixes and improve security and functionality to ensure the system is agile to meet the needs of the campus community.
The implementation team comprises of members from Student Accounts, Student Awards and Financial Aid, Information Technology Services, and the Office of the Registrar. They have been working on the project in the background for several weeks and have initiated a code freeze prohibiting any further changes to UWinsite Student until the update is completed.
The UWinsite Student update timing was established to minimize the impact on users, ensuring to avoid key registration dates, add/drop or voluntary withdrawal dates, and grade submissions, says acting registrar Lorraine Chandler.
“With courses taking place year-round, finding the right dates for a temporary disruption to UWinsite Student needs careful consideration,” she says. “Students in summer programming may rely more on the system’s availability. The weekend timing is a good opportunity for a pause.”
The campus community can expect to learn more about the changes to UWinsite Student and their impact on downstream systems as the implementation progresses. Regular project implementation updates will be provided through DailyNews, emails, and the UWinsite Systems website.
