A cross-campus project will bring the UWinsite Student system in line with the latest technical, functional, and security-related features and fixes, while positioning it to take advantage of future enhancements.
The Campus Solutions Update Project will accommodate updates since the November 2018 launch of UWinsite Student, including improvements to the class wait list functionality, the academic advisement summary, and class search.
The project includes key members from Student Finance, Student Awards and Financial Aid, Information Technology Services, and the Office of the Registrar. The group will be reaching out to individuals across campus to help with testing during the final phases of implementation.
“We are not anticipating any day-to-day impact to UWinsite Student users, as most of the updates will happen behind the scenes,” says acting registrar Lorraine Grondin. “We appreciate the campus community’s patience as we work through these updates.”
Staff from the relevant offices will dedicate part of each workday to the project, leaving less time for support, such as assistance with daily issues and requests for reports.
UWinsite Student is frozen for any system updates and enhancement requests. The project is expected to take approximately seven months, with an anticipated completion date of Nov. 22.
“We will continue to update the University of Windsor community through the UWinsite website as well as through DailyNews and emails,” Grondin says.
