The update to UWinsite Student, the University’s student information platform, is now complete. The latest security-related features, functionality, and fixes were implemented while bringing a few enhancements.
“The changes are mostly to the back end of the system while positioning it to better address issues as they arise,” says acting registrar Lorraine Grondin. “Most users may notice only slight changes to the icons. There is new feature for students: Enrolment Appointments, which makes it easier to find registration times.”
The UWinsite Student Update team was made up of members from the offices of the Registrar, Student Awards and Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and Information Technology Services.
“We are thankful to the collaborative group who made the update such a success. We are also grateful to our campus partners for their input on the project and patience when UWinsite Student was unavailable,” says John Osborne, assistant director for business solutions and systems in IT Services.
A drop-in session with a short presentation for faculty and staff to learn more about the recent update is scheduled for 11 a.m. Dec. 1. The session will cover the minor changes to the system, the UWinsite Student Resources available online, and clarification on the “Enrolment by My Requirements” function. A registration form is available online and the presentation will be recorded for those who would like to review it later.
