Ohio State is implementing Workday for the university's student information management. The university will utilize this modern, cloud-based system to manage student information and processes. The efforts of the student workstream are to improve the student experience through consistent, streamlined processes for anyone who interacts with undergraduate, graduate and professional student information. Doing so will decrease time and cost to degree completion or academic goal, increase engagement and provide services when and how students want them.

Student Vision Guiding Principles were developed to help determine the student-facing business processes within the Enterprise Project’s scope, which include:

  • Recruiting & Admissions
  • Financial Aid
  • Student Financials
  • Course Catalog
  • Enrollment & Records
  • Undergraduate Academic Advising
  • Degree Audit & Transfer Credit
  • Experience & Relationship Management

All student services business processes will be designed to fully leverage Workday and other enterprise technologies. The project team and university community will design process and technology solutions to:

  • Utilize a single system across all colleges for student recruitment and biographic/demographic data
  • Deliver a degree-planning tool for all students to manage their course selections and time to degree
  • Simplify and streamline students’ payment processes
  • Integrate curriculum approval process and course catalog to manage course creation and changes
  • Improve ease of scheduling classes, managing course waitlist and obtaining a transcript
  • Support room and exam scheduling and optimization
