Keri Disch: Registrar and friend of Student Sunrise

Keri Disch arrived at WashU in July 2020 to lead the Office of the University Registrar and help reimagine the university’s registration processes in partnership with the Student Sunrise project. 

What’s on the horizon for Workday Student?

Advisors, instructors, students, and other affected stakeholder groups will begin to see and hear more details of our transition to Workday Student beginning fall 2023.  

Making sense of course numbers

WashU will adopt a universal four-digit course numbering system to indicate course progression and to support curriculum management in Workday Student.

Introducing Workday business processes  

In Workday, a business process is an automated workflow that routes tasks to designated users. These processes will improve student experience and make operations more consistent and efficient.

Change impact discussions to begin in June

These sessions are the first of five throughout the project that will ensure an understanding of the effects of key changes on our culture, people, roles, processes, policies and systems.

Introducing academic units

Academic units are the primary organizational structure in Workday Student. They are used to represent schools, divisions or any other unit that admits students, offers programs of study or offers courses. Academic units are structured together to manage academic process flows, security access, Workday rule inheritance and reporting.

Workday Student to replace advising systems

Schools and units will retire their individual advising systems to create a unified experience for students and advisors across the university.
