The Office of Registrar announces changes in Workday

Associate Provost Ravi Ravishanker announced that the College is organizing a gradual overhaul of Banner. Instead, Workday will be the primary outlet for students to schedule classes, look at grades, and plan their academic year. Assoc. Provost Ravishanker explained that so far the college’s financial matters have been transported on to workday. By the spring of 2019, with the acceptance of the Class of 2023, the College plans to make Workday fully functional for the incoming first-years, relieving Banner of all its responsibilities.
