Resources for Advisers

Below, advisers will find a link to the Advising Handbook, as well as a visual guide to what students see in Workday as they navigate the online registration process.

(What a student sees as they register for classes via Workday)

When a student first logs into Workday, they should navigate to their Academics and Registration app and they see:

Student's Academic and Registration Dashboard

One of the first places a student should check is the Registration Requirements box. Here is an example of a student who is ready to register: their priority registration times are indicated, they don’t have any holds, they have confirmed their advising meeting, and their emergency contact information is up to date.

When a student confirms their advising meeting, this is the screen they see. They type in the name of the person with whom they met and click submit. As soon as they’ve entered information here and hit submit, they’re cleared to register when their priority time arrives and all other holds are resolved. When a student submits this confirmation, it generates a Workday notification and email to the student’s adviser of record to alert the adviser that the confirmation has been submitted and indicates what was submitted.

Students can search for courses prior to their priority time and/or in real time through Workday to add courses to their schedule:

If they are searching for courses prior to registration opening, they can add those courses to a saved schedule. The video below explains how students can search for and save courses.

Students can register from a Saved Scheduled (Express Registration) or directly from a course listing. Once registration opens for them, they can simply login and register for the courses in their saved schedule. If they’re adding courses individually, they can register for those directly from the course section listing. Here is a video explaining both processes.

Once they’ve registered, their schedule looks like this. The View My Course function in Workday allows students to see all the details of their courses and (for Fall 2024 registration) swap, drop or ‘late’ drop (or withdrawal) the courses if necessary.

If a student is on a waitlist, they can see their waitlist status with the View My Courses function in Workday. The student must scroll to bottom of their course schedule to see My Waitlisted Courses.
