Academic Foundation

A campus in the cloud.

Designed for today’s mobile generation, Workday Student is the first true cloud application for higher education. Learn how Workday Student transforms the way institutions serve and satisfy their constituents.

Adaptable and configurable.

  • Built to address the unique needs of higher education, Workday Student has an adaptive academic foundation that supports every functional area within the system to ensure institutional effectiveness and student success.
  • Configure applications to meet your needs rather than conform to a rigid, outdated student information system. Define and manage your own units of time and academic date ranges.
  • Manage various teaching models including competency-based learning, badging, and prior learning assessments.

Connect your community.

Workday Student includes a sophisticated engagement system to facilitate interactions between the institution and its many communities.

  • View all interactions—current and historical—for specific individuals based on security settings.

Accurate, real-time insight for better decision-making.

Built-in reporting tools and real-time, actionable analytics provide a 360-degree view of your institution, eliminating the need for a data warehouse or multiple third-party applications to reconcile data across systems.

  • Make fact-based decisions with personalized dashboards.
