Workday Student Update 2021

Workday is an end-to-end, unified cloud platform consisting of financials, HCM, payroll, student, grants, planning, and analytics functionality. Designed for today’s mobile generation, Workday delivers a superior alternative for modern colleges and universities still using outdated legacy technology to run their campuses. Workday unites the entire campus under one modern, configurable, easy-to-use application that delivers rich analytics and insights to help you achieve your institutional goals.

Workday Student, the latest application to be delivered, is a full lifecycle solution that includes Student Recruiting, Student Admissions, Curriculum Management, Student Records, Academic Advising, Financial Aid, and Student Financials. The only higher-education-focused application built in this century, Workday Student was released in a phased approach in fall 2014 and was made generally available in fall 2016. All or part of Workday Student is currently in full use or in the deployment/planning stages at more than 60 institutions.

Founded in 2005, Workday serves more than 140 higher education institutions that range in size from small liberal arts colleges to large public research institutions and state systems. Here in the northeast, higher education institutions such as Amherst College, Babson College, Bentley University, Berklee College of Music, Brandeis University, Rhode Island School of Design, Simmons University, Smith College, Suffolk University, Wellesley College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and many others are realizing the benefits of unifying financial management, human capital management, payroll, student services, faculty engagement and business intelligence in one modern, agile, easy-to-use system.

Legal Note:

NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Any license or agreement accessed or entered into as a benefit of a Consortium Member’s NERCOMP membership is contingent on that institution remaining an active NERCOMP member for the full term of the license or agreement.  For example, if a license agreement lasts for a 3 year term, then the Consortium Member must renew its annual NERCOMP membership at least twice to remain an active Consortium Member for the full 3 year term. Failure of a Consortium Member to timely renew its NERCOMP membership status during the term of the license or agreement may result in either a) termination of the license or agreement or b) loss of the discount pricing available exclusively to NERCOMP Consortium members.

Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution. Each member institution signs its contracts with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their contracts reviewed internally by their own counsel.

NERCOMP also negotiates separate agreements with individual vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship with the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.

Archival materials on this site are not necessarily accessible. NERCOMP will timely respond to any specific requests to make any specific document accessible.
