Academic Advising

Setting students up for success? Brilliant.

Academic advising from Workday lets you feed academic requirements and enrollment history into the plan so you can help students chart their path to graduation.

Assign advisors to different student cohorts and allow students to have multiple advisors.

View student grades, academic records, and plans in a single system.

Let advisors track academic standing in real time.

Create academic plans—without setting pen to paper.

Academic advising software from Workday provides a central place for advisors to monitor progress and for students to see how they’ll complete the requirements.

  • View academic plan and register a saved schedule on a mobile device.
  • Allow advisors to view, add, and edit student notes.
  • Let students simulate “what if I change my major” and see the requirements.

Define requirements with ease.

  • Assign requirements to academic units, programs, concentrations, and more.
  • Set requirements at the highest level and have subordinate elements inherit them.
  • Permit or restrict courses to satisfy multiple academic requirements.


Design programs of study that meet student objectives.

  • Support various programs of study, such as official, undeclared, and non-degree.
  • Easily show meta-majors and group programs across your institution.
  • Let students pick a focus that’s narrower than their program of study.
