11 August, 2022

As you are aware, fall 2023 sees the first release of the new Workday Student system. In preparation for this change, Faculties are being asked to review a number of curriculum elements. These elements include pre-requisites, co-requisites, and course equivalencies. 

It is anticipated that units will need to submit curriculum proposals to adjust some aspects of their courses in preparation for the 2024 Winter Session. Both Senate Curriculum Committees will be facilitating a modified approval process related to these changes.

An expedited Senate approval process has been put in place for ONLY pre-requisites, co-requisites, and equivalencies for Workday Student implementation. Changes will first need to be approved via any departmental/Faculty processes and then submitted to the Senate Curriculum Committees for approval no later than March 15, 2023. 

No immediate action is required. In the coming weeks, the Office of the Senate will send an email to Faculty curriculum committee chairs with instructions for submitting changes in bulk. More details are available online here.
