Yes. Students will be able to add themselves to, or remove themselves from, a course waitlist.
Based on community feedback, the Workday Student project team is working to ensure that faculty will be able to enroll students from the waitlist for their respective sections.
Yes. Faculty and academic administrators will have the ability to manage waitlists within Workday.
Faculty will not receive an automatic daily summary of waitlisted students, but they may generate a list at any time by viewing the waitlist details.
Students can view their own waitlist status on their student profile. If the student no longer wishes to take a course for which they are on the waitlist, they can remove themselves. However, please note that there are no automated notifications.
No, there currently is not a way to remove via group or batch function. At this time, students will need to be removed through the task entitled "Remove Student from Waitlist," which removes students one at a time from the waitlist.
No, there will no longer be codes for students to register themselves. To register a student from the waitlist, an administrator or faculty member will run the "Register Student from Waitlist" task. However, once a seat becomes available, the student next on the waitlist will receive an inbox item to act upon to register for the course. Once the student approves this inbox item, no further action is needed.
During the registration period, multiple students may be registered for a course at once. Once the course meets capacity and students begin to get waitlisted, only one student may be enrolled off the waitlist at a time.
Signature required courses will have a prerequisite tied to the course, allowing staff to approve students meeting the requirement in the specific section, during their open registration window.
The leave of absence and the withdrawal processes should generally be initiated by the student but select staff members, including the Registrar's Office, Academic Services, and GSAS/Heller/IBS student services offices will be able to initiate on a student’s behalf, if needed.
Yes. A glossary of search terms may be found by searching with the "?" symbol in the search bar in Workday.

Students will be able to add themselves to, or remove themselves from, a course waitlist during the registration process. Faculty will not receive an automatic daily summary of waitlisted students, but they may generate a list at any time by viewing the waitlist details. If a seat opens for student, it will go in automatic, sequential order, down the waitlist. Students will be notified via a Workday inbox item that a seat is available, and based on the popularity of the course, the student will have a defined set of time to accept or decline the seat. If no action is taken by the student during the allotted time, Workday will work down the waitlist order. However, faculty and staff, such as department administrators, will be able to manually manage the waitlist for their respective course sections. This means individuals with proper permissions will have the ability to add or remove students on a waitlist, manually register the student for a course, or edit the waitlist order for the course section, allowing flexibility in course enrollment
The primary program of study is the one carrying the credential. As majors are declared or changed, the Registrar's Office will make adjustments to stick to this pattern. The BS will be the primary Program of Study. If a student declares a BS after a BA, the Registrar's Office will make sure that the BS is the primary program of study. As majors are declared/changed we make adjustments administratively to ensure we stick to this pattern.
Students will need to claim their AP credit through the Registrar's office. Once the credit is processed, the student's eligibility will update in Workday and an override will not be required. If we do not have a student's AP scores, the student will need to request an override.
Dismissal is not being used in the place of withdrawal. Dismissal would be used by the Dean of Students or Student Right and Responsibilities. If COAS initiates a request to dismiss the student, the term for which the dismissal is effective is required. However, the terminology of dismissed does not appear on the transcript. We will the historic practice of adding a transcript note when a student is required to withdraw by COAS.
Students with a withdrawn status have started their course work at Brandeis, but have left the institution either by choice, or as requested by administration. Students with a discontinued status have been admitted but decided not attend Brandeis before starting their course work. We will also use the discontinued status to inactivate non-degree records (e.g., cross-registration students or special students). Keep in mind that Academic Services staff will primarily use "Withdraw" and "Leave of Absence". The Registrar's Office will be using discontinued for the reasons stated above.
There will not be any notations on the transcript if the student drops a course for medical reasons.
Yes! Student notes may be used for alumni even if their status in Workday is inactive.
