Pensacola State College’s transition to the Workday enterprise resource planning system reached another goal on Friday, Oct. 1, when the first stage of Workday Student went live.
Now, students and prospective students can apply for Fall 2022 classes at PSC. Students also can register for campus tours on Workday Student, which can be accessed on the PSC homepage at www.pensacolastate.edu by clicking on “Apply Now.” Students must then click “Sign In” at the top right-hand corner of the page and then click “Create Account.”
Students wishing to apply for classes in Spring 20222 or Summer 2022 still will use the current Spyglass system.
Workday Student will begin accepting Financial Aid applications beginning in December, and the new system will open for Registration and Advising in March 2022. New features will continue to be added through full Workday Student implementation in October 2022.
When fully implemented, Workday Student will replace current Student Systems such as Spyglass, eRosters, eAdvising and eManagement.
“It’s extremely exciting because we are here for our students,’’ said Michael Johnston, PSC Associate Vice President Research and Management. “We believe the students will really appreciate that it was designed as a phone app and to be user friendly. They will be able to do much more from their phones that they wouldn’t have been able to do before.”
The Workday team held a “Go Live” luncheon on Oct. 1 to celebrate the milestone. PSC President Ed Meadows thanked the extensive Workforce team for their extensive work.
“You have all done a wonderful job,’’ Meadows said. “I know many of you have been working on weekends and evenings. “I want to thank each and every one of you for the great work in getting us where we are now.”
Meadows said Workforce team members will be receiving a financial bonus.
Johnston named Senior Systems Coordinator Steve Zukowski as the winner of the Workday Student Phase 1 ERP Deployment MVP Award. Zukowski is in charge of Data Conversion and is the Data Subject Matter Expert for Workday.
Johnston said Zukowski “exceeded expectations in his role” and “knows PSC data inside and out.”
Zukowski accepted a desktop plaque for his work from Johnston, who said the winner was selected by Workday Executive members.
“I sure appreciate this,’’ Zukowski said. “But I could not do it without the team. It was a challenge, but I look forward to us succeeding.”
Workday became the employee and staff ERP system on July 1, 2020, replacing a system designed in-house. Workday is now used for accounting, purchase orders, budget, payroll and HR.
