Onboarding with the University Student Information System (Workday)

Beginning in early June, incoming students will receive information by email with instructions to claim their W&L network credentials and W&L email address.  This will also start the process of confirming information within the university student information system, Workday.  Students should carefully read and complete the onboarding steps within Workday, and should continue to monitor their W&L email account throughout the summer for updates from various university offices.  Completion of the Workday onboarding steps is an important university requirement;  failure to complete these steps by July 31 may result in consequences including the withholding of your University ID card.

Disability and Accommodation Requests

The Workday student onboarding process will include information about requesting accommodations. Requests should be submitted as soon as possible so that sufficient time is provided for processing and review of documentation. Students are also encouraged to review our policy, here.
