Near the end of fall 2010, a transition team made up of staff from colleges, academic programs, ASR, and the Graduate School reviewed the current procedures for approving or denying certain registration exceptions for Graduate School students. That group determined that this process should be transitioned to an online format, using the software product Workflow Gen.
In January, a Workflow Gen project team was created. This core team, made of up ASR and Graduate School staff, is meeting with groups of staff from colleges and academic programs to review and revise a streamlined process draft. The first meeting with stakeholders from three colleges (held on February 2) generated significant useful feedback. That feedback will be incorporated into the next process draft, which will be reviewed by all colleges over the next few weeks.
Once the revised process has been finalized, development in Workflow Gen will begin. The project will be complete before fall 2011. To review documents as they are completed, visit the Registration Exceptions page on the project website.
