Introducing Student Planning

The University of Winnipeg presents ‘Student Planning’.


Student Planning is the ‘next generation’ SIS for the UW. This new online service provides our undergraduate students with online degree planning, timetabling, and advanced registration functionality, as well as enhanced tools to communicate with their Advisors…. all available to them at the touch of their fingertips!

Student Planning was launched on March 2, 2016 for all undergraduate students. This highly collaborative initiative involved over 100 individuals pan-university. Core team members included folks from Student Records, Academic Advising and the Technology Solutions Centre. A full list of this as well as the broader highly dedicated team can be found here: Credits

Student Planning is the next generation of Ellucians’ WebAdvisor product (that which provides online student and faculty access to our Student Information System). It updates/replaces many functions of the old WebAdvisor, including registration, and adds many exciting new features such as online degree planning, online waivers, and more!

Student Planning helps students plan their courses against their degree requirements, perform ‘what if’ analysis, and enables them to register for courses from an interactive timetable view. It allows students to create a multi-year plan of their courses taking into account requisites and the terms/years in which courses are typically offered. Students can plan out their whole degree from their first year to graduation!

To assist our students with the use of this fantastic new online service, we have produced nine Student Planning help videos. They are directly embedded in the Student Planning help files for easy access as well as available on the Student Planning Website and on the University of Winnipeg YouTube Playlist. Additional information including FAQs are available on the Student Planning website.

UW students are very excited and positive about these new online services! Initial student feedback can be found here: Student Kudos
