UR Student

All Faculty members who instruct and/or Advise (except the SMD MD Program faculty), Student Support Staff and Students within the University will be impacted by the UR Student implementation. Read about the Instructor benefits of using UR Student and how to prepare for this change. For information about the project’s mission and goals, visit the UR Student Basics page.

Instructor Change Areas:

Prepare for a new way to view student rosters, assign course grades and view teaching schedules for current and past periods.  Each area below highlights upcoming changes to faculty procedures based on the UR Student design. More information can be accessed below as features are designed and tested.

Quick Instructor FAQs:

Q: Where will I enter grades after the system goes live?

A: Final grades (and midterm grades for certain schools) will be entered into UR Student. Instructor Access within Blackboard will no longer be available after UR Student is live (February, 2020). Blackboard will continue to serve as the University’s learning management system.

Q: To what extent can students communicate with faculty and department administrators?

A: Students can communicate with their Advisors using specific internal processes within UR Student such as Holds that may be applied to the student. For this, students can send comments to the appropriate recipient, such as their advisor, for a hold placed on them

Q: What does UR Student look like?

A: Snapshots of UR Student are found on our UR Student Screen Navigation page. Attend our Demo Days events for live demonstrations, or playback.
