Student Systems Renewal Program (SSRP)

You’re invited! Attend the SSRP’s Webinar: The New Easy-to-Use Solution for Financial Aid, Awards and Scholarships

All faculty and staff are invited to attend a webinar hosted by the Student Systems Renewal Program (SSRP) on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 10:30 a.m. This webinar will introduce York’s new solution for Financial Aid, Awards and Scholarships, which is launching to the York community in July 2024.


York University is transforming the student, faculty and staff experience, making it easier for:

  • students to apply, enrol, take courses, as well as obtain degrees, diplomas, and certificates​;
  • faculty to plan and administer courses and curricula​;
  • students, faculty, and staff to be able to access the information they need;
  • the community to feel satisfied with York's delivery of a high-quality student experience.

SSRP is working with the York community to deliver a culture of service excellence at York – co-creating solutions that are user-focused and collaborative to enrich the experience for students, faculty and staff. New systems and processes will contribute to the priorities set out in York's University Academic Plan (UAP) in many ways, which include, providing global learning and research opportunities for students, supporting innovative curriculum delivery and developing connections to experiential learning opportunities.


York University is committed to creating positive change for students. The SSRP will introduce new processes and technology systems that will work together to improve the student experience as well as ensure that staff and faculty have the tools they need to effectively perform their administrative and academic work.

Transforming Processes

York will implement simple and efficient processes to enable high-quality service delivery. The SSRP team, in collaboration with subject matter experts from across the University, will ensure processes are streamlined and focused on value for students, faculty, and staff.

Transforming Systems

York will launch next generation technology systems to significantly improve how students, faculty, and staff interact with each other. Modern cloud platforms will position York for the future by emphasizing the user experience and by providing secure access to the information they need.
