Carthage began the Workday project in March 2020. The first “go live” date was in January 2021 with the human resources, payroll, and finance functions.

The College is now gearing up for a very exciting spring semester as we implement additional Workday modules to enhance the student experience at Carthage. Specifically, students will register in Workday for the fall 2023 semester in April.
