Mosaic for Students


In March 2015, McMaster replaced its long serving student information systems MUGSI and SOLAR with a new system for students. Named Mosaic, this system provides students with significant new functionality.

Highlights include:

  • A new enrollment (registration) system that lets students to enroll directly into specific classes, allowing them to build their own weekly schedule
  • View complete grade and course history
  • Make transcript requests online
  • Elimination of payment agreements
  • Simplified and unified application process for many scholarships and financial aid awards


To raise awareness of the change, the project team released several videos for students in the weeks leading up to the launch of the new system.

The change from a seven to a nine digit ID was completed in March 2015.
