Members of the Oracle Customer Strategic Design Program include Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, University of Texas System and the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

The first phase of Oracle Student Cloud is planned for the 2015 calendar year. Phase 1 will provide functionality related to enrollment, payment and assessment, and it will integrate with Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud and Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud. According to Oracle, it is also "expected to include flexible core structures and an extensible architecture to manage a variety of traditional and nontraditional educational offerings." One component will be a mobile user interface that can be extended and branded for individual institutions.
