Admissions Track

About This Track

A student’s relationship with your institution can start with the Admissions track! Admissions plays a key role in getting students in the door - beginning with the recruitment of prospects and on to an offer of admission being made to an applicant. During the recruitment phase, your institution may source names from third-party vendors (e.g. SSS, EOS), attend school fairs, and load prospect data from testing agencies (e.g. SAT, ACT, TOEFL, GRE). Your institution now has the ability to use delivered functionality to develop its own application and data load processes using features such as AAWS (Admissions Application Web Services) and PDL (Prospect Data Load). Other delivered processes at your disposal are admissions evaluation tools, the 3C’s, and evaluating test and/or transfer credit for newly admitted students. You have the wonderful opportunity to share your institution’s best practices for the Admissions Campus Solutions module and we’re especially excited to learn how you may be using delivered functionality “out-of-the-box” from Oracle to streamline the recruitment and/or admissions process.

Admissions Fluid Self-Service, Fantasyland No Longer

Crystal Garvey
Northern Illinois University
Senior Associate Director, Admissions Systems & Processing

Northern Illinois University went live with our PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 upgrade in early October 2018. For admissions, the most important piece of new functionality was fluid self-service. We went live with the delivered baseline functionality and have been pleased with the enhanced information we can provide to applicants in different stages of their application process.

Our Experiences of Implementation and Integration of Slate with PeopleSoft

Brenda Curry-White

In July, 2018 we began an implementation of Slate by Technolutions as a CRM for admissions activities. We are nine months in to the implementation, and doing integration with our database of record, which remains PeopleSoft. We will share our lessons learned, tips, decision points, and how we've involved more people on campus than just admissions to better serve students.
