Description:

During the summer of 2023, Université de Montréal (UdeM) unveiled its brand-new admissions experience, designed to simplify, facilitate and humanize the various steps applicants take when choosing a study program and submitting their online application. This massive endeavour was three years in the making and required all hands on deck, from recruitment and admissions teams to IT specialists.

In this session, you will learn how the University took an innovative approach to tackling this project. Our aim was to meet the needs of Web-savvy users and prepare the University for the future while leveraging PeopleSoft SIS and other existing systems.

From identifying business needs to selecting systems and features, discover how UdeM did it. This workshop will give you an overview of the essential components used to turn our dream into reality:
• New program catalogue with Peoplesoft data fetched with Query Access Service
• Web-based admission application from using AAWS
• New accepting/declining offer process with the Fluid activity guide
• Satisfaction survey built with PS forms
• New email notifications with CommGen
