How Seven Colleges Streamlined Transfer Credit Processing
Transfer > Session
One of the largest community college districts in the nation—City Colleges of Chicago (CCC)—successfully integrated the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) to routinely import course equivalencies into the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions system. Although complex, the integration streamlines the process for configuring transfer rules in the PeopleSoft CS system. As a result, transfer credit processing has become standardized – across all 7 community colleges in Chicago – improving the turnaround time to evaluate college transcripts and to post transfer credit.
The session will describe why and how CCC centralized, automated and standardized transcript evaluations. The organizational structure, the method for configuring transfer rules at CCC, and the work it took to integrate its transfer systems will be highlighted. Attendees will begin to understand the City Colleges’ articulation systems, and how the integration simplifies the process to configure course equivalencies.
Come and hear about an innovative approach for transferring-in course credits and learn how CCC uses the inter-operability of systems for transfer advising, to build course equivalency rules, and to transfer-in credit.
