Universities exchange student information with IB-Groep for processing student loans. The exchange of messages is in a flat file format.
Functionality: The country-specific functionality for Netherlands enables the SLCM system to process incoming student applications, received from Studielink. Upon receipt of a message, SLCM performs the following tasks:
Creates a new student record
Routes the incoming message to the workflow of the faculty responsible for processing
student application. A faculty can accept or reject an application, or ask for more information. Sends a message to Studielink about the status of the application.
Note: In case of an error in communication, system stores the message in a table. There are reports that you may use to send these messages to Studielink.
Note: There are Netherlands specific reports in the SLCM system, which you can use to send the status messages to Studielink and to IB-Groep
In addition to the exchange of messages with Studielink, the system also exchanges data with IB-Groep, in a flat file format.
When a message comes into SLCM, the system creates workflows for the processing of these messages. It creates the workflow against the faculty responsible for a particular category of applications, for example, in case of a request for admission to a specific course, the system directs the request to the workflow of the faculty responsible for that specific course.
SLcM system records events such as creation of a new student registration, change in registration, de- registration for communication to the IB-Groep. Using the relevant reports, you can generate flat files that contain this information, for sending to IB-Groep. For example, a successful registration of the student to a Program of Study creates an SM-01 entry that is ready for communication to IB- Groep. In the case of an incoming flat files received from IB-Groep, you can run a report to update the relevant student records.
