Defining External Organizations
Before you can use transfer credit processing, use the Organization Table (ORGANIZATIONS) component to define external organizations. As you define external organizations, specify their locations, contacts, departments, and characteristics. Also, specify whether the organization is a vendor.
As part of the external organization setup within this component, transfer credit processing requires that you:
Select the Offers Courses check box on the School Data page in the Organization School Data (SCC_EXT_ORG_ADM) component to identify the external organization as one that offers courses.
You can also access this page via a link on the Organization Table page. This page enables you to create external courses to be used in transfer credit articulation rules.
Enter the data that applies to the external organizations that offer courses on the School Data page.
When forming transfer credit rules, the system uses the values that you define for the external organization in the Career, Term Type, and Unit Type fields and the Catalog Information group box as system default values. Furthermore, if you indicate that an external organization has a shared catalog with another external organization, the system uses the catalog organization that you specify as the default value on the Course Transfer Rule page.
Defining external organizations functionality is shared with Campus Community and Recruiting and Admissions.
