Data Capture for Transfer Transcripts Schools and Registrar’s Office Workflow Financial Aid General Checklist Workflow School of Engineering Graduate Admission Workflow Undergraduate Admissions Workflows HR to IAE Workflow for Search Summaries Funding Request Form Approval Process AP Invoice Processing Fax Agent Mail Agent eForm Content Server and Replication Agent

5 Data Capture for Transfer Transcript
Transfer transcript is scanned. Data from the transcript is used to index the image automatically – Name, DOB, SSN etc. Data from the transcript is put into a file which is imported into Access.SMU. Make needed adjustments in Access.SMU. Image is routed to Registrar Academic Records staff for review based on the student’s last name.

6 Data Capture for Transfer Transcript

7 Transfer Workflow in Access.SMU
Transfer courses without SMU equivalency rules are electronically routed to Academic Director at the SMU college offering the equivalent course. Academic Director inputs SMU equivalent course. Completed course evaluations are routed back to the Registrar’s Office. Registrar’s Office reviews the transfer evaluation and completes the file.

8 Schools & Registrar’s Office Workflow
Undergraduate and Graduate schools scan documents at their work station. ImageNow routes document to either Records area or Enrollment based on the document type. Records Area: ImageNow performs alpha-based routing to 4 different queues. Documents are then processed and sent to complete queue. Enrollment Area: Based on document type, ImageNow sends documents to either Scheduling Manager, Enrollment Manager or Enrollment Supervisor. Documents are reviewed, processed and then sent to the complete queue. Mail Agent and Fax Agent

9 Schools and Registrar’s Office Workflow

10 Schools and Registrar’s Office Workflow (contd)

11 Financial Aid General Checklist Workflow
Financial Aid documents are scanned directly into an indexing queue. Documents are then sent to a ‘General Checklist’ queue for review. Reviewer routes document to ‘Verification review’ queue, ‘Temp General Checklist’ queue, ‘Specialist Checklist’ queue, ‘MBA/Theo No Assistance’ or ‘Missing Items’ queue. Documents are then routed to ‘Auto Route Advisor’ queue which sends the documents to an advisor based on Academic Career and Program Plan. Advisor then reviews and routes documents to ‘General Checklist Complete’ queue. Documents are archived from the ‘Complete’ queue after 180 days. Fax Agent

12 Financial Aid General Checklist Workflow
Documents are scanned and indexed Reviewer routes based on document type to specialist for review/ processing Financial Aid General Checklist Workflow Auto Route to UG or Graduate advisors based on Career, Academic Plan or Students Last Name Academic program

13 Document Imaging System: Data Capture and Workflow
3/31/2017 Mail Agent Workflows s and attachments are sent to the Imaging account. FA Award notifications are sent to Student’s with a blind copy to the FA Imaging mail box. Admissions (AD) counselors forward s and attachments from applicants. MA converts s/attachments to images and puts it in an indexing queue – ‘Mail Agent Incoming’. FA images – TIFF AD attachments not converted to TIFF Images are auto or partially indexed based on the Subject line text and forwarded to Success queue. FA s have all index keys in Subject line Auto indexed; No manual processing AD s have only SMU ID in Subject line Partially indexed; Doc type changed manually Images that do not get indexed are routed to ‘Mail Agent Failure’ queue. Once a day an notification alert is sent if any documents are in the failure queue. FA Imaging group relinks the documents Archive set to 3 days AD Imaging group relinks documents Archive set to 30 days TACRAO 2010, Joe Papari

Mail Agent Workflow Based on Subject Line Text: Images Fully/Partially Indexed s Converted to Images Images are Linked Manually

15 Engineering Graduate Admission Workflow
ImageNow Access.SMU 1. Application Documents Received Application and other relevant documents are added to ImageNow Project. Transcript, Test scores and Work Experience is entered in PeopleSoft. A checklist is updated. 2. Application Ready For Review ImageNow Projects that are completed are routed to ‘Graduate Division Review 1’ queue. N/A

16 Engineering Graduate Admission Workflow
ImageNow Access.SMU 3. Application Director Review Admission Director reviews documents in ImageNow and routes to appropriate Program Director. Admission Director reviews application data, enter decision and comments in Custom Evaluation Page. 4. Program Director Review Program Director receives notification, reviews student documents, and then routes to ‘Division Review II’ queue. Program Director reviews application data, enters decision and comments in Custom Evaluation Page.

17 Engineering Graduate Admission Workflow

Admission Coordinator updates Program Action in Custom Evaluation Page. 6. Associate Dean Coordinator Review Associate Dean Coordinator prioritizes Project Folders, and routes accordingly to ‘Associate Dean’ queue. N/A

18 Engineering Graduate Admission Workflow
ImageNow Access.SMU 7. Associate Dean Review Associate Dean receives notification, reviews imaged documents, and routes Project to ‘Letter Generation’ queue. Associate Dean reviews application data and enters his decision and comments. 8. Process Decision Letter Final decision letter is imaged to Project Folder, and the Project is routed to complete queue, which is auto-archived in 7 days. Admission Coordinator reviews comments on the Custom Page, completes letter generation, and enters the final admission decision.
