Solving the International Institution Code Issue: A Case Study
Registrars, data managers and professionals who work in international credential evaluation and transfer credit are familiar with the challenges of maintaining institution tables for non-US institutions. With no standard institution code, saving in the information system is impossible unless you independently create your own code schema. This creates inconsistent or mismatched country specific code sets and historical data, accidental code duplication, and makes the digital transfer between systems or institutions nearly impossible.
Join us for this important webinar to learn how USC piloted the new PESC GEO CODE to improve both internal process and student service, and learn how you can get use this free service built on open architecture that:
- Improves data quality and integrity
- Decreases risk of fraud and abuse
- Enables faster processing and delivery of student data
