 Admissions Portal Applications in Student Lifecycle Management


As of SAP enhancement package 7 for SAP ERP 6.0, Industry Extension Public Services, the Business Function Admissions Portal for Higher Education Institutions (ISHERCM_ADMISSION_PORTAL) is available that enables you to create admission applications which can be further processed using a related decision framework. Applicants can then use this runtime online form to complete and submit applications to higher education institutions using their website.
