How Course Integration Works

a file containing student course information is created. 

That file is then sent to EDS using a method called SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol). 

After the file is successfully transferred to the EDS server, the student data from that file will auto-populate within EDS’s various modules ( HIBsterVention, aSAP, etc.).

The student data file must be formatted in a specific manner. If is isn't, the student data will be processed incorrectly or not at all, resulting in student data that is missing, incomplete or corrupted.

Please follow the below instructions to make sure all student data is transferred without incident.

Format the file

The first step in the process is properly formatting the student data file.

The file must be saved in the proper format. In this case, it must be saved as a comma-delimited .csv file.

The file must also include the student information requested by EDS; the particular requirements are listed in the following section.

Required Fields

The following fields must be included in the file — and in the exact order shown.

Each field below must be used as column headers on the file. Otherwise, when the file is processed, the first student course listed will be processed as the column header and that student will not be included in the database..

If no data is available for a given field, that field must still be accounted for by using a blank space. If a field is skipped entirely, the data will not import into the database correctly, causing errors (most notably, data will be imported into the wrong fields; for example: Course_code will display as StudentID, etc.).

Please include all the following headers:


Transfer the student data file

Like the Student Information Transfer, Add the directory "CourseInformation" into the root directory.
