New Reverse Transfer Features Help Institutions Exchange Data

by NSC Blog | Jul 2, 2019 | Reverse Transfer, SPEEDE Server |

EDI and XML Formats Now Available

To help institutions participate in Reverse Transfer, colleges and universities now have the choice to select EDI, XML, and/or pipe delimited file formats to exchange course grade data. The new file formats streamline the level of effort for institutions to prepare or ingest course files.

Through Reverse Transfer, four- or two-year institutions can securely send course and grade information to any two-year institution from which a student has transferred. If eligible, the student is then awarded an associate degree.

Benefits of these new Reverse Transfer features include:

  • Better alignment with schools’ Student Information System (SIS) requirements;
  • Improved time commitment on behalf of schools to prepare or ingest Reverse Transfer course files;
  • Streamlined data exchange with partner schools;
  • Consistent data standards with the Postsecondary Electronics Standards Council (PESC); and
  • Secure file exchange through our SPEEDE Server.

“The Clearinghouse is very appreciative of the grants provided by The Kresge Foundation and Ascendium for these enhancements and the degree granting institutions in Texas and Florida to test outgoing files with each school’s SIS,” said Shelby Stanfield, Clearinghouse Director of Service Innovation Networks, and former Vice Provost and University Registrar at the University of Texas-Austin.

If your institution would like to sign up to use Reverse Transfer, transition to a new EDI or XML file format, or have additional questions about Reverse Transfer, contact the Reverse Transfer Support Team at rtsupport@studentclearinghouse.com.
