Admissions [VC03/BPD02] v1

User Acceptance Test Overview

The information below is intended to provide colleges guidance on performing a User Acceptance Test on this business process.  The business process shown in the flow diagrams below may be only part of what is needed to complete an end-to-end test of a full business cycle.  Coordination with other colleagues at your college in advance of commencing testing is key to success. In the same way that it doesn't take a single individual to operate the business of running a college it will require coordination across departments to successfully test a business flow from beginning to end.

When testing the General Admissions process it will be important to test the admission of students and have that student data available to test other processes down-stream, such as in matriculating a student into their program, assessing their eligibility for Financial Aid, enrolling them into classes and paying their tuition.
