UAT CF.010 - SF Payment Plans [Sprint 2] (Project Archive)

User Acceptance Test Overview

The Payment Plan process calculates and posts payment installments for tuition fees, mandatory fees, course fees, class fees and other fees as the college determines are eligible for students to make payments on.  Payment plans are created or copied for each term and students are assigned to the specific plan either by college staff or via student self-service if the college provides that option.  Once a student is enrolled into a payment plan the outstanding charges are paid and installment amounts are created with payment due dates based from the criteria entered into the plan when it was created.  Students can make their installment payments in person at the cashier office or online via student self-service.

Here we have 4 main Payment Plan processes, the first CF.010.1  Enrollment is where college staff or individual student enrolls into classes.  The second Tuition Calculation process, CF.010.2  Tuition Calculation is where college staff calculates the tuition for an individual student.  The third Manage Payment Plans process, CF.010.3  Manage Payment Plans is where college staff create a payment plan(s), manually assign or cancel students to/from a plan and accept payment for the installments.  The fourth Payment Plan process, CF.010.4  SF Transactions to General Ledger is where a nightly schedules SBCTC job is run to send SF transactions over to Finance to record into the general ledger.
