CS: Local Configuration Guide - Student Financials

The Student Financials Configuration Guide explains necessary tables needed to setup an institution in the PeopleSoft system.  The order of the configuration tables presented in this guide adheres to the table setup sequence required to successfully set up all tables necessary for the Campus Solutions Student Financials module. Student Financials configuration is dependent upon Campus Solution Academic Structure configuration setup being completed.

Tree [Global Configuration with Local Values] - TableSet Controls

A Set Control Value is established (WAnnn), connected to a Default SetID (WAnnn)for the institution and a Tree Name (ITEM_SECURITY_nnn) is created for the institution. (nnn = college code, e.g. WA130 for Lower Columbia College)

A college can view this initial setup by navigating to the TableSet Control page and entering the institution code (e.g. WAnnn) the TableSet Control page opens on the Record Group tab.  Click the Tree tab to view the default SetID established for the institution's Set Control Value, as well as view the Tree Name established (e.g. ITEM_SECURITY_nnn) for the institution in the Tree Controls section. Establishing this configuration during implementation allows for the institution SetID to share "trees." Trees depict hierarchical structures that represent a group of summarization rules for a particular database field. By using trees, the system has a single place to look for summarization rules. This centralization enables rules to be defined once and then use them throughout the system. Trees in Student Financials are used for such things as Charge Priorities and Payment rules.

Tree Manager

As part of configuration, the project team prior to implementation created a Tree for each institution to be used within SF for security as well as payment allocations.  

When looking at the tree in the Tree Manager it helps to understand the concept of Trees in PeopleSoft. Trees depict hierarchical structures that represent a grouping of values to leveraged by rules configured in the system for a particular database field. By using trees, the system has a single place to look for groupings of values used in the rules.  Trees in Student Financials are used for such things as Charge Priorities and Payment rules and are consolidated under a college specific Tree as displayed in the image below. To find your institution's SF Tree configuration, on the Tree Manager page, search for the Tree Name: ITEM_SECURITY_nnn, for example, ITEM_SECURITY_130 where '130' is the college code for Lower Columbia College.

Key Words [Not Deployed]

Define keywords to allow for searching within item types. Keywords are shared by FA and SF.  

Key words enable colleges to quickly locate item types within a long list of possibilities. For example, in a list of dozens of payment item types, only a handful that are related to loans. If colleges decided to define 'LOAN' as a key word (10 character limit) and associating it with the select few item types, it is much easier to locate just the item type needed. Up to three keywords can be defined per item type. Key words are associated with edit tables, and one must select the appropriate edit table to use for each key word. As of the date of this document, keywords are not in use. Should a college decide to leverage key words after deployment the college would need to work with the Customer Services organization to properly configure.

Item Types

Item types are the backbone of the PeopleSoft Student Financials system. Each item type defines and describes an individual transaction. One of the many functions of item types is to classify charges, payments, waivers, financial aid, and more on customer accounts.

The Student Financials features will require item types to be configured properly to work within the logic of the processes (such as refunds, write-offs, third party contracts, payment plans, Financial Aid etc.).

Item Types work in conjunction with the Tree Design(Tree Manager) and are actually organized with in the tree architecture to aid in other system functionality.

Item types are deliberately created within a range of numbers in order to be categorized on the item type trees. It is this categorization that aids system functionality; For example what type of charges can a payment pay. This is important as item types will continue to be added in your production environment so the numbering of new item types needs to follow the defined numbering scheme laid out by the Item Type Tree.

Item Type - Initial Setup

The Initial Setup page is used to start defining new item types. Most notably the description and the classification. In other words: Its name and what it does.

Late Fees - Billing

To supplement the Late Fees process, Campus Solutions offers an alternative Late Fees calculation process

While Late Fees uses past-due amounts, aging categories, or both to calculate late fees, Late Fees - Billing compares the amount due from a specified billing record with the amount of payments or credits on the account. If the payments or credits are less than the amount due, the student is assessed a late fee.

Late Fees - Billing enables you to:

  • Define which payments or credits are considered in the calculation, using Item Type Group.
  • Define a threshold amount for which, the account is not assessed the late fee if the unpaid balance is less than this threshold.

Charge Priority List

Defining charge priority rules is the first step in determining how the system applies a payment. Charge priority setup defines exactly what charges are eligible for payment under a particular rule set. We also define whether payments can be applied to charges from various time periods and can they establish a priority order for allowed charges.

Because charge priority list details are defined at the tree node level, Charge priority lists depend on item type trees setup to identify which charge items are qualified for the particular type of payment.

Billing and Due Calendars

Used to define billing and due date calendars using tuition calculation process.  

Billing and due date calendars are associated with tuition calculation and are used to determine the percentage of specific fees due to be paid by a particular time. Because a due date calendar is required for the setup of fees, you must define at least one billing and due date calendar for your institution. You can also define additional billing and due date calendars as needed to meet the requirements of your business processes.

When creating your billing and due date calendar, you can specify that the payment of a fee is due in full at a particular date, or you can create a payment schedule. For example, you can define a billing and due date calendar that indicates that your application fee is due in full at the time that an application is filed and create another billing and due date calendar for installment payments for your tuition fees. You can also design the system so that a due date for a fee is designated at the time that you create a bill or post a charge.

These calendars determine how the system adjusts term and class level fees when a student withdraws or drops a class. The system uses the number of days that a term or class has been in session or the class attendance percentage to determine the percentage of refund due.

Different adjustments schedules can be configured for different drop reasons.

Criteria

Criteria are essentially questions that can be answered yes or no. In PeopleSoft Student Financials, use criteria to compare one or more variable values to a student's academic situation to determine whether an action should be triggered (for example, applying a waiver to fees), or in which tuition group the student should be included.

The Criteria component is a flexible means of identifying and classifying students. Criteria can be as simple as a single variable (for example, is the student a sophomore) or extremely complex involving multiple variables.

Criteria

Used to define certain qualifications a student has to either be placed in a tuition group, or to be eligible (or ineligible) for a fee/waiver.

Payment Merchant (Cybersource)

The ctcLink Project Team has configured the Payment Merchant links the Peoplesoft electronic payment process to a payment adapter and a Cybersource Profile ID.  A Payment Merchant is configured for each Cybersource Profile ID. Colleges will have a unique Cybersource Profile ID for Student Self Service, another if the college charges an Online Admissions fee where payment is expected to be received through the Online Admissions Application and another for colleges accepting credit card payments at the Cashier's office.

In addition, separate Payment Merchants are needed for Credit Card payment and eCheck payment.  Not all colleges offer eCheck payment options, therefore not all colleges will have this configured for their institution.

Two custom adapters have been created for CyberSource integration.  The CYBERSOURCE adapter is used for Student Self Service, Online Admissions, and Cashiering transactions.  Another adapter was developed to support the Online Student Enrollment and Continuing Education (OSECE) integration, known as the CYBERSOURCEOCE adapter; however this second adapter is likely to be replaced with the adoption of the CampusCE product integration currently under integration development.

Peoplesoft online payment in ctcLink:

A Student has ‘Make a Payment’ page under Financial information Tile on their ctcLink Student Homepage. Upon clicking, it displays the outstanding balance and has option to make an online payment from there. Make a Payment button in that page, takes them to secured CyberSource website, where user enters the Personal Information such First Name, Last Name, Address, Email Address, Credit Card Information and Finish the Payment. If the payment is accepted in CyberSource, users are redirected to PeopleSoft and complete the transaction.

Below are the configurations that needs to be established to integrate the CyberSource with new colleges coming to ctcLink:

1. Payment Merchant configuration:

The following navigation to configure Payment Merchants: Setup SACR > Common Definitions > Electronic Payment > Payment Merchant

Payment Merchant links the PeopleSoft electronic payment process with CyberSource (CyberSource profile). A separate Payment Merchant and associated CyberSource profile must be created for each online payment types offered by college. For example, a profile would be needed for Student Self Service and Online Admissions (only for colleges that collect the registration fee). Each of these Payment Merchant will be linked with CyberSource profiles during CyberSource configuration.

PS:

1. Third Party Merchant ID field in this configuration will be used as CyberSource profile name in CyberSource configuration (a link btw PeopleSoft and CyberSource).

2. Key (SOAP key) and Expire Date fields under Security Key section in this configuration needs to be updated once the CyberSource configuration is complete. The expire date will be determined based on the day it is generated and usually valid for 2 to 3 years. Production support team keep monitoring these dates and work with college to create new key and update them back in Peoplesoft with the help of colleges.

Merchant Setup ID Naming Convention

The Merchant Setup ID follows a standard naming convention for colleges, which begins with the first 3 characters of the institution (e.g. 171 = WA171 for Spokane Community College as displayed in the example screen shot).  

  • The naming convention for the Self Service Credit Card is nnnSELF_CCRD (e.g. 171SELF_CCRD)
  • The naming convention for the eCheck is nnnSELF_ECHK (e.g. 171SELF_ECHK)
  • The naming convention for the Online Admissions Application credit card setup is nnnOAA_CCRD (e.g. 090SELF_CCRD)
  • The naming convention for the Online Admissions Application eCheck setup is nnnOAA_ECHK (e.g. 090SELF_ECHK)

To determine which configuration is relevant for your college first understand how your college accepts Online Payments in PeopleSoft, and whether the college accepts Credit Cards using CyberSource and/or accepts eChecks.

SF Merchants (Configuration Details Under Review)

An SF merchant (student financials merchant) is an entity within the Student Financials application that enables you to set up unique credit card and eCheck processing rules for different departments in your institution. You can use an SF merchant to set up credit card and eCheck processing for cashiering offices and student self-service functions. The SF merchant definition provides information needed by the ePayment service provider and defines what services it performs and what customer information the system displays on the payment page.

To process credit cards and eChecks in Student Financials, you must establish at least two SF merchant definitionsone for credit card support and one for eCheck support. If you have different processing rules for credit card processing in the cashiering office than you do in student self service, then you must establish multiple credit card SF merchants to handle these different processing rules.

Most likely colleges will establish one SF Merchant for each Payment Merchant that has been configured.

  1. SF Merchant ID  Enter a descriptive SF Merchant ID.  Should be prefixed with the college code.
  2. Description - Enter text to describe this SF Merchant.
  3. Process Option  Choose Credit Card or Electronic Check.
  4. Payment Merchant  Choose the appropriate Payment Merchant .
  5. Hosted payment Provider Should be checked.

Term Fees

Term fee codes are the most generalized method of establishing rates for tuition and fees. Each term fee code comprises one or more term fee definitions. Each term fee definition comprises one or more term sub fee codes. And each term sub fee code comprises one or more term sub fees. This multilevel structure provides flexibility and convenience.

By using different fee triggers and calculation methods at the lower levels, one term fee code can control how tuition is calculated for a wide range of unique student situations. Another term fee code can do the same for room and board combinations. Take the time to learn how term fee codes work and how you can use them to solve your most complex tuition calculation needs.

Tuition Groups

Tuition groups enable you to combine large groups of students who are charged, generally, the same set of fees under the same rules. Within the tuition group definition, you use adjustment codes, term fee, course list, and waiver definitions to fine-tune charges and adjustments (refund rules) so that students receive the correct charges for their unique situations. Because so much flexibility is in the components that compose the tuition group, you can define relatively few tuition groups to control all tuition calculations. Students might be assigned to a tuition group as they are activated for a term or be automatically assigned to the correct group using criteria that you have defined when tuition is calculated. You can also override the system-assigned tuition group on an individual student basis.

Definition

Used to gather large groups of students who are charged basically the same fees and tuition under a certain set of rules.  Within that tuition group, different term fees, adjustment calendars and waivers are assigned.  

Examples of College setup for 3 tuition groups:

1. UGRD: Tuition group contains all academic term fees.

2. CNED: Tuition group does not contain any term fees as CNED courses will all be setup with course/class fees.

3. DOC: Tuition for department of corrections students  does not contain any term fees as students are not charged any fees.

Course List Fees

Allows simplified setup to attach fees to a list of courses.  Course List Fees are dependent upon the conversion of the course catalog, which begins initially in the second round of conversion during implementation and if finalized by the third round of conversion during implementation.  Courses are then moved into the PeopleSoft production environment prior to deployment for colleges to begin cleanup and maintenance.  Once in production Course List Fees can be configured on the established courses.  From that point on Course List Fees will be maintained within PeopleSoft Production (ctcLink).

Cashier Office

Before you can run your cashiering process, you must first define the characteristics of your cashiering office. Your institution may have multiple cashiering offices, located on or off campus. Different cashiering offices often serve different roles in your institution. The Cashiering feature provides the flexibility to define different cashiering offices, each with its own set of cashiering rules and requirements.

Cashier Office

Create new cashiering offices and rules that go with that office.  Colleges will have one or more cashiering offices configured (e.g. MAIN, or MAINAR) and represent the Cashiering Offices that will be balanced by a cashier.
