Modification Log:

04/25/16 A Gillett   Original  

9/19/19   P Dart       Revised the application to allow Kevin to see inprocess requests and

                                eliminate the use of Tuition Exchange.  Changed all application years to

                                be controlled by a gtvsdax value.

 

Brief Description

This web application allows faculty and staff to request begin the process of certifying and/or recertification of their child for tuition exchange, fachex, and/or tuition waivers.

 Administrator Perspective (Cheryl/Kevin)

 

Infoview Reports:

 

HR has 2 reports to use to identify individuals in the process of requesting/receiving tuition benefits:

 

ppsr048 – Identifies employees and their dependents, along with their ID number, College Indicator, employee date of hire and dependent age.   These items will help HR identify any dependents who have aged out of eligibility, employees eligibility based on hire date and if dependents have already been approved for tuition benefits. 

Any and all dependents must have pdrbene_college_ind set to Y if they are eligible for tuition benefits.   This indicator allows for annual recertification.   HR is responsible for maintaining this indicator.

 

ppsr061 – Identifies individuals receiving F2 benefits with missing pdrbene_college_ind set appropriately.

 

GTVSDAX values necessary for the process:

 

TBWVEND – sets the year for the applications/certifications being processed.  Set the gtvsdax_translation _code to the year value.    9/19/19 – Prior to this, the end date was used in the gtvsdax_internal_code but this is no longer relevant.

 

TBEXEND  – sets the end date for tuition exchange/fachex.   **No longer used since 9/19/19 when we converted to using the tuition exchange ez application process.

 

 

Application Status values:

Rejected -        State assigned when HR rejects an initial waiver/exchange/fachex

Certification.

Approved –     State assigned when HR approves the initial waiver/exchange/fachex

                        certification.

Submitted –    State of the initial certification submitted by the employee to be reviewed

                        by HR.

Reviewed –     Statue of exchange/fachex application.  No longer used since converting to

                        use of the tuition exchange EZ application process.

 

 

 

Admin view of the tuitionbenefit web application:

 

Both Kevin and Cheryl have a different view of the data. 

In center of the screen, the Admin Requests appear. 

 

The In Process Requests need to be processed by Cheryl.  Double clicking on the row will open the Tuition Waiver/Init Cert or Recertification application so the input by the employee can be reviewed.   There is an additional portion of the application that allows for Cheryl to approve or deny the benefit.   When she either approves or denies the application, an email is sent to the employee with the following:

 

 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Your tuition benefit request has been processed. Please login to the tuition benefits web application at https://apps.canisius.edu/tuitionbenefit in order to review the status of your request.

If you have any questions pertaining to your tuition benefits, please contact: Kevin Smith (smithk@canisius.edu).

 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

 

 

Additionally, the Tuition Waiver/Init Cert or Recertification will appear in the Processed Requests list with the status of Approved or Denied.

 

Kevin can use this view with the Tuition Exchange/Fachex application to determine if the employee qualifies for the benefit.
