Student Profile Data Files

Every few hours, a web service runs to check for eligible records, similar to the application data sharing service.

The data is sent to the Web Service endpoint in your database for the source format and imported data if it finds that a student meets the following criteria:

  • A registered student has indicated they wish to share their data with colleges.

AND

  • attended a visit with that college scheduled through Slate.org.

 

These data files appear in Upload Dataset Sources in your Slate database after your scheduled Slate.org visit has concluded.

If a student does not yet exist in your Slate database, you may create a new person record. Existing records match on the following fields:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Birthdate
  • Email 
  • School CEEB

Additionally, students will be added as registrants to the corresponding Slate.org visit in your Slate database.
