XML Admissions Application Approved as PESC Standard

The Board of Directors and Steering Committee of PESC - the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council, are pleased to announce the release of the XML Admissions Application as approved education community standards.

The Admissions Application standard can be used by any number of organizations to send admissions application data and information to colleges and universities.

"PESC provides a balanced and neutral environment in which policymakers and business leaders can work together with data experts across various sectors to create and maintain tools and standards that enable efficient data exchange and reporting," stated Michael D. Sessa, PESC President & CEO. "The value-add and strength of PESC have always originated from the leadership of PESC's membership - that is volunteers who invest time and resources and believe in bringing true interoperability to the higher education lifecycle."
