Step 2

We recommend setting up a saved search via the Save Search Criteria link. The search criteria you use should be the following.

  • Search Type: Person
  • Search Parameter: NW_ADMISSIONS Click Search to go to the “Search Criteria”.

Step 3

Select Search Result Code NW_SM_RESULTS.

Step 4

Enter as many search criteria as you are able, tabbing out of each field as you go. Unlike a Google search, adding information in all of the fields does NOT limit your search—adding more values will expand your search and be more effective.

Adding search criteria. To make sure SES searches on all combinations of all values, click Search at the top of the page (and NOT the search buttons at the bottom of the page).

Step 5

Your search results appear in a new page. If there are many results, click on View All. If you think a result matches your applicant/student, highlight the Empl ID and copy it (either by right-clicking or by going to your browser’s Edit menu). You can paste this Empl ID later in the appropriate field.
