Develop a custom application (e.g. a .NET Console Application) or use Microsoft Flow to create your SQL/SHAREPOINT integration. Flow has connectors for many platforms including SharePoint and SQL Server. Trigger your flow on a schedule or when a student row is created or updated in SQL.

If your SQL Server in installed on-premises then you also need the Microsoft on-premises data gateway for Flow to access the data there.

Using Flow might incur additional costs - check the available pricing plans for Microsoft flow.
