When you create a Program, you set up a few things that shape how the Program is presented in the Enroll Form. You also get to decide the cost of the Program. This cost is set up in what is called an "Enrollment Model." Enrollsy has three different types of Enrollment Models:

  • Simple - Allows for enrollment into a Program only. Class assignment is done by an Admin or Instructor with permission.

  • Days per Week - Allows enrollment into the specific day(s) of the week your rules allow for. Each Class in a Days per Week Program is comprised of the days of the week.

  • Classes - Allows Class selection to be made at the time of enrollment.

NOTE: Be careful when editing a Program's Enrollment Model. If there are any existing Payment Plans on that Program, they will no longer appear. If you MUST change an Enrollment Model, you will have to manually add back any existing Payment Plans.

Simple Enrollment Model

The Simple Enrollment Model is great for quickly enrolling students into a class, without the need to provide any additional options or selections.

Using this model, students will be enrolled in a class, however, the class selection will need to be performed by an Administrator or Instructor. Enrollment is a straightforward process. All you need to do is fill out a form, click the enroll button and you are done. All you have to include in the setup is the following:

  • When the Program runs (days per week and/or specific dates, including a Holiday Calendar)

  • Pricing is usually Fixed Cost and includes the TOTAL cost for the entirety of the Program (start to finish)

  • Add Payment Plans (payment events) and/or Proration (enrollees can specify start dates (first prorated date); you choose the Charge Items/fees to be prorated)

See "About the Simple Enrollment Model" for more detailed instructions on setting up a Program using this model.

Days per Week Enrollment Model

The Days per Week Enrollment Model is a useful tool that allows you to customize enrollment in your programs and classes. This model offers more flexibility in terms of the days your students can register for.

Each Class in a Days per Week Program is designed to include the specific day(s) of the week you have chosen. For example, you might set up a program to only include Mondays and Thursdays. Then, each Class in that program would only involve Mondays and Thursdays.

To set up this model, you enter the following:

  • When the Program runs (days per week and/or specific dates, including a Holiday Calendar)

  • Pricing is usually Fixed Cost

  • Set enrollment parameters (what is the total Program cost for each day

  • Add Payment Plans (payment events) and/or Proration (enrollees can specify start dates (first prorated date); you choose the Charge Items/fees to be prorated)

Once you have configured your Days per Week enrollment model, you can easily manage and keep track of the days your students are enrolled. To learn more about setting up the Days per Week Enrollment Model and the benefits it offers, please view this support article: "About the Days per Week Enrollment Model."

Classes Enrollment Model

The Classes model is a great way to manage enrollment fees. It applies pricing based on Class(es) selection during enrollment or Class(es) assignment by an Admin User after enrollment. This can be incredibly helpful if you have multiple classes of varying prices. Fees other than tuition can apply at either the Class or Program level, depending on the settings chosen. It's important to note that fees can be managed at both levels, so it's important to choose the setting that suits you best.

You can also decide if students can choose their own classes and how those classes are presented. If you want to give your students some choice but still maintain control, you can choose to assign classes to them after enrollment.

Set up this model by entering the following information:

  • Class View - List, multi-list, week, or month

  • Require a minimum or maximum number of Classes

  • Pricing - Per Class (applies pricing based on the cost of each Class) or number of Credits (applies pricing based on the number of credits enrolled. You define what a "credit" is and you set the credit count for each Class).

  • Program enrollment fees (per class pricing only) - Fees charged at the program level

  • Enrollment parameters (for credit pricing only; add the credits category

  • Add Payment Plans (payment events) and/or Proration (enrollees can specify start dates (first prorated date); you choose the Charge Items/fees to be prorated).
