The Admissions Checklist is comprised of the items that a parent needs to complete in order for their student to be considered a status of Application Complete, as well as the items that your internal team needs to complete or upload for the student to move into this status.

Just like the Inquiry Checklist, the Admissions Checklist is dynamic, which means different items will appear on the checklist based on the rules/criteria set up and what is submitted on the student application.

Additional Checklist Features:

  • Custom business rules for checklist items such as setting certain checklist items to only display for international students, boarding students, etc.

  • Custom adhoc admissions forms such as a personal statement form and custom teacher recommendation forms.

  • Internal facing forms such as an Interview Notes form.

  • Checklist items with calendars for scheduling appointments and events.

For applying families, checklist items can be marked as complete after a parent or internal admin/user performs certain actions on them. The following types of actions can be completed by a parent on the admissions checklist, based on the specific settings and checklist items you have available:

You may also choose to have any of these items as internal-only or able to be completed by your team only.
