  • Admit System: Beyond the Basics for Admitting Department Users Emily Wang, Katy Klemme, Lori Cottle, Jennifer Mason

    Graduate admissions at Stanford University is a diverse process. Each of the 66+ graduate admitting departments set their own application deadlines, receive applications directly from their applicants, determine and manage their admissions workflow, set admission requirements and offer admission and financial aid. There is no one size fits all approach and therefore each department utilizes Admit in their own way. The goal of this session is to provide users with tips and tricks to tailor Admit for their department. The content will be applicable to a variety of users with different needs. Topics to be covered include: managing applications (pool setup, triggers, column & layout customization, supplemental pages); communication via Admit (checklist, emailing users, decision letters); and evaluating applications (review guides, evaluation reports).
