Why opting for a higher education admissions software solution is “a must” 

There are plenty of reasons why educational institutions employ software solutions that help digitize and automate a host of administrative processes. Edutech has, evidently, made headway in recent years, giving schools and educational organizations powerful tools to run a host of operational tasks efficiently.

Keeping to the admissions theme, higher education institutions, regardless of their size or the academic disciplines offered, do have multiple admission-related challenges to deal with.  Whether it’s provisional admissions, undergraduate admissions or merely multiple admissions per period, things get a lot easier with the right systems in place. 

In what follows we’ll focus on DreamClass’ admission functionality and the ways it helps you improve on multiple administrative tasks.

With DreamClass, our higher education admissions software, you’ll enjoy the following additional functionality:

1. Create fully modifiable admission forms

Using our ready-made template, you can create digital application forms in seconds. Forms are easily modified, allowing you to add custom fields and give them a layout that works for your institution; go ahead and gather personal, contact-related and any other type of information you may need. 

2. Create forms to target for students or parents 

The admission forms you create may be designed to target not only students, but also parents and guardians. Parents may fill in their own and their student’s personal and contact information; evidently, this is useful if your institution enrolls younger students.

3. Make forms more user-friendly and more complete

You may add an introductory message to welcome your applicants; and, also, a privacy policy and terms of use, as discrete links, to resolve any queries that may arise. 

4. Preview admission forms 

Easily get a grasp of what your applicants will be dealing with when they submit their applications, to make sure everything flows as expected. 

5. Get notifications upon submissions 

You may link an admissions application form with your preferred email account, to receive notifications the moment students submit their admission forms. Hence, this is useful if you’re running a rolling admission policy and you use the first-come, first-serve approach in reviewing applications. 

6. Create public admissions to target new applicant audiences 

Once you create your public admission form you easily share your link with your audience to start receiving your applications. Public admission forms are helpful if you’re applying an open admissions policy. 

7. Create private admission forms to re-enroll students in a new period or term

With our higher educational admissions software — which also serves as a student information system — you’re able to link existing student profiles with multiple educational periods, enrolling them to the educational program. Students, on their part, all they have to do is simply select their preferred courses, with a few clicks, from their profiles.

8. Easily apply tuition fees upon admission

You may create a fees structure in advance, to facilitate the application of tuition fees as you enroll new students. You may choose to apply period fees and/or course fees. And. you can create custom fields to gather information as to whether a student is applying for or has already been offered a scholarship; and, thus, is excluded from specific fees. Finally, you may modify the corresponding period each type of fee will be applied to.
