Implementing a streamlined graduate admissions process and adding support for online submission of letters of recommendation will enable us to make decisions more quickly and serve more students, as well as move towards a paperless environment. The current manual process involves multiple departments, all with different deadlines, procedures, and requirements, the end result of which is that significantly fewer students enroll in classes than are admitted (67% in Fall 2011).
8/03/12: This project has been cancelled as a standalone project and incorporated into the Admissions Workflow Automation project.
5/8/12: Project approved and scheduled to start 5/15/12. In the interests of efficiency and of better serving students, Scott Hagg has agreed to integrate the existing Admissions Workflow Automation project with the three new Admissions projects - EOP, International and Graduate Admissions. This will delay the existing project a little, but will result in a better overall outcome. Required agreement on common improved processes may take the summer to work through; we hope to be able to use Nolij consultants to help with this project.
