Program Requirements

Under this section, you can activate and deactivate the custom Configuration Portal features for a CAS. Programs can then choose to configure these options in the Configuration Portal.

  1. Select if each feature is on. 
  2. If the feature is activated, the name turns blue. You can edit the name by clicking on the text and entering the new name. If you update the name, it automatically updates the name of the section in the Configuration and Applicant Portals for any program already using that feature.

Note that if you need to enable the College Transcripts and Coursework feature in the Configuration Portal, you must activate it in Colleges Attended under the Academic History section. Review the table to learn how an applicant's final application status and GPAs are affected.

Note that once programs configure their program-level evaluations, this feature can't be deactivated.

Documents

Here you can activate program-level documents, which are listed in the Program Materials section. If you choose this option, you can create as many document types as needed. Programs can then choose to collect documents, which document types, and the number of documents.
