National CAS Schedules
Some institutions participate in multiple national CASs, which are CASs that are affiliated with an association, typically within the health professions (e.g., dental, pharmacy, physical therapist, etc.). If your institution is one of these, you can access important CAS milestones below.
Be sure to check out our additional help content for each of these milestones:
- Configuration Portal Opens: access the Configuration Portal Quick Start Guide to get started configuring your programs.
- Program Configurations Due: submit your program configurations for review and approval by your AM, CSM, and association client.
- Applicant Portal Opens: learn how a CAS manages applicant materials and processes in the Applicant Processing Reference Guide.
- Applicant Portal Processing Ends: review a CAS's cycle close and its final processing dates in our Applicant Processing Reference Guide.
Note that you can run a CAS data dictionary on-demand and no longer need to wait until the Draft Data Dictionary Available milestone date.
