Universal Advisor Portal Enhancements

    State Drop-down Options

This enhancement is automatically available for use by all CASs and participating programs. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. Contact your Account Manager for more information.

When advisors request a Universal Advisor Portal account, they must identify their institution’s state. This State drop-down is now limited to US states, Puerto Rico, and Canadian provinces. Previously, it included states in foreign countries.

WebAdMIT Enhancements

The following enhancements are available for WebAdMIT as part of Release 7.

    Program Code Field Added to PDF Manager

This enhancement is automatically available for use by all CASs and participating programs. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. Contact your Account Manager for more information.

You can now select the Program Code field when naming the following document types in the PDF Manager:

  • Full Application PDF
  • Program Level Applicant Uploaded Document
  • Electronically Submitted Evaluation (the Program Code field only populates with data if evaluations are requested through the Program Materials section. If evaluations are requested under Supporting Information, the Program Code field will have no data.)
    Lookup Table Updates

This enhancement is automatically available for use by all CASs and participating programs. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. Contact your Account Manager for more information.

Some CASs ask applicants to identify their geographic area for HRSA data. The lookup value for "Large Town(population 10,000 to 49,999 population)" had an extra parenthesis removed from the end. If you pull this data into an external SIS/ERP system, you must update your data integration.

    Daily Assignment Notification Email Update

This enhancement is automatically available for use by all CASs and participating programs. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. Contact your Account Manager for more information.

Previously, when a reviewer was assigned an Assignment in WebAdMIT, they received an email the next day, listing all Assignments given to them, regardless if the reviewer already completed them. Now reviewers only receive the daily Assignment email if they have incomplete Assignments from the previous day.

Coming Soon!

Please review the list of upcoming events, including scheduled downtime/maintenance, product updates, and regional training opportunities.
