Applicant uploaded documents are now separated into two subpanels under the Documents panel: Applicant Uploaded Documents Application Level and Applicant Uploaded Documents Program Level.

Updates to College Coursework Credit Value Entries

Winter

For CASs that collect college coursework, the Applicant Portal will be updated to allow applicants to enter course credit values in one numeric field. This field will also limit applicants from entering more than two digits after a decimal.

Currently, applicants are required to enter course credit values in two fields: a numeric field for the whole course credit and a drop-down including preset fractional values.
