The disclosure agreement that advisors must agree to when creating a Universal Advisor Portal account has been updated to:

I agree not to share my UAP username and password with any individual and will immediately notify webadmitsupport@liaisonedu.com should my employment status change or I no longer meet the UAP eligibility requirements, as defined. 
  • I agree that the information contained in the UAP will only be used for the purposes of counseling students and compiling aggregate statistics for internal institutional use. I agree not to share any individual, identifiable applicant data or decisions with applicants, health profession programs/schools, or any other outside parties at any point. The only users authorized to disclose applicant data and decisions are applicants and individual health profession programs/schools. 
  • I agree not to disclose or share individual applicant data with other individuals or offices at the institution for student recruitment purposes into other programs, unless explicitly granted permission by the student.
  • I agree to contact the appropriate association/organization and request explicit permission to use applicant data in the UAP for research purposes before beginning the research or disseminating any findings. I understand that no association/organization is obligated to approve UAP-related research requests and that data use policies and procedures vary by profession.
  • Access to and use of the information is granted only by your agreement to the above stipulations.

Sharing WebAdMIT Across Multiple Programs

WebAdMIT allows institutions to customize admissions processes for each of their programs. If you have multiple WebAdMIT users managing multiple programs, WebAdMIT becomes a "shared space," where these users who can configure the software have access to every program's settings and templates. This can sometimes seem challenging to navigate. Read this guide for a shared space example, as well as best practices you can apply at your institution. 

Deferring Applicants via Transfer Settings

For CASs that offer Deferred Applicants as part of the Transfer Settings process, this guide provides information on how this process works, and some best practices to keep in mind.

Coming Soon!

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