Manual Designations in WebAdMIT
Some application services allow admissions users to add additional designations, or programs, to an applicant. This causes WebAdMIT to treat the applicant as if they'd applied to the added program without the applicant needing to return to their application and submit on their side.
This is generally done when the admissions user would like the applicant to be considered for a program other than the one(s) he or she applied to. Where applicable, this also prevents the applicant from being required to pay an additional application fee. This feature should be used with caution, as adding a manual designation cannot be undone within WebAdMIT.
Adding Manual Designations
To add Manual Designations, an admissions user will need to have access to the Designations panel enabled in their Work Group.
- Navigate to the Designations panel on the desired Applicant Details Page.
- Depending on your CAS, you'll find an Add Designation button or a green plus sign in the Designation column.
- In the window that appears, select the desired designation and click Submit.
- The new designation appears with "Manual" listed as its Application Status.
Note that admissions users with access to the newly added designation, but without access to the applicant-selected designation(s), will only see limited information. The applicant appears to them as "Unverified" and the full application PDF is not available.
