The fields utilized on this screen will depend on the institution's business processes. Not all fields are required. Most fields may be added to the application form itself for the applicant to complete. Many fields also appear on the applicant and/or student finder for global searching.
Person-based Admissions Fields
Admissions Progress Code: The status of the applicant. The typical business flow is Inquired > Applied > Accepted > Deposited. All available admissions codes appear in this drop down menu and may not be changed as they are tied to the operation of the Campus Cafe system.
Admissions Residence Code: Controls billing rules for applicants who are will live in institutional billed housing. It is important to understand the flow of information from this field as it affects the actual housing request in the housing module. The value in the residence code will be passed on to the housing module at such time as is designated by Custom Control AD100 Sequence 1 Parameters 1-8. If the data in this field is changed by admissions after the data has been passed to the housing module, then the admissions office should also change the value in the housing module or notify the housing staff.
Admissions Counselor: The individual responsible for managing the application. The selection here determines which users admissions dashboard displays the student. The counselor may be manually assigned or automatically assigned using round robin rules.
Matriculate Code: Designate a student as matriculating or non-matriculating. The National Student Clearinghouse Report will exclude any student set to Non-Matriculated if configured to exclude non-matriculating students. Campus Cafe recommends not adjusting these values as changing or adding to these values will cause significant programming, reporting and other impacts
Transfer Code: These system-defined values designate the applicant's highest level of completed education. This value drives the delivered IPEDS report. Campus Cafe recommends not adjusting these values as changing or adding to these values will cause significant programming, reporting and other impacts
Continuing Ed Code: This box is populated to a Y or G if on the admissions portal config the CE code is specified as Y or G. Options may not be changed.
Admissions Part Time Code: The applicant's intended enrollment level. The financial aid module may be configured to utilize this field during packaging. Campus Cafe recommends not adjusting these values as changing or adding to these values will cause significant programming, reporting and other impacts. The part-time code is copied over from Admissions to the degree row when it's created upon acceptance to a program. If this field is left blank, the Part Time Code in MSParm PARTTIME 1-1 will be used.
Financial Aid Code: Indicate whether the applicant plans to apply for financial aid. This field is only used to indicate that a prospect is interested in financial aid and should never be used to indicate that aid has been processed, received, etc. Campus Cafe recommends not adjusting these values in most cases as this is a static field, as changing or adding to these values will overwrite the current plans on the student for reporting purposes.
Religious Pref: The applicant's religion. Options set using STParm SBRLPR
Admissions Site Code: The site for which the applicant is applying. The site may be physical, virtual or for internal organizational purposes. The application fee, enrollment deposit and housing deposit may be associated with different financial transaction codes depending on the site.
