The 3Cs of Admissions consist of assigning a checklist to an application (rarely used outside of IAS and Graduate School), generating communications to liaise with the applicant, and recording comments in relation to the application process. The 3Cs provide useful tools to support the application through its various stages of processing.

  • While these functions are part of the Campus Community menu, it is best to access them using the 3Cs icons, which appear on the final 5 tabs of the Maintain Applications pages. This brings across all of the relevant application data, saving you from having to re-enter it. 

The ‘3Cs’ consist of:

  • Assigning a checklist to an application to specify and keep track of the requirements that need to be fulfilled for a particular application to be processed.
  • Generating outgoing communications (using a standard letter template) to liaise with the applicant, and recording incoming communications from the applicant.
  • Recording comments in relation to the application process. Comments are used to keep a record of any relevant information regarding an applicant/application, take note of interactions with an applicant, and keep track of any information which may assist in processing the application. 

Access to the 3Cs is provided on the Maintain Applications, Application Program Data page through Communications, Checklists and Comments icons.

Clicking the icons opens the requested functionality in a new window or tab (depending on the setup of your browser), and will carry across useful data from the application such as the EmpID and Application Nbr.

When the new window/tab is no longer required it can be closed to return to the previous screen.
