online application question
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
Hello Educause members,
The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland runs a summer institute program that requires prospective participants to fill out an application package consisting of:
-2 faculty recommendation letters (a form)
-Official college transcript
-Resume or CV
Currently, the intake process is all manual. Applicants assemble their packages at their location and mail the documents to UMD. The process is beginning to break down as the ever increasing volume of applications is straining the 2 resources assigned to this program (we received almost 500 applications this year).
We’re looking to move this process to an online platform that is designed to handle application submissions and a review process.
There seem to be so many of these types of programs out there that I don’t know where to start. Any guidance would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Director, Office of Academic Computing Services
