Process: Add/Edit a Course Form

Course Forms makes it easy for Students to apply/enrol directly into a course. Using the Course Forms Feature means that you can throw away the paper-based application and put the onus on the student to submit their information directly to the institution. 

Once submitted, this form can automatically create a new Party record and then apply an Enrolment record against the student's file. 

The Form Builder is not limited to Course Applications. Institutions can also use this tool to collect information from prospects, feedback from alumni or even allow students to request services.


Add a Course Form

To add a Course Form, follow these steps:

  1. Name - Provide the Course Form with a unique name for easy future reference. 
  2. Branding - There is the option to apply a custom brand per Course Form. This is a great way to white-label the Course Application Forms or even apply joint branding. This is customisable per Course Form.
  3. Location - This field references the institution's pre-existing Locations. To add or edit to these locations go to: Administration >> Lookups >> Locations/Facilities. If this Course Form is linked to multiple courses with different locations, you can leave this option blank.

This is not recommended if you have a detailed enrolment process, e.g. Interviews need to be completed, eligibility needs to be checked, or AVETMISS details need to be confirmed. This checkbox is more suited for non-accredited training.  
  7. Auto-Confirm Services - Checking this box means that all applications submitted will automatically create a Demand Record against the Students Record.
  8. Hide from Student Portal - If the institution uses the Student Portal, they can choose whether to hide the Course Application from the Portal or make it readily available.

    When enabled, the Allow Pay Later will be displayed on the 'Payment' step of the Form. Students can then choose to Pay Now or Pay Later.
    To use the Payments function, there must be a pre-existing integration with a Third-Party Payment Gateway.
