Application to Major (SP16)
The application to major is an upcoming project to manage the process of a student applying to their major. Currently it is slotted for development in Spring 2016. However, some work has already been done to build tools to help advisors prototype the process in Qualtrics.
This application primarily aims to improve the experience for students, departmental, and college advisors. However, it has secondary goals which include improving outcomes for students and helping to catch problems early on. For example, as program entry requirements go up, many students find themselves unable to gain acceptance to their desired majors. This application should help catch these issues before they become intractable problems by streamlining the process and increasing communication between offices about applicants.
