Program Onboarding Process

To join CSDCAS, communications sciences and disorders programs go through a one-time, eight step onboarding process. The process will guide programs through the process of determining primary contacts, setting up application content, and understanding how to view applications.

Step 1: Return the completed and signed non-binding participation agreement to Megan Woods and Karen Jacobs to begin the onboarding and set-up process.

Step 2: Identify the primary faculty members and admissions staff contacts at your institution with whom CSDCAS should share important information and updates about the application.

Step 3: Notify your faculty members and admissions staff about the move to CSDCAS to help acclimate them to the new application process.

Step 4: Speak with your local IT and admissions staff about integrating CSDCAS data from WebAdMIT into any local student records systems used at your institution. Provide them with the Custom Export Layout document CSDCAS will make available later in the process.

Step 5: Share your participation in CSDCAS on your program’s website and in communication with prospective applicants. Language and suggestions will be provided during the onboarding process.

Step 6: Review the “Before Configuration” material to determine important factors and supplemental requirements for your program, such as the following:

  • Deadline date
  • Application banner image
  • Application homepage text
  • Letters of reference required
  • Supplemental application questions
  • Prerequisite courses
  • Additional documents required

Step 7: Complete the virtual, self-paced WebAdMIT basic training course (takes approximately 1 hour), to learn about the basic features of WebAdMIT.

Step 8: Review the CSDCAS Configuration manual and complete the virtual, self-paced WebAdMIT Configuration Portal training course to learn how to configure your application.
