Adding Applications Manually with a Fee Waiver

Always run the Search/Match process prior to adding a New Application. The creation of duplicate IDs will negatively impact the student and is highly detrimental to records, especially in a global system.

When adding an admission application (Quick Admit, Add Application) to an existing EMPLID:

  • If you copy/paste an EMPLID, you may have noticed that when you  copy/paste an EMPLID it can come along with an extra space and tab.  Please keep an eye out and delete those extra spaces before and after an  EMPLID before saving your record. If you save with the extra space/tab,  it creates a NEW EMPLID (a duplicate!) that includes that space/tab.
  • If you manually enter an EMPLID, please confirm it is the same as  the intended EMPLID before saving. If you save it and it is not the same  and intended EMPLID, it can create a new EMPLID (or associate data with  the wrong EMPLID).
  • When you get a warning that an SSN is already in use, heed it! It is  a clue that you may unintentionally be creating a new EMPLID. Stop and  figure out who else has the SSN on their record: Are they the same  person that you are adding to the system?

Bypass an Address

Sometimes, a student will provide a valid address that isn't recognized by Clean Address. This often happens when an apartment or home is under new construction. In cases where you've verified that a student's address is accurate and the address isn't recognized by Clean Address, bypass Clean Address by following the steps listed below.

The Clean Address database is updated every few months (with data from USPS), so colleges do not need to report addresses that are not recognized by Clean Address.
