9.2 Adding Applications Manually

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for adding an application manually in ctcLink.

Audience: Admissions staff.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZC AD App Entry
  • ZZ AD App Entry

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

Manual Application Entry

You must always run the Search/Match process before adding a New Application. The creation of duplicate IDs is highly detrimental to Records and Financial Aid, 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?

Application Entry

  1. Perform a Search/Match
    • After you've performed a Search/Match and have determined that the student does not already have an academic record at your institution, then you would enter their EMPLID (ctcLink ID) into the ID field. For example, a student at your college might have a student ID because they were enrolled in Continuing Education classes--a Cont Ed Academic Career. The student wants to enroll in classes under the Academic Career; therefore, you would enter their ID into the ID field and select Academic Career. 
  2. The Application Entry page displays. Enter the following information:
  3. Application Nbr. Do not change; accept the default value of eight zeros.
  4. ID. Allow to default to "NEW" unless adding an application for an existing student with an EMPLID.
    • If you have access, you can verify if the student has a student program plan at your institution. You will only add an application if the student does not have a record at your institution.
