UW Seattle Undergraduate Admissions Going Paperless for Domestic Freshmen Applications

This summer, UW Seattle Undergraduate Admissions will begin using a new, paperless application review system for domestic freshmen arriving winter quarter 2016. The pilot of this smaller pool of applicants will help the office prepare to review the 37,000 freshmen applications (28,000 domestic) it expects to receive this fall for autumn quarter 2016. The new system, built on Dynamics CRM and Ellucian Recruiter, provides a streamlined process supported by online forms, electronic workflow and reporting dashboards, increasing efficiencies while reducing paper use. UW-IT partnered with UW Seattle Undergraduate Admissions on this effort.
