Create Alternate Program Offer


Concept


Steps:

  1. Begin by navigating to the Alternate Program Addition page.

     

    Click the Student Admissions link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Processing Applications link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Alternate Program Addition link.

    Step 3
  4. You can run this process by searching for an existing Run Control ID or you can add a new value. Creating a Run Control ID that is relevant to the report may help you remember it for future use.

     

    Click the Add a New Value tab.

    Step 4
  5. A Run Control ID is an identifier that, when paired with your User ID, uniquely identifies the process you are running. The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a process is run. This ensures that when a process runs in the background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.

     

    Enter the desired information into the Run Control ID field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "ALTOFFER"
    .

    Step 5
  6. Click the Add button.

    Step 6
