Online Application Management

Online application management allows you to access student application information from anywhere at any time. Easy searching, filtering and tagging allow you to move applicants smoothly through the process, meaning your time can be spent on more important things like recruitment and making personal connections with families.

Staff members from any department can be involved in the application process with granular permissions giving access to only the parts of the system they need. Tasks and notes provide an easy to follow workflow and communication trail when it comes time to make a decision.

Streamlined Re-Enrolment

Manage Re-Enrolment with OpenApply in only 4 easy steps! First import current students and customise online re-enrolment forms and notifications with the help of OpenApply’s friendly support team. Next send your re-enrolment notifications in one click and watch as your re-enrolment chart changes from blue to green as parents confirm!

Parents appreciate a smoother process with one click to login and fill forms online. Families can confirm for multiple children at once and forms are pre-filled with existing information to streamline the process. Re-enrolment fees can even be collected online for an all-in-one process.

OpenApply’s friendly support team is on call around the globe whenever you have a question. Whether you want to know how to edit a form, start re-enrolment, or just need advice on how to adapt your process to the digital world our team is happy to help both by phone and email.
