Recommending an Applicant to a Different Program

This document provides directions for recommending an applicant to a different program in Applicant Review. It is best practice to let the student know that you are recommending the student for the program before doing so in Applicant Review; that way, if the student has no interest in the new program, the program can just decline admission.


  1. Select the student you'd like to Recommend; click on Application Actions drop down and then click Recommend

To which programs can I recommend?

In Applicant Review, you can only recommend an applicant to other programs that you administer in Applicant Review. If an applicant would like to be considered for a different program that you do not administer, then the applicant will have to fill out a new application.
