Recruit Students

NOTE:
Recruit Students functionality is restricted to Recruiters only.

Recruit Students is an area of the Lab where recruiters can manage the information gathered from prospective students who have initiated contact with their school via the Transferology student application.

When exploring transfer options within Transferology, the student has the option to Request Information about a particular school or program. Any student request, regardless of information requested, is copied or routed to the Recruiter.

In the Transferology Lab, from the Advising & Recruiting tab, click the Recruit Students function:

Recruit Students Page

The Recruit Students page provides student information to recruiters. The majority of this page is table-formatted student information (two tabs: Active Leads and Archived Leads). Recruiters may filter this student information, as well as export information to a Microsoft Excel file:

Student information is contained within two tabs on the Recruit Students page:

  1. Active Leads
  2. Archived Leads

The Recruiter may toggle between tabs to track where a student is in the recruiting process.

Active Leads Tab

The Active Leads tab (default) provides a listing of information for all of the students who have initiated contact with the recruiter's school listed. Many of the text fields and buttons on the Active Leads tab are hyperlinks:

NOTE:
Student may be returned to the list of active recruits by navigating to the Archived Leads tab and clicking the Archive button again under the Un-Archive column:

Filter

Since the table of student information on the Recruit Students page can be quite extensive, filtering allows the recruiter to control the display of the information.

Filter Field

The Filter Field is above the student information table, where the recruiter may type in a student name, email address, or program to filter students.

Filter Box

The Filter box allows for filtering by date range field, with additional checkbox parameters for filtering by student needs: AdmissionsFinancial AidCampus VisitVeteran's ResourcesPrograms, Needs Advising, and Verified e-mail Address.

Date Range

Click in the date range field to view a drop-down menu of common choices:

  • Today
  • Yesterday
  • Last 7 Days
  • Last 30 Days
  • This Month
  • Last Month
  • Custom Range
NOTE:
If you are not seeing the results you expect in the Student Recruit Info table, check the date range filter. Excessive filtering can severely restrict match results. The default setting for the data range filter is the past 30 days.

Some of these options (e.g., Custom Range) will prompt a monthly calendar to pop-out on the left:
