User must manually type in degree program code

User can choose a degree program from a series of hierarchical drop-down lists (college/major/degree). NOTE: the cascade option requires that information be encoded in the Degree Programs within the DPROG table.

*  Two of the settings–Dropdown and Cascade–allow additional settings that influence what data is displayed in the drop-downs:

  1. The first additional setting determines the dpstatus value(s) that degree programs must have to be included in the drop-down list. Options include "W", "P", "T", and "A". Use as many as needed, separated by a comma (,).
  2. The second additional setting determines which columns of the degree program will be displayed in the drop-down. Options include "dprog", "dpitle1", "dptitle2", and "webtitle". Use as many as needed, separated by a comma (,).
  3. The third additional setting ONLY applies to the Cascade setting. This setting determines the drop-downs that will be displayed. Options include "college", "major", and "degree". Use as many as needed, separated by a comma (,).
