Increase Inquiry Traffic with a Responsive Applicant Experience

Because, on average, more than 50% of website traffic comes from mobile devices, Finalsite Apply's applicant interface is responsive — meaning families can easily take the next step in the application process from any device.

Schedule Tours and Interviews Online

Simple scheduling of tours and interviews keeps your team and prospective families organized.  The Tours and Interview Calendar lets you:

  • Sync with iCal—great for teams on the go
  • View your schedule at a glance with a color-coded key

And, since families can schedule their own tours, you'll reduce the time you and your staff spend on the phone.

Stay On Task With Organized Checklists

Checklists keep you and your school's applicants on task. The Application Checklist lets families see where they stand with an easy-to-follow list of what they've completed and what's left to do before their application package is ready for submission.

For admissions staff, a self-populated checklist in the Dashboard keeps important tasks organized.
