  2. 2. #7 CAMPUS- SPECIFIC CONTENT Students must have access to basic campus-specific information such as deadlines, selective program requirements, and contact info without the need to exit the CUNY Application or jump to an external website.
  3. 3. #6 SELF- REPORTED DATA The CUNY Application must feature the ability for students to self-report academic data such as SAT/ACT, Regents, and TOEFL test scores, grades, and class rank. Students should be made aware how this information will be used in the admission review and how verification will take place.
  4. 4. #5 MOBILE ACCESSThe CUNY Application must be optimized for mobile devices. Options include responsive web design, a mobile application, or a mobile mini-site.
  5. 5. #4 CLOUD INTEGRATION Students must have the ability to upload supporting documents to the CUNY Application directly from a number of popular cloud storage applications.
  6. 6. #3 SOCIAL MEDIA INTEGRATIONThe CUNY Application should provide a means for colleges to leverage social media. Social media buttons could allow students to share the excitement of applying to college with their friends and family while they are still “in the moment.”
  7. 7. #2 CUSTOM REPORTS Each college must have access to view real-time application data and reports that can be easily customized to suit the needs of the individual college.
  8. 8. #1 HOBSONS CRM SYNC A nightly sync between the CUNY Application and the current University-approved CRM is required in order to communicate with students throughout their college application progress.
