New Requirement Type: Disclaimer

A new Disclaimer requirement type has been added to the ApplyBoard Platform. Disclaimer requirements capture eligibility-related information, such as Specific Course and Course Grade requirements, and do not require any action to be taken. These disclaimer requirements are displayed on the application as soon as it is created, and help applicants understand their eligibility before submitting and paying for an application.

How It Works 

Students will start to see this new type of requirement on certain applications as we roll out the new requirements based on schools. Disclaimer type requirements will be shown on the application detail page under the Applicant Requirements tab. Applicants do not need to upload documents or answer questions for requirements as they’re designed to show information only. Instead, applicants should decide whether they should proceed with an application based on the eligibility criteria displayed in these requirements.

What’s Ahead

We are also working towards surfacing eligibility related requirement information on other pages, such as the Quick Search filters and Program Detail pages. Our goal, as always, is to help students make an informed decision when proceeding with an application.
