Add Deposit Paid Decision


Be sure to finalize an Admission Reply Form before moving on to post-decision rules.

If a change must be made to the form after your rules were built, be sure to re-test all rules based on that form because changes to the form may break existing rules.

After a matriculating student accepts your offer of admission and pays the enrollment deposit fee, a final decision code will be added automatically to the application tab of the person record:


Additionally, the Activities table on the application tab of the person record will update with a payment received activity:


Add Enrollment Deposit Received Activity

If an enrolling student pays the enrollment deposit, this rule adds the Deposit Paid decision to the application tab of the person record.

  2. Click New Rule.
  3. Enter the following Rule configurations in the popup window:
    • Name - Add Enrollment Deposit Received Decision
    • Population - Applications
    • Type - Decision
    • Trigger - Upon Update (Deferred)
    • Folder - Put your rule in the folder you created for your decision rules.
