What is a conditional application and how does it work? Is it different than the General Application? Who might use a conditional application?
A Conditional Application is used by many institutions to target a specific group of applicants as a follow-up or additional step beyond the General Application. It is an additional application that can have its own details, questions, qualifications, start and end dates, reviews, and assigned scopes.
For example, if you have a specific college that might need to have its own application and set of questions in order to target qualified applicants that would not be addressed solely by the General Application, for example a College of Business or Engineering, and you want these applicants to have to complete this step before they are matched to or recommended to those targeted opportunities, a Conditional Application may be a good fit.
