The field that is mentioned in the error message is required for a record to be created in The Education Edge. A record cannot be created in EE until the requirement is met. The field does not have to be required in EE, in order for the field to be required on the form in NetCommunity. Follow the steps below to unrequire the field in EE: 
  1. Log in to The Education Edge as a supervisor user
  2. Choose the correct module (Admissions Office for application forms or Registrar's Office for reenrollment forms)
  3. Click Configuration Fields
  4. Choose the correct type of record that is mentioned in the error message (Applicant, Individual, or Student)
  5. Find the field mentioned in the error message
  6. Unmark the required checkbox for the field
  7. Attempt to process the form again
The application should now be able to be processed. In order to not have this happen again, we can leave this field unmarked as required in The Education Edge or we can add this field onto the Online Admissions form. 

Note: If the field is Applicant ID, the field must be unrequired in order to process the application. We cannot add this field as an option on the Online Application form. This is because the Applicant ID is automatically generated after the application is processed. If the applicant ID field is added to the form, the generation of the applicant ID will not work in The Education Edge. The applicant ID can manually be changed on the applicant record in The Education Edge after the application has been processed.
