This is because your Current Admissions Year is set for the Current year. For example if you are in 2015 - 2016 for your Current Year and the Current Admissions Year is also set for 2015 - 2016.

When you create a Inquiry via:
  1. onBoard
  2. Candidate
  3. Create New Inquiry
Even though you are selecting the 2016 - 2017 Entering year, when you go to
  • onBoard
  • Process
  • Process Inquiries
You can see it is changing the entering year to 2015 - 2016 as this is designated as your current year.

To change this if you navigate to:
  1. Core
  2. School
  3. Years and Terms
  4. Change the Year dropdown to the next year (in the example 2016 - 2017)
  5. Click Edit
  6. Current Admissions Year: select Yes
This will now allow prior and current years to be selected and kept when processing the inquiry.
