Dal launches new application portal 


Dalhousie University has launched a new application portal that offers a more intuitive interface, better communications, and reduced service times. “It’s truly a ‘one-stop shop’ for students to track their admission process and stay informed about all the events and supports available to them,” said Dal Interim Associate Registrar Ann MacDonald. Applicants will be able to see details about their application, such as status updates, while the university will be able to offer more targeted, personalized outreach and make more strategic decisions. The system’s improvements are intended to help reduce incidents where prospective students abandon their applications before submission and increase university enrolment.
