CSDCAS Configuration

Each spring you have an opportunity to configure your Program Materials section in CSDCAS for the upcoming cycle. The Configuration Portal for CSDCAS 2023-2024 opened on April 10, 2023. The deadline to complete configurations and submit your program for review is June 16, 2023. Completing configurations by this deadline is critical to ensure your program will launch on our opening day of July 17, 2023 and begin to receive applications. If you do not wish to launch by July 17th, your completion of the configuration portals may be completed later. If they are submitted for review after this initial deadline, we recommend submitting them at least 2 weeks before you wish to open to allow for time to review and provide edits.

On May 9th, 2023, we are hosting a webinar to discuss the changes in CSDCAS this year, as well as the rollover process and best practices for configuration.

Steps to Completing Configuration:

  1. Log into the Configuration Portal in the WebAdMIT Prelaunch site.
  2. Review and edit your program branding, instructional text, prerequisites, and questions, if applicable.
  3. Preview your program to make sure that it looks the way you want it to.
  4. Take it out of Preview mode and then “Submit for Review” by June 16, 2023.

Logging Into Prelaunch:

  • Only primary contacts will have access to the Prelaunch configuration portal and will be responsible for completing the configurations. Usernames and passwords are the same as they are for the regular WebAdMIT site. Primary contacts can provide Prelaunch access to others as needed.
  • If you have never logged into WebAdMIT before and this is your first WebAdMIT account, you must contact WebAdMIT Support via phone to set up a Prelaunch password. They can be reached Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM EST at 857-304-2020.

Accessing the Configuration Portal from the PreLaunch Environment

  • To access the CSDCAS 2023-2024 cycle, make sure you have selected the 23-24 cycle from the drop down menu in the upper right on your dashboard. Once the 23-24 cycle is selected, click "CAS Configuration Portal" from the left-hand navigation.
  • If nothing happens when clicking the link, please ensure you have any popup blockers disabled as the configuration portal opens in a new window.
  • Remember: the Prelaunch environment can only be used to access the Configuration Portal. Any other activity, such as adding users, setting up local statuses or email templates, etc, will NOT carry over to the live WebAdMIT environment.

Editing Your Program & Submitting Configurations

  • Once your programs are configured, preview and submit your program for review. The CAPCSD/CSDCAS team will review and approve programs after they are set to the “Review” status. This step must be completed for your program to go live in the CSDCAS application.

Important Configuration Options for the 23-24 Cycle:

In the Program Details page, there are a number of items that you will need to configure.

Open Date and Deadline Date (response required)

    • You may open your application no earlier than July 17. Please be sure to review and update the open date if needed.
    • You may choose a deadline between July 17, 2023 and July 1, 2024. Deadlines should be on the 1st or the 15th of the month. You should not choose January 1st.

Multi-Select Designations (response required)

    • If your university has more than one program in CSDCAS, you can determine if applicants may choose only one program to apply to or if they will be allowed to apply to as many as they would like on the configuration portal.
    • If you only have one program designation, then you should select the single program option.
