Using Kentico, any editor can create quick and simple online forms for your users to fill out. Once a form is generated following the instructions as laid out in this document
, that form can be placed onto any page as a standard widget.
All the data collected is available for your review in the same location you went to create the form initially and if required, you can secure that form and its data against non-authorized individuals.
Authorized users can create additional financial assistance items that are listed on the financial assistance finder
by following the instructions laid out in this guide
In order to meet the needs of our various academic programs and centers, the web team created a simple form for you to enter in all your associated faculty members. Details of the form and associated instructions can be found in this guide
If you find that the form doesn't entirely meet your needs, please feel free to contact the Help Desk
with details of your requirements and the web team will be in contact with you.
