Eligibility Quiz

The Eligibility Quiz feature allows administrators to create a form for the initial stage of a single process or for multiple processes to determine eligibility for those processes. Eligibility is determined based on rules attributed to the Eligibility form.

  • For Example: If the following question is added to the eligibility form a rule can be attributed to that question that may determine eligibility if the cumulative GPA is greater than a certain grade point number:

  • The eligibility form comes with a description group at the top of the form to include a description of the eligibility form and who should be completing the form. For example, there might be a separate form for high school students and one for adults. The description associated with an Eligibility form is similar to a process description.
  • Examples of eligibility questions are:
    • Major or general area of study
    • Gender
    • GPA
    • State or county of residence
    • Race/Ethnicity
    • Extra Curricular Activities
  • Following is an example Eligibility Form:

  • Once an eligibility form has been created for a process then eligibility rules can be added to the form. The rules are attributed by process and, therefore, the same form can be used for multiple processes but the rules for each form can be different.
    • To add rules you must go back to the Update Process page which is accessible by clicking on the name of the process.
    • Then click on the Eligibility tab

    • Click on the Add AND/OR Rule Group button

  • Add a rule group name and then select the appropriate operator (AND / OR)
    • In this example the operator is OR. The definition of this rule group is that if the applicant participates in Football or Basketball then they will pass this rule group.

    • While building the Eligibility Form and adding the Eligibility Rules the Eligibility stage should be Inactive and the form/rules should also be inactive.


  • Once the Eligibility Form has been built and the rules added and tested then you will want to turn the form/rule on (Active) and that will also change the Eligibility stage to Active.


  • When the Eligibility Quiz is activated the process is automatically made restricted. The Access code can be used to allow applicants to apply even if they do not pass the Eligibility Quiz. The Access code will also allow applicants to apply for a process without taking the Eligibility Quiz.
    • If the process did not already have an access code, one will automatically be generated for you.
    • Note that you may go in and update the access code at any point
