What I have learned

I’ve learned that it is very important to be knowledgeable about Admissions policies and many other protocols 


In this module I was able to learn about the different advertising methods that each institution uses to attract that future student to enroll in our institution. I also learned that I should have knowledge about what study program offers, what we offer as an institution and the information I need to know to be able to answer any type of student concern 


From this module I learned that I must take into account that in the interview process I must make sure to have all the information on hand for any possible question that the student or parent may have when signing the contract. 


in this module i learned that as admission representatives we must to know absolutely everything about the institution in which we work in order to be able to give clear and precise information to that future candidate (student) since in the prequalificaton process it is the moment when where the future student makes the decision whether to preceed to enroll or cancel everything. For this reason this module showed me that i must be fully trained with all the updates information to be able to bring the correct information to future students.

Legal Obligation s & Opportunities

My discussion relates to one of the quiz questions  under "Legal Obligations and Opportunities."

For the student who has Asperger's syndrome, there was no information about whether reasonable accommodations were provided to him. A decision was to be made based solely on the information provided.

I know that students with liabilities in higher learning institutions should be held accountable for their actions/ violations. However, I keep asking myself, if reasonable accommodation(s) was provided for the student.

Am I overthinking this?

I am not disputing the correct answer on the quiz because it seemed more logical than the other choices.

Admission decision

Is important to share with the prospects the correct information before they were admitted, this help in their development during study.


informing rather than persuading

It's important when interacting with students that we are thoroughly knowledgeable about what we are discussing.  If we aren't, get someone who is, and learn from the discussion.  We also should limit our speech to informative, and not try to persuade the student as this might be misconstrued.
