Automate your enrollment system to save time and money, simplify the process for families, and more effectively plan your marketing and student recruitment.
Streamlined Application Processes and Recruiting
Independent and private schools operate in a different environment from that of public schools. To stay competitive, you need efficiency in your processes and good data to inform student recruitment efforts.
With SchoolMint’s software solution — customized for your school’s specific needs — independent schools can bring their enrollment and recruiting processes online to streamline applications, manage waitlists, engage with parents more effectively, and focus recruitment planning.
Simplified Registration for New and Returning Students
Registering new and returning students is paperless and painless with SchoolMint’s intuitive software system that automates every aspect of the student enrollment process. Parents can register their student and check their status, all from their own mobile devices. Save time and money and operate with greater efficiency, and have 24/7 access to student registration status, student data and demographics, and fees.
Student enrollment data is accurate and secure. Submitted applications and registrations, along with student record changes, are synchronized across the system and stored in a private cloud environment. Dashboards and reports give you all the analytics you need to effectively plan your student marketing, recruiting, and operations.
Customizable Digital Forms and Document Management
Go paperless for all of your forms and student documents throughout the year — not just at enrollment time. With easy form-building tools and mobile-friendly access for parents that allows them to fill out any form and upload any required documents from their own device, schools will have an automated, more efficient way to gather and manage critical enrollment information.
Updates to family information are shared across the SchoolMint software system, so independent schools will have cleaner, more up-to-date, and more consistent information that is accessed from the cloud, securely, at any time.

School Waitlist Management
With the automated waitlist, the system does all the work — it tracks and assigns open seats according to your priorities and rules, then populates the waitlist in the correct order. As students accept offers, waitlisted applicants move up appropriately, and both parents and administrators can check their dashboards anytime to check status.
Mobile Access for Parents
Families can use a mobile app or their computer to submit applications and view statuses — even for multiple children. The can also accept offers, register, withdraw, decline, track their child’s waitlist status, and even schedule interviews and shadow days.
Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation from teachers and counselors can be collected and attached to the student’s online application. Recommenders are notified by email and can submit their letter through a secure web-based form.
Send communications to individual families, targeted groups, or the entire school. Use templates to save time composing messages, and deliver them automatically in the mode parents prefer — email, text message, or voice message. View details about all parent interactions at a glance through the communications log.
Events and Interviews
Send invitations to families for open houses, interviews, tours, and other school events, and parents can RSVP right from their smartphones. Track RSVPs, manage event capacity, and send reminders by email or text message. You can even take attendance in the system.
