What You Need to Know for Configuration 2019 – 2020

The 2019-2020 Configuration Tool opens on June 4. All configurations are due by July 19 to ensure the NursingCAS team has enough time to review your programs prior to the August 15th launch. If you plan to post programs later in the cycle, you can wait to submit them for review.

You will login to the WebAdMIT PreLaunch site to configure programs. Prelaunch is a “staging” environment that allows you to configure programs for the new cycle without impacting the current cycle. Prelaunch is similar to the sandbox environment in that it is not connected to the live environment (“production”). Learn more about PreLaunch here.

Note: only primary contacts and/or WebAdMIT users who are responsible for setting up programs have access to the configuration tool in the WebAdMIT PreLaunch site. Contact Ann or Joe from the account management team with questions or to gain access.

Your programs have been rolled over from last cycle so you can edit the existing configuration. You do not need to create new programs unless you are planning to add additional options. Please update what is there and delete any programs that appear that you do not plan to open on the 2019 – 2020 cycle.

  1. Configure Program homepage instructions and branding (required)
