“With Etrieve, we were able to set up our online forms so students are only able to see the information they need to see, depending on what type of student they are. That’s helped students understand how to fill out the residency form, and it has streamlined our process by eliminating paper. Students now complete the form online and upload their documents. Their information automatically imports into Etrieve—which is an awesome thing.”
