Once a student is accepted to your school, you can add the student to the new school year in AdminPlus. To carry out this process, you need to map your current Admissions Plus Pro school year to the corresponding AdminPlus school year. You can also map Admissions Plus Pro and AdminPlus database fields to send this data along with accepted students. Once you've completed these steps, you can send students from the Enrollment Center in Admissions Plus Pro to the Admissions Holding Bin in AdminPlus. Students are held there until you approve their admission in AdminPlus.
Map Admissions Plus Pro and AdminPlus School Years
Before sending students from Admissions Plus Pro to AdminPlus, ensure that you've correctly mapped schools years in the Setup Center. To map school years, do the following:
Click Setup, and then in the Setup Center, click Send to SIS.
- In the Admissions Schools column of the School Mapping box, click the Admissions Plus Pro year that you want to map to AdminPlus.
- In the AP Schools column, double-click to open the Select Administrator’s Plus School Year dialog box.
- Next to the Administrator’s Plus folder location box, click , click the corresponding RS4 folder, and then click OK.
In Schools and Years, select a school year check box, and then click Accept [F10].
This process maps the school year between Admissions Plus Pro and AdminPlus, as well as any shared grade levels and database fields. Database fields must have the exact same name and position to be mapped during this process. To map Database Fields missed by this process, see "Map Admissions Plus Pro and AdminPlus Database Fields."
Map Admissions Plus Pro and AdminPlus Database Fields
If you've added student data to Admissions Plus Pro, you can send it to AdminPlus with the accepted students. Some of these fields are mapped when you map school years; however, you aren't limited to those database fields. To map additional database fields, do the following:
- Click Setup, and then in the Setup Center, click Send to SIS.
At the lower-right side of the Send to SIS tab, click any of the following tabs:

Next to the Admissions field you want to send to AdminPlus, double-click a field in AP Fields, click a field in the Select Field dialog box, and then click Done [F10].
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 for any field you want to include when you send students from Admissions Plus Pro to AdminPlus.
Send Students from Admission Plus Pro to AdminPlus

Click Enroll, and then, in the Enrollment Center, clear the check box for any students you don’t want to send to AdminPlus at this time.
