The Slate Inquiry Form acts as a request for information from prospective graduate applicants. In addition to contact information, we also request prospects to identify preferred Program and Term so that their information can be routed to appropriate program-level contacts (through Populations and Roles).
Required fields include First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Birthdate, Country of Citizenship, and Intended Term. Submission of the Inquiry Form creates a new Person Record (unless the record already exists based on Slate’s matching criteria) with an inq_source of GS Inquiry Form.
There are other ways that students can express interest in UGA graduate education, including registering for a recruitment event or meeting with Graduate School staff at graduate recruitment fairs. Any of these direct contacts results in this student being classified as an Inquiry.
