Attach a Document to a Student Application


Documents such as PDFs, Word documents, text files, etc., can be attached to student applications in the GW Passport system.

How to Attach a Document to a Student Application

  1. Navigate to the student's application, e.g. via Applicants > Search.
  2. Click on the Documents tab and then click Attach New Document to Application.

  3. When attaching a file:
    1. Existing File: Do not select anything for Existing File.
    2. New File: Choose the file you want to upload from your computer.
    3. Description (optional): Add an optional specific description for the file. For example, if the transcript is not from GW, you could add the name of the school.
    4. Label: Select a label for the type of file. If you need a label that is not listed, contact to have it listed.
    5. Internal-use only: Checking this box will make the file only visible to administrators. Otherwise, when this box is unchecked, students will be able to view documents attached to their application.
    6. Send email notification to applicant: This is not recommended because the email students receive is very vague/generic and typically results in confusion for the student.
    7. Click Attach to upload your file.

  4. Uploaded files will be visible on the Documents tab. They will also be visible to the student applicant if the Internal-use only checkbox was left unchecked.
