Below are answers to the most common questions that we receive from students.  The complete MDCAPS User Guide for Students can be found on the homepage of the MDCAPS system once you log in.  Click on the “Help” icon at the top of the page.



Q3.      I have been offered awards at several colleges, and I know that I have to accept the award at only one of them.  How do I do that in MDCAPS?

A3.      When you are in the MDCAPS system, on the home page you will see a menu option for “Enrollment.”  Click on this link.  Once you are on the Enrollment screen, you will see the colleges currently associated with your record.  Next to each institution is the assumed enrollment for the fall and spring terms.  You will need to change the enrollment at the institutions that you will not attend to “Not Enrolled” and ensure that your enrollment and housing plans at the institution you will attend is correct.  When you change your enrollment for all terms to “Not Enrolled,” the institution will be deleted from your record.  It can be added back by following instructions in the next question.
