Streamline your admissions work flow by integrating with Enrolment Management Association.

What is the SAO?

The Enrolment Management Association created the Standard Application Online to ease the application process for students and schools. It allows families to use a single website to submit applications to a variety of independent schools that align with their interests, while schools can collect all information including biographic information, teacher recommendations, and transcripts online with the opportunity to customise the application with their own supplement.

Students have submitted more than 200,000 applications to independent schools around the world using the Standard Application Online. There is an average 20% growth in applications for schools who adopt the SAO.

Finalsite Apply seamlessly integrates with SAO so you don't have to worry about applications being in two places and so you can use all the features and functionality you need to manage your application process!
