Commonly Asked Questions

It Sounds Like This Is For Our Admissions Office

Somewhat, but not exactly... We'd love to loop in Admissions after you take a look and decide if it's a good fit for your music department. We're very focused on the countless nuances of music departments and typically like to start with you, the music faculty.

Recruiting for a music department is more competitive compared to other departments. Students are questioning if it's a good idea to become a music major or participate in music in college. The students who are sold, are shopping around and looking at competing institutions. There's a finite pool of quality talent out there that all music departments are fighting to win over. It's very challenging. For these reasons and others, music departments require specific tools that have more competitive capabilities than the typical tools used within the university at large. This is the lane that Musicwindow is focused on and it supplements what Admissions does quite well.

Musicwindow is a very different product than what your university currently has implemented. Our objective is not to admit students into your university - you already have this covered. Our role is to provide a music-centered process, touchpoint strategy, and tactical execution to create an emotional layer that excites a Gen Z prospective music student to choose your music department. This is through a unique set of capabilities which cannot realistically be offered by an Admissions department, especially one that is slammed supporting the needs of 60 other departments on campus.

Is Our IT Department Going To Approve Of This Tool?
And if so, how does that process work?

The software is just one component of our offering, and we've never had an IT department reject the software.

It sometimes takes a few weeks to go through the IT Office's approval process (university IT teams are super busy helping everyone out!). If you anticipate IT would like to review some information, we encourage you to initiate that request early after seeing our demo.

We have the following documents available for your IT team:

  • Technical overview document - Covers the commonly asked IT questions
  • HECVAT - A 300+ row spreadsheet detailing all the specs that IT typically likes to know
  • VPAT - For the accessibility team to review how Musicwindow adheres to accessibility standards

Please request these documents via the form below. We will follow up within 1 business day. The approval is typically pretty straightforward from there.

How Do I Learn More?

A typical process goes like this:

  1. Schedule a demo. We'll meet over a Zoom and look at how this might work for you.
  2. Afterward, with your permission, we provide a recording of the meeting and any PDFs, short videos, client references, or materials you can use to best introduce this to any additional decision makers.
  3. When you're ready we'll decide to either A) get it rolling, B) schedule an additional meeting with other staff members, C) plan customized next steps as you see fit, or D) do nothing.

At any point, if you decide we’re not the right fit for you (or vice versa), we'll just part ways professionally.

Does Musicwindow Integrate With Slate?

Yes, we are pleased to offer an integration with Slate and other Admissions tools so that data can flow seamlessly back and forth between your music department and the admissions office. This is done through a live JSON object which updates automatically. There are other options as well to suit a range of needs and situations. Let us know what works best for you and we typically have no issues getting all departments what they need.
