To open the application period, you will go into SchoolMint and go into Settings> Academic Calendar. Then, you will follow one of two procedures:
1. Set the Application Start and End dates.
2. If you are running a Lottery, you will also need to set the Open Enrollment Start and End dates. The Open Enrollment Start date should be equal to the Application Start date. The Open Enrollment End date should be equal to the deadline for which applications are eligible for the lottery.
