Instead of having to contact their chosen university or college and wait to be released into Clearing, applicants can now do this themselves – saving valuable time. Online self-release will be available in Track to all placed applicants, from 5 July 2019.
How will online self-release into Clearing work?
The process is simple, but incorporates a number of warnings to make sure applicants fully understand what they are doing.
- The applicant signs in to Track, and clicks the ‘Decline my place’ button on their homepage.
- They will be taken to a page which explains what they’re about to do, and a drop-down question which they must complete, before confirming.
- They will then receive an email to confirm they’re in Clearing, and advising them to phone the university or college they declined, if they made a mistake.
