Web Forms

A form is a web page that allows users to enter data for submission to a web server. Forms can have multiple purposes, including: registrations, surveys, applications or payments. Once the data has been submitted, the server processes, cleans and outputs the data into various formats such as email, spreadsheets or PDFs. Forms can also accept payments via credit card or echeck, and may display alternate payment methods if necessary. Online forms typically resemble their paper counterparts due to commonalities in mechanisms such as checkboxes, radio buttons and text fields.

What We Offer

Forms are highly branded, and are centrally managed by Web Services to ensure the highest quality to the user. They're free and are available to official university entities—colleges, schools, departments, centers, administrative offices, and anything or anyone purporting to represent Stetson University. They're subject to the university's Web Policy and Terms of Use.
