Reference the Requirement Group QRG (link below) if the Requirement Group is not in the look-up glass icon feature.  There may be setup and/or effective dating work needed.

Creating Enrollment Requirement Groups

Values for Requirement Groups are defined through the Enrollment Requirement Group component.  Students who attempt to enroll in the class and who satisfy the reserve capacity requirement group that you specify can enroll in the class up to the Cap Enrl value, (as long as the enrollment does not exceed the total enrollment capacity that you specify on the Enrollment Control page).

  1. If you would like the Reserve Capacity to expire, add a row by selecting the Add (+) button.
  2. Enter the Start Date to expire the Requirement Group and enter 0 as the Cap Enrl. This step frees up the space for other students.
  3. Select Save and the Reserve Capacity has been established.
The image highlights the "0" row.

Reserve Capacity Sequence

A Reserve Capacity Sequence number is assigned to each Requirement Group that you add for a class. Reserve Capacity Sequence #1 has priority over Reserve Capacity Sequence #2.

If a student meets more than one requirement, they will be placed in the class based on the highest priority group. Each reserve capacity sequence uses only one requirement group--the one with the most current effective date.

  1. In the Reserve Capacity panel, select the plus icon [+] in the top-right corner.
