Enrollment Request Search page

    • The table below lists each action and its description.
Action Description
Add Grade Select to add a grade to the student's enrollment record for the class.
Change Grade Select to change a grade on the student's enrollment record for the class.

Drop to Wait List Select to drop the student from the class and move the student to the wait list for that class.
Enroll Select to enroll the student into the class.
Normal Maintenance Select to update the student's enrollment record for the class in normal maintenance mode. The updated items include grading basis, units, permission, course count, notes, requirement designation, repeat code, and instructor ID. You can use the normal maintenance action to update these items, rather than dropping the class and re-adding it with the new information. In addition, use the Normal Maintenance to change the student's Program associated with an enrollment record.
Remove Grade Select to remove a grade from the student's enrollment record for the corresponding class.
Swap Courses Select to enable the student to swap the class in which they are enrolled for different classes. The Change To field becomes available to enter the new class section where the student wants to enroll.  You can also use this option to swap a student's enrollment from one to another related class section.  List the enrollment class section in both the Class Nbr (class number) and Change and Change To fields, and select a different related class, then submit the enrollment transaction.
  1. For example, to Enroll a student, enter or look up the Class Nbr (e.g., 5437).
  2. Additional fields are optional and can be used for overrides as needed. A list of Enrollment Override definitions is included at the end of this document.
  3. Select the Wait List Okay checkbox to automatically enroll the student in the wait list if the course is full.
