To define an entity group and incorporate a Student Group into Academic Advisement, refer to QRG 9.2 Defining Enrollment Requirement Conditions Using a Group or Plan Within a List of Possible Groups or Plans (Requisite Entity Groups). When an entity group is created, it is possible to use this academic entity group in Academic Advisement and Enrollment Requirements as a precondition or condition requirement. Academic entity groups are similar items that have been grouped together to use them more efficiently.
