Setting Up Student Groups
To set up a student group, use the Student Group Table component.
The system does not deliver any predefined student groups, so you need to define your own to meet your institution's needs. You can add one or multiple groups. Each group will need a enter a unique four-character letter identifier such as ROCK for Rock County students, MNUG for Minnesota Undergraduate students, or VETS for Veteran’s spouse.
Pages Used to Set Up Student Groups
Student groups enable you to define groups of similar students at a high level, such as athletes, incoming freshman, veterans and so on. Creating groups of students enables you to track and, monitor use the students within a group for campus-wide processing (billing, academic advising, and financial aid awarding).
