Matriculation Status is the student's status at the school whether they are currently active, inactive, on exchange, deferred, graduated, or expelled. For example, maybe you have a student who is spending a month in France. You don't want to un-enroll that student, but you do want to keep track of the students coming and going to keep your rosters up-to-date.
Changing a Matriculation Status
From the Student Table:
- Edit a Student Record
- The Current Status section gives you an overview of the student's status including matriculation and enrollment: Click the Change Matriculation Status button
- Now you will be able to select the reason and the date for why they are leaving. If a student is leaving for any reason other than graduating you will use the "Select an Attrition Type" option. You may also add an optional reason for attrition and create an alumni record for them if desired. Last, you will want to choose an "Attrition Status for Academic Year and Term(s)." For this option, you will select at what time during the school year did this student leave. For example, after completing the full academic year, or left during a term and therefore did not finish the school year or a term. (These options will help control some of the filtering for active/inactive students.) Once you have completed these steps click on "Set Status" and the student record will be made inactive as of the date you entered.
NOTE: The system will notify you if the student has a future enrollment that you should consider deleting. IF a student is withdrawn and NEVER attended a single day of school you will also want to remove their enrollment record for the school. It is important to ONLY complete this for students who have not attended a single day of the school year!
To remove an enrollment record, complete step #4. This will take you to the student record again and you can select the enrollment record and click Unenroll.
