 To promote all students in a class/session


This process alters data. We recommend backing up your data before proceeding.

  1. Enter or select the class/session to move students from, and select the new class/session to move students into.

    Useful Information

    The classes and the year/periods must be defined in the Class Schedules window and the Class or Session Year/Period Keyword list.

    It's important to promote all classes that use this automatic posting feature at one time.

  3. Select to include only active, only inactive, or all students.
  4. When you're ready to move the students, click Post Classes/Sessions.
