Once Graduation Endorsements have been created, students can be added to them. As the student plans, enrolls in, or receives credit for a course or courses in the endorsement, the student's status within the endorsement will be calculated and then displayed on the student's Profile and Graduation Status pages.


Adding/Deleting an Endorsement to a Student's Record

On each student's Profile page and Graduation Status page, the Add-On Graduation Requirement widget allows a Graduation Requirement to be added or deleted. Additionally, the widget will display the student's status within any Graduation Requirements they have been added to. To view a student's Add-On Graduation Requirement widget, a user will need Read permissions to GES. To add or delete a Graduation Requirement from a student's record, a user will need Update permissions to GES.


Press the Add / Delete button to add a Graduation Requirement:


Existing Graduation Requirements will be displayed. Check the checkbox by any Graduation Requirement that should be added to the student and press the Save button. 


The Graduation Requirement(s) will be added to the student. Their status will be calculated and displayed on the Add-On Graduation Requirement widget on the student's Profile and Graduation Status pages.

 

Opting a Student Out of Graduation Requirements

On the student's Add-On Graduation Requirement widget, a checkbox is provided to opt a student out of all Graduation Requirements. In order to opt out a student, a user will need Update permissions to STU. If a student has opted out of Graduation Requirements, the Add / Delete button will no longer display on the widget.


Graduation Requirements Status Calculation

The status of a student within a Graduation Requirement is based on the course records in the student's Academic Plan (APC), Transcript (HIS), and current Class Schedule (SEC). The student's status is displayed on their Profile and Graduation Status pages:
