Course Completion: Students completed this course, but will not progress to another.

Full Program Completed: Students have completed program requirements.

4. If you selected Course Progression as the Progression Type, you must also select a New Section for which the student(s) will be enrolled from the pull-down. If you selected any of the other three options, the New Section pull-down will become inactive.

5. If you selected Course Progression as the Progression Type, you must also enter a Start Date for the New Section enrollment and a Withdrawal Date for the Section to Drop.

6. If you selected Fail Out of Program, Course Completion, or Full Program Completed as the Progression Type, you must enter a Withdrawal Date for the Section to Drop. The Start Date will be inactive along with the New Section pull-down.

At any point during this process, you can Clear all selections made by clicking the corresponding link; this allows you to clear all data entered and start from the beginning.

If a student is billed by section, the funding end date is the withdrawal date for Course Progression (Progression Type). For Fail Out of Program, Course Completion, and Full Program Completed (Progression Type), the funding end date is the WDIS End Date. If the student is billed by something other than section, the funding end date is the withdrawal date for Course Progression (Progression Type). For Fail Out of Program, Course Completion, and Full Program Completed (Progression Type), the funding end date is the end of the term.

Based on the section selected from the Section to Drop pull-down, actively enrolled students will be listed by Student Name, Student ID, Gradebook Grade, Final Grade, Attended Hours, Start Date, End Date, and the Progressed status.
