6. Enter the Start Date and End Date for enrollment.

Once the student is scheduled into the applicable section, attendance can be taken as of the State Date entered here, which displays on the students' schedules.

8. Once all information has been entered and selected, click Create Students.

Clicking Create Students creates an enrollment record for the selected school as well as a schedule record for the selected section (if a section is selected).

Once students are created, a confirmation displays along with a link to each record.

You can access the list of students created once you've navigated away from this screen via Students > Add/Drop Report.
