  • Your security determines which service indicator(s) you can delete.
  • It is important to release a service indicator when the student has cleared it or when the service indicator has expired.
    Once released, the student will no longer see the service indicator in their Student Center nor will it impact them.
  • When you remove a student’s service indicator information, any evidence of the previous service indicator information is removed from the system; however, behind the scenes, an audit record changes.
  • If a service indicator has a limited time impact, e.g., End Term and/or End Date, you still need to Release the service indicator so it no longer displays.
