SIS/Student Groups - Inactivating a Student from a Student Group


This document outlines how to inactive a student group in a student's record.


By inactivating a student's student group, a record of their group association is kept, but the student group will no longer function for the student. Inactivating has a similar effect to deleting a student group with the advantage of keeping a history. To inactive a student group from a student’s record, follow the steps below:

Step 1

  • Navigate to the Student Groups page at Student Records WorkCenter, Student Groups or > Records and Enrollment > Career and Program Information > Student Groups.
  • The Find page will display. Search for the student you want to add a student group for by entering their Campus ID # in the "Campus ID" field. Other search fields can be used, but Campus ID is the value you're most likely to know and its use will ensure you're accessing the correct student record.
  • Select "Search."

Tip: Use the row counter bar to move around.
