Rules for Effective Dating enrollment based Student Groups

If adding a Student group for a Future Term, then Effective Date is today's date.

If adding a Student Group for a Current Term, then Effective Date is on or before the first day of the current term.


  • The Term Begin Date can be found: Student Records WorkCenter, |Dean/Dept Processing|, Session Dates and Deadlines
  • Student Group data is not term specific. Therefore, entry of the Effective Date with a date on or before the first day of the term is essential for course enrollment.
  • A student must be added to the student group before the student is eligible to enroll for any course with a requisite that includes that student group.
