Using Enrollment Periods
Enrollment periods contain information about your school’s daily session schedule and the students enrolled into these sessions. The periods often track as a timeline for these sessions with names such as Fall 2010, Spring 2011 and Fall 2011. By default you have just one enrollment period and when its time to enroll students into future periods you can create a new one, see Adding Enrollment Periods. Once you have added more than one enrollment period you will see a Change button next to the name at the top of the non administration pages. Use this button to switch between different periods.
When creating a new enrollment period you can save time by using the Copy Enrollment Information From and the Copy Student Enrollment check boxes when appropriate.
