Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud’s School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks—constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same. We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.
When enrolling Candidates, if they are receiving the Student role instead of the Incoming Student role, this is occurring based on what year is set as the Current Year in Core. If their Entering Year is set as the Current Year in Core, they will get the Student role.
You can see what year is set as the Current Year through:
Navigate to > Core > School > Years & Terms
The default year is the Current Year and will say Current Year: Yes
