Import Enrollment

Define Student Course Enrollment in Bulk in SchoolFront

After courses have been imported into the system, SchoolFront allows administrator users to enroll students in the courses with student IDs and course IDs using a Microsoft Excel™ spreadsheet import.

Once enrollments have been defined by an administrator user, teachers can login to the system and make adjustments to enrollments in their own courses, adding and removing students where appropriate.

  1. Login as an administrator.
  2. Ensure that you are logged into the correct school by looking at the name of the school in the left navigation menu. If you are in the wrong school, click Change Role to switch to the correct School.
  3. Once you are in the correct school, place your mouse cursor over Manage Courses in the left navigation menu. A sub-menu will open.
  4. Click Export/Import Course Enrollment. The page will open.
