When you define a student appointment block, you are selecting criteria such as academic career, academic program, cumulative GPA, and academic level that will constitute a particular population of your student body for whom you want to assign enrollment or validation appointments. For example, you might assign appointments based solely on academic level, so your freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors have different appointments, or you might assign particular appointments to all senior undergraduate honors students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better. You can define as many appointment blocks as you want on the Student Appointment Block page and reuse them term after term.
You can also create a custom student appointment block by selecting specific student IDs for the block.
You use student appointment blocks when assigning appointments in batch on the Assign Appointments page. On this page, you select an appointment block created on the Enrollment Appointment page and then select a student appointment block. The Assign Students Appointment process assigns the appointment numbers from the appointment block to the students who fit the criteria of the student appointment block. The processing priorities that you define on the Processing Priorities page for the student appointment block determine the order in which the system assigns students appointment numbers.
In this topic, you will create two student appointment blocks.
