Locator Screen

On the Locator tab, you can enter a name or student number in order to locate a particular student’s record.

Search Parameters

Entering a Student Number

When you enter a student number and click ‘Go’, the system will display a line of information about that particular student. Clicking ‘Select’ to the left of the search result will take you directly to the Overview tab for that student. If the student number has a leading zero, it must be included.

Entering a Student Name

When you enter a name in the Name Locator box and click ‘Go’, the system will display 40 student names beginning with the name you entered. The system accepts full or partial names, and is not case-sensitive (i.e. the names can be uppercase or lowercase). For example, if you are looking for “Robert Smith”, you could enter “smith, ro” and your student would likely appear within the first 40 names displayed.

If the name does not appear in the first 40 names, click ‘Next’ at the bottom right to display the next 40 names. When you find the student, click ‘Select’ to go to the Overview tab for that student.

Limiting Your Search

You have several options for the types of students included in your search. These are controlled by the checkboxes beneath the Name Locator box. You may include only admitted students, only applicants, or both. Within admitted students, you may choose to include only currently enrolled students, only students not currently enrolled, or all students.

Using the ‘Clear All’ Button

The ‘Clear All’ button appears to the far right within the dark gray Name Locator bar. This button erases all student data from the screen and clears search parameters.
