Registration Reminder

The registration reminder alert identifies students who are registered for a current term, but have not yet registered for an upcoming term. A nightly job runs to create these alerts.

Duplicates are prevented as follows. The same student will not receive the same registration reminder alert if they have already been sent one for the "Not Registered Terms" selected at the time the alert runs. Also, if there are multiple terms in the "Not Registered Terms" field, and a student is not registered for any of them, they will still only receive one registration reminder alert.

Selection Criteria

  1. Student has an active registration in one of the terms selected in the "Registered for Terms" setting.
  2. Student has not earned a degree.
  3. Student does not have a registration in the Registered status for any of the terms in the "Not Registered Terms" setting.
  4. Alert hasn't been created for the student for the terms selected in the "Not Registered Terms" selection.
