Banner tip

When adding attributes to a student’s record in SGASADD, always choose “Copy Student Attribute” instead of “End Student Attribute.”  If you choose “End Student Attribute,” attributes will be deleted from the student’s record.  Any change in attributes are effective starting with the term displayed in the upper right-hand corner of SGASADD.
