What is the function of the Enroll Date field?

Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same.  
We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.


In an incoming student's contact card I see a required field for "enroll date". What purpose does that serve?
The enroll date in Core exists for record keeping purposes and in this case, it will change the users role from Incoming Student to Student. If set to a future academic year, this will give the incoming student role to that record. Once that enroll date hits and/or the future academic year is set as the current year, the user will change to a Student. After that point, however, it is used primarily for record keeping purposes.
