Error: Required Field Missing: School Id - When processing signup requests

When processing a signup transaction for a user account that was created via a web service call from a non-NetCommunity Single Sign-on website of record, you may receive the following prompt after clicking Create New and then New Constituent to create a Constituent record to link the sign-up request to:

Unchecked education values will be automatically rejected for this relationship.  Continue?

After selecting Yes at this prompt, you may receive the following error message:

There was an error saving this education record.  Required Field Missing: School Id

This may occur even when no school/education information is passed from the website of record in the signup transaction.

Download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable. 

Alternative Solution:
1. When prompted with Unchecked education values will be automatically rejected for this relationship.  Continue? click Yes.
2. An error message stating There was an error saving this education record.  Required Field Missing: School Id will appear; click OK.  The Education profile information window opens.
3. Click the Close button in the Education profile information window to return to the plugin transaction processing grid.  The signup transaction is now linked to the new Constituent record.
4. Click Process Transaction to individually process the signup transaction.  No further errors will display, and no Education/School relationships will be created on the Relationships tab of the new Constituent record.

Alternative Solution 2 (If the first one does not link the transaction):
1. When prompted with Unchecked education values will be automatically rejected for this relationship.  Continue? click Yes.
2. An error message stating There was an error saving this education record.  Required Field Missing: School Id will appear; click OK.  The Education profile information window opens.
3. When you see the area to put in the School Name double click on the white box and you will see a drop down of schools. Select one. Click Save. You will see the messages from 1 and 2. Click through them
4. The transaction will now be linked
