Academic Affairs: Creating New User Manually

All users will be imported based on the group they are associated with.   Faculty will be imported on a clinical and pre-clinical level and labeled as instructors.    At the start of each year, a new batch of students will also be imported into OASIS based on their graduation year.    These students can be grouped and sorted in different ways in OASIS.    

There will be some instances where a student or instructor role will need to be created on a single instance.  

On the Navigation bar, select User and  #2 Add User.
