Adjust for Partial Registration – If a student is registered and this option is selected, the analysis will associate additional courses (above the existing registration) the student should complete up to the estimated credit load provided.  If this option is not selected, the analysis will move past any student who has registered and assume his/her registration is complete.
Analysis Students must be in Prior Term – If this option is selected, the analysis will check active students to see if they were registered in the user-defined prior term before including them in the analysis.
Import New Students Without History – When running an analysis early for a particular analysis term, the ability to import new students who haven’t yet converted to academic history may be required.
Replace Simulated Students with Real – The analysis run adds simulated students to ensure the analysis includes a sample incoming freshman and transfer class in addition to continuing students.  When this option is selected, the analysis will begin to replace simulated students with actual students who have been admitted to the institution.


17.Click Save in Progress.


NoteNOTE:  Do not click Next at this time.  The initial imports must be completed before running the analysis.
