If a classification type is a System classification, our engineering team must add this on your behalf. If it is a school-defined classification, it can be done by you at the school. To determine what kind of classification it is, navigate to the System Homepage and select Person Classifications Types.

The System homepage with the Person Classification Types link highlighted.

Look for the classification type in the category column (e.g. Award, Development, General, etc.) and note if the System checkbox is enabled. 

The "Category" and "System" columns are highlighted. If it is a system classification, that column is checked.

If it is, submit a request to have the classification added. When submitting the request, include the following information:

  • Category
  • Description
  • Notes (if applicable)

If the checkbox is not enabled, follow the instructions in this article.
