When an applicant intending to enroll mid-year completes enrollment with no future entry date specified, the system assumes the student will matriculate the following day and assigns the role of 'Student'.

To prevent this from happening, you must enter a future entry date. To fix this issue:

  1. Remove the role of Student on the Roles tab of their person record.
  2. Add the role of Future Student and click Update.
  3. Populate the Entry Date field on the Enr History tab with the date they will first attend class and click Update.
