  • Transcript Configuration: Show Session Summary

Setting the Default Academic Session

If you want to set a global default Academic Session in ampEducator to always filter on that Academic Session then an Admin User can go to Institution Account > Academic Sessions and edit any Academic Session in the list and make it the Default. To do this you must locate an Active Academic Session and to the right you will see a check mark icon. Click this to make the Academic Session the Default. It will be indicated by the green YES in the Default Column of the Academic Sessions List.


Sample Academic Sessions List

Completing Academic Sessions

If you have a long list of Academic Sessions then an Admin User can mark them as Completed as any Completed Academic Session will no longer show up in any Academic Session Filter.

Transcript Configuration: Show Session Summary = Yes
There are many areas that Academic Session applies to the software and these have been updated already to reflect the change in name but if you are missing the previous 'Term Summary' it's possible this was disabled on your Transcripts and you may need to enable this option. Please refer to Institution Account > Transcripts > Summary Section and Show Session Summary Summary = Yes.

Setting the Current Session (Default) for Students
There is now a new tab called 'Sessions' in the Student Profile. This is a summary of all the Sessions the Student has taken. It shows the Session, number of credits attempted, number completed. averages, attendance etc. You can add a new Academic Session here and also set the default by making any Session 'Current'. To do this you will see a check mark icon to the far right of each Session. Click this to make the Academic Session the Current. It will be indicated by the green YES in the Current Session Column of the Academic Sessions List for the Student.
