Student Search


New in 4.5.1  The Student Search function has improved performance of search results for student records. This search now works the same in Self-Service as it does in the uAchieve Planner.

The Students button allows the user to perform a student search by Student ID, First Name, or Last Name.

Alternately, you may access from the menu bar:



Access to the Students area is controlled by uAchieve Self-Service app function SS_MISC_STUDENTSEARCH, otherwise this button to access student search will not display.

  • If Update is set to None, the advisor has no access to the student search screen
  • If Update is set to Full, the advisor has access to the student search screen

Access to student advisees is also controlled by uAchieve Self-Service app function SS_MISC_STUDENTSEARCH:

  • If Read is set to Restricted, then the advisor is limited to only being able to search their list of advisees
  • If Read is set to Full, the advisor is not limited and can search all students



Customize the display in the Student search area in the Admin help area.

Depending upon the level of access and customizations performed, the Student Search page has several areas:

  • Search fields
  • List of advisees
  • Add new student
