be formatted as either an Excel (.xls or .xlsx) or Comma Separated Values (.csv) document. Here's an example of a spreadsheet that meets the minimum requirements:
Your spreadsheet may include additional data about your students if you'd like. For example, you can additional columns for details like:
- Majors / Minors
- Personal student email addresses
- High School CEEB
- Parent postal codes
- Parent email addresses
Once students have Merit pages created (either through a student import or an achievement) you may not need a spreadsheet at all. You will be able to search for students by name or add them using just their email addresses. The information stored in their profiles will become a list for you. You'll just want to choose the "Add Student Manually" option in the achievement workflow.
