Select the appropriate semester and year, and check your privacy settings.
Privacy option 1: If "require student approval" is checked, then the activity will be added to the student's Merit page, but it will remain private. The student will be able to see the activity in their Merit page account settings, and can choose to make it public if they wish. Each student will receive an email notification letting them know that the activity has been added to their account, but it remains private.
Privacy option 2: If "require student approval" is unchecked, then the activity will be made public on the student's Merit page. Each student will receive an email notification letting them know that the co-curricular has been added to their account, and they can choose to make it private by adjusting their Merit page account settings.
Click Apply Changes to complete the process of adding students to this roster.
The student experience
After you add a roster of students to an activity, a few things happen:
1. The student will be sent an email, notifying them that a co-curricular has been added to their page
2. Depending on the privacy settings you selected, the co-curricular will either be public or private on the student's Merit page.
3. When the co-curricular is made public, it is labeled as "verified by (your university)" on the student's Merit page.
