Can a student have multiple email addresses?

Last Updated: Apr 18, 2016 04:09PM EDT
Using multiple email addresses for students is supported by Merit and is a recommended practice. Including them improves Merit's ability to match student identities. Just add an additional column for personal emails to your spreadsheet. 

When you use multiple email addresses for students:

  • They will be able to choose which email address is their primary address. 
  • They won't lose access to their Merit account after graduation. 

Additional student addresses can be assigned when you map student attributes in either the achievement workflow or the Import Student workflow:

The email address field with the red star* will be the student's primary email address in Merit. The field labeled "Student Email Address 2" is the student's secondary address. 

You can also add additional email addresses for students when manually adding students to achievements.
