Business Rules

Student Groups that appear on the dashboards in the CSUMB Data Warehouse have been whitelisted to only display student group categories that have been requested because of their analytic utility.

If you have a student group that does not appear on the dashboards that you would like to appear, submit and Data Warehouse development request ticket.


Examples of Student Groups include:

  • Pay It Forward
  • Teacher Pathway Program LS KC

Definition Source

"Student groups enable you to set up groups (such as Athlete or Freshman) and assign these groups to individuals. Then you can perform actions (such as run reports and processes) on a group, which affects all of the individuals in the group."[1]
