To Bulk upload students follow the instructions below

Important: Download the sample CSV file by clicking here or in the attachment below. Copy and paste your data into the GeniusOne® supplied CSV file. Do not change any column names in the first row as this is the identifier for the data. The CSV upload will fail if the column names are modified in any way.

GeniusOne® will bulk update the data based on the changes you have made in the file.
