Change a password

Students can change their own passwords by requesting a password reset from the main Login screen. However, if the student cannot access the email address that's on file with Fisdap, they will need you to reset their password for them. Fisdap staff are not authorized to reset student passwords, and we will defer them to you to complete these steps:

  1. Go to the orange Account tab.
  2. Under the Student Accounts section, click on the Student Account information link.
  3. Type in the student's name or click Advanced Options to use the filters to select the student whose account you need to edit.
  4. On the righthand side of the page, enter the new password for the student twice to ensure there are no typing errors.  You may also need to enter your password to verify your account before changing the student's password. 
  5. Be sure to save your changes.

 

Change a graduation date

Graduation dates in Fisdap serve two main purposes: a way to organize your students in filters throughout the website and a way to expire student accounts after they complete the course.

If students need more time to complete the course, you can extend their graduation date. And if student leave the course prior to completion, you can mark them as left program.

Students self-report their graduation date when they first create their account. After that, they cannot change it. Only an instructor who can edit student accounts will be able to change a student's graduation date.

Definitions of different graduation statuses:

  • In Progress:  Indicates that the student is currently enrolled in your program and has not yet graduated.
  • Pending: Indicates that the student's graduation date has passed but he or she has not yet been marked as "graduated" by their instructor.
  • Left Program: Indicates that the student left the program prior to graduating.
    • If a student dropped the course, you can choose to "Remove from Class" so their name no longer shows up in current lists of students or "Retain Class Year" if the student plans to return.
    • You can also choose to delete all of the students' future shifts which means you will not have to remove their shifts one by one from the Scheduler.
  • Graduated: Indicates that the student graduated from the program.
  • Failed to Graduate: Indicates that the student completed the program but failed to graduate.
