Remove student added via Person Search

It pays to be cautious before adding a person to your site using Person Search. But mistakes happen, and we have a way to remove those students who don't turn out to be who you expected.

The following instructions will work for people who:

  • were added to your site via Person Search AND
  • have not been enrolled in a class AND
  • have no attendance hours AND
  • have no tests recorded AND
  • were not person merged* with any other student records in your database.

When a student meets ALL the above criteria, the UP Removal Code box will be visible. If the removal code box is not visible, the student cannot be removed from your database with a code.

*If you add the wrong person to your database, DO NOT use person merge to combine the wrong record with another. Contact us immediately at

  3. Contact the UrbanPlanet support team at for a removal code.

  4. Enter the code, then click Remove this Student. Follow the "are you sure?" prompts.
