FAQ - Desk Audit: US-born students w/ Non-US Ed Location

This article tells how to correct student history when a student is marked as U.S.-born, but has a Non-U.S. Education Location.

  • Not all students in this Desk Audit table need to be changed. See the notes below.
  • The table will not show ALL student records incorrectly marked as Non-U.S. Ed Location. It shows only those with a suspicious mismatch with the student's U.S.-born data.

Three types of student may appear on this table:

  1. Students born in the U.S., but educated outside the U.S.
  2. Students incorrectly marked as Non-U.S. Education because of a typo.
  3. Students attended a MN ABE program before July 2016.

Students born in the U.S., but educated outside the U.S.

Students incorrectly marked as Non-U.S. Ed Location

If student records were incorrectly marked with an Non-U.S. Ed Location, they should be updated. Follow the instructions below.

Students attended a MN ABE program before July 2016

When SiD went online in 2016, many imported student records did not have an Education Location selected. Those records were brought into SiD with a default "Non-U.S. Education" item. If the student was educated in the U.S., follow the instructions below to correct the Ed Location.

The fix below will remove the student from the Missing Info page on the Desk Audit report.

  2. On page 1 of the report, Look for the "US-born w/non-US Education Location" table.
  3. Click the + (plus) sign to show student names. Click the name/badge ID of a student.
  4. Go to the Students>History tab. Note whether the student is shared.
  5. Locate and select the most recent Education Location row.

    >If the student is SHARED or has more than one Ed Location row, edit the Effective Date of the most recent item to the first day of the current NRS Program year, e.g. 7/1/18. Save changes.

    >If the student is NOT SHARED, click the Remove this History button; save changes.
    Then create a new Education Location>US Education history item.
