Student Numbers

The Student Number is a field that schools can use if they wish to record any student number such as ID badge numbers or admission numbers.

You can see and edit a student's Student Number in the Identity section of their student profile. 



Adding a student number

Click into the student number field to add it manually.

Please note that Student numbers can't be imported or added in bulk.

Add the number to the slide over, then click Save Changes.



Edit or delete the student number

To edit the student number, click on it, amend it then click Save Changes.

Please note that it is not possible to remove or delete the student number once assigned - you will need to change it.

What is the difference between Arbor Student ID and Student Number?

Student Number and Arbor Student ID can both be found in the Identity section of the Student Profile.



Difference 1:

  • Student Number isn't automatically filled in and can be left blank.
  • Arbor ID can't be changed. This determines the page identity for their profile.



Difference 2:

  • Student Numbers may not migrate over from your previous MIS (If you came from Integris or CMIS, this will not come over to Arbor).
  • Arbor ID's are generated before your Arbor site is released.

Difference 3:

  • Some students may not have a student number unless it was manually inputted.
  • Arbor IDs are the best identifiers in Arbor as each are unique, searchable and reportable, and every student will have one.
