About student transfer

The Transfer feature allows staff to move mySciLEARN students to other schools in the district; for example, when a student moves to a new school, or a group of students graduate to middle or high school. You can transfer an individual student, a group of students at a school, or all of the students in a school.

Tip: You can also transfer large numbers of students while updating from a CSV file. See Update students from a file.

How student transfer works

When transferring students, the transfer happens within the mySciLEARN server, so student transfer files do not need to be created or physically moved to a new location.

To access the Transfer feature, log in to mySciLEARN and click the Students tab to open the Students page. The Transfer feature appears in the More Actions menu based on your staff role:

  • District managers and school managers can always access this feature.
  • Instructors cannot see the Transfer menu item and cannot access the feature.

To complete a transfer, you must have access to both schools—the original school with the students and the new school for the students; however, if you are a school manager and are not associated with both schools, you can transfer the students to the district. From there, the district manager can complete the transfer. Those students will retain their student profiles and product assignments; however, they will not be able to train on the products or use Reading Progress Indicator until they are transferred in to the new school.

More about transferring students

When you transfer a student out of a school, that student will lose their staff and group associations at that school.

Transferred students will use the same Auto Assign and Auto Initial Assignment options that they were using in the original school, independent of the new school’s settings.

For students to continue with their original assignments after the transfer, the new school will need a valid product license. See About licenses for more information.
