Creating a CSV File for Bulk Enrollment


To enroll students with a CSV (comma-separated values) file, the format of the table must be appropriately structured. The following rows must be added in this respective order:

  • Email
  • Username
  • Name
  • Country

As seen in the example below, each student must be separated by a row and not include any headers, footers, or blank lines.

If the email field within the CSV file is not associated with an existing account, a new platform account will be created using the username and name field values provided.
