There are three ways to get students into EduSourced:
- Adding students one at a time
- Importing students from your school's database (more popular for curricular programs)
- Student applications (more popular for extracurricular programs)
This article covered the first and second method. Read about student applications here.
To add other types of users, access the Users admin panel. Learn how here.

Click Students -> Upload Students.
Note: this feature can be configured to accept custom outputs, including additional data fields for your students, from your student database. Contact EduSourced Support to set this up for your account. The default format is attached below:
Clicking Upload Students prompts you to upload a CSV file with your student records The default format is attached here and simply contains Student First Name, Last Name and Email. To confirm the format that you should be using, click the Download Template button, pictured above, in the Upload Students prompt.
Selecting Comprehensive for your upload will mark any student currently in your roster, who is not included in the upload, as Alumni. Selecting Supplemental for your upload adds any students in your CSV to your existing Current student roster without changing the status of any existing students.
