Arrival Upload Batch

A list of student names for arriver batch upload to ENROL is displayed for those with Enrolment Officer responsibility allocated in edge, from ENROL tabs via the Students > Summary page

Arrival Data Process

​​How can I edit data for students where there are issues with ENROL data?

The ENROL Issues page displays all students who either still require data before they appear on the applicable batch upload page, or, as a result of being included in a Get Check, Arrival or Leaver upload, there are differences between the data held in ENROL and edge.

Where a student has not previously been registered and has no National Student Number ("NSN"), your school needs to register them by visiting the ENROL  website, or contacting the MoE Contact Centre:

Ph 0800 422 599,

or emailing moe.contactcentre@minedu.govt.nz.

Students who have already been registered can have their NSN verified, and their enrolment status updated with ENROL by using the Arriver and Leaver process in edge. When a student’s details have been entered into edge and saved, edge will verify whether all of the data required for the student is complete. If there are any issues they will be highlighted on the individual’s Edit Student page. At the same time the NSN status for the student is set to Unverified.

The complete enrolment cycle is listed here, and we have videos available detailing the arrival and leaving ENROL process in edge.

Get Check NSN

edge can verify that the NSN details provided match the individual student’s details. To verify a student’s NSN is correct, the following is required in edge:

  • National Student Number

  • First Name

  • Last Name

  • Date of Birth

  • Gender 

Check NSN


An Enrolment Officer can either select the “Check NSN” button in the Edit Student tab of student details, or wait for the automatic overnight verification to take place. The Current NSN status of the student can be either:

  1. Unverified – Verification is still to take place against ENROL to ensure NSN and student details match.

  2. Verified – NSN and student details match. Where the response from ENROL has stated the student is currently un-enrolled (or enrolled at a different school), yet all of the other data matches - 'Verified' displays, however the student is listed on the ENROL Issues page until their enrolment status has been updated to attending at your school. This ensures the student can be formally enrolled using the Arriver process.

  3. Issues – There are differences/partial matches which require the attention of the person with Enrolment Officer responsibility in edge to confirm the correct identity of a student and their corresponding NSN.

When an NSN has been verified, a link is available on the Extra MoE Details section of the Student Details page providing access to the student’s record within the MoE ENROL website.

Get Check Button

On the Edit Student tab, clicking “Check NSN” triggers validation of the student details and NSN recorded in edge against the Ministry of Education ENROL server. If the data matches, the status is updated to “Verified”. If there are differences between information held in edge and ENROL, these are simultaneously displayed. The Enrolment Officer can then elect to use the ENROL data by selecting the corresponding check box, or update edge or ENROL manually. The student’s status is then updated accordingly. After running ‘Check NSN’ in Enrolments > Student Details > Edit Student, scroll to the bottom of the page and save the record, updating the status. 



The Enrolment Officer has a fixed widget headed ‘ENROL Information’ displaying any issues as part of the Enrolment Process separated within the groupings of:

  • Get Check NSN

  • Arrivers

  • Leavers

Clicking from the edge Dashboard on the buttons showing numbers goes to the appropriate page to either edit data requirements, or complete the desired enrolment status of the student.

Arriver Upload Process

To appear on the ENROL Upload Batch page, a student must have been marked Present, and all of the required data for ENROL must have been entered. If any required data is missing, the student’s name is listed on the “ENROL Issues” tab from the Enrolment Summary page.

ENROL Issues

The ‘Enrol Issues’ page displays all student names where - either data is still required before they appear on the applicable batch upload page or, as a result of being included in a Get Check, Arrival or Leaver upload - there are differences between the data held in ENROL and edge. You can choose which issues you wish to work with by selecting from the dropdown. When selected, only those students who have issues within the field will display. Click on the chevron next to a student name to display the details of the data issues. You can update the details on this page and save them. If the changes made are as a results of being part of a previous upload, the students re-appear on the batch upload page ready to be selected for the next batch.

Arrival Upload Batch

All students who have not previously been verified with ENROL, (your school can register them by contacting the ENROL  website directly), or have had data issues fixed as a result of a previous batch run, will appear for selection. All students are listed in alphabetical order, or alternatively students may be grouped by school year level by selecting the appropriate option. All students are set to be included in a batch by default.

Individual students can be deselected from inclusion in the next batch run. If deselected, they will not be part of the next batch process, but will be available for future selection. You can also permanently remove students from the Arrival Upload Batch page. If you proceed with this option, you will have to manage all ENROL details regarding the student using the Ministry of Education ENROL website directly.

Once all students have been selected, you can submit the batch. Once submitted, the page becomes unavailable for editing until the job has been completed. A confirmation email will be sent to the staff member with Enrolment Officer responsibilities in edge detailing the status of the latest run. Staff with Administrative permissions can also go to the Admin > Import/Export > Server Tasks to view this information.

If a student Enrolment update has been successful, their name will be removed from the batch upload page and a confirmation date recorded on the student's Edit Student details page.

When a student enrolment match has been unsuccessful in ENROL, they will be removed from the upload batch page and placed in the Enrol Issues tab where issues can be determined, and changes made to the student’s details as required.
