Taking a slot
Students can take a slot if they pass qualifications. They can do that during a schedule's sign up period:
For open schedules, this is from the apply start date to the apply end date. Students that don't meet qualifications will be marked as not fully qualified and have to be marked "primary" to take a slot.
For preselect continuous schedules, students can sign up from apply start to apply end. They can only take a slot once they have been marked as 'primary'
For preselect schedules, students can only sign up between 'primary sign up start' and 'signup end' if they are marked as a primary. For alternates the dates are 'alternate sign up start' and 'sign up end'. Students not marked as a primary or alternate cannot take a slot and will automatically be marked as declined on the signup end date.
Leaving a slot
Students can only leave a slot if they still pass qualifications. Students that were manually added overriding qualifications or who no longer meet qualifications must have their career center remove them - this is to avoid a student accidentally leaving and trying to take a new slot, but not being able to get back on the schedule.
Students can only leave during the schedule's sign up period:
For open schedules, students can leave a slot up until the apply end date
For preselect continuous schedules, students can leave a slot up until the apply end date.
For preselect schedules, students can leave a slot up until the signup end date.
