How to Set up Semesters – Co-op/Internship Module


Semester Setup


1. Create Semesters – Other Activities > Co-Op/Internship > Semester List


2. Next Actions > Add Semester




3. Title your semester and tag it as “Active” or “Inactive”. Active will allow the semester to be chosen by students when submitting their Co-Op/Internship record while Inactive will hide the semester from the student view but allow it to be set to Active in the future. You are also able to set a Start and End Date for each semester using the appropriate boxes. The End Date will disable the semester from being selected by students, even if it is left in an Active status. The Start Date does not affect visibility.




4. You can tie your surveys/evaluations that have been created in Survey Monkey and refreshed into GLCC to the semester. (Please see our External Survey guide for more detail). Choose which survey/evaluation belongs to each phase and set the appropriate dates.


  1. Start Date: This is the date that triggers the survey/evaluation to be sent to the student/employer
  2. Reminder Date: This is the date that triggers the reminder email template to be sent to the student/employer, if they have not yet completed the survey/evaluation
  3. Reminder Interval: This is the amount of days between each reminder
  4. Deadline Date: This is the date that triggers the survey/evaluation to close, not allowing any further responses. The student/employer will receive a message stating that the survey/evaluation has closed when clicking the URL they initially received. The survey/evaluation can be manually re-opened if necessary. (Please see our External Survey guide for more detail)     **This date refers to approximately 12:00 AM (EST). For example: If you set the deadline date to 5/27/2018, the survey/evaluation will close at 12:00 AM on 05/27/2018.




5.  These are the surveys/evaluations and dates that each student/employer would receive by default when the student submits their Co-Op/Internship record to this semester. If you'd like to adjust the surveys/evaluations and dates for a specific student, you can achieve this by choosing “Feedback Setup” on their Co-Op/Internship record.








Q: If I modify the survey/evaluation dates on a semester, will that affect all existing Co-Op/Internship records that have been submitted to that semester?

A: If Co-Op/Internship records have already been submitted to that semester, those records would not be affected by a change to the overall semester. You would have to modify the survey/evaluation dates individually on those records. However, the change on the semester would affect any future records submitted after the change has been saved.


Q: I only use two surveys/evaluations per semester, do I need to have a survey/evaluation selected for all 5 options?

A: You do not have to have a survey/evaluation tied to each option.


Q: Can I have more than 5 surveys/evaluations tied to a semester?

A: Currently, we only support 5 surveys per semester (3 student facing & 2 employer facing)
