Review the students in the list to determine if they are duplicates by comparing Names, IDs, and Date of Birth. If the students are duplicates, select the arrow of which student to keep - left or right. If the students are not duplicates, select "Do Not Merge."
Once the two accounts are merged, all data from both accounts are combined into the selected student to keep.
If you are unsure if the students should be merged, please refrain from merging the accounts until confirming if the students are duplicates.
