Credentials represent the Degree Level and are used when generating transcripts. If a student has more than one credential record, a user trying to print the student’s transcript must select from the credential levels 1, 2, 3 (first grade, second grade, third grade), UG (Undergraduate), and so on. A credential is created for each program a student is taking.
There is a program level on program and a course level on course with the same values available. All levels are governed by a global picklist. For instance, when a credential level of UG is chosen, the transcript will display all courses the student has taken with a UG course level on the transcript.
