Features You can define the administrative processes for cohorts by assigning cohort contexts to them. The SAP
standard system contains the
cohort context (key 0001). This context is used to group
students who attend (have booked) the same business events and for whom you can therefore plan events simultaneously.
You can assign context objects to cohorts. The system uses these context objects as additional information on how to execute the administrative processes that refer to a particular context. In the cohort context, for example, you can assign the modules or business events that a particular group of students attends or will attend to a cohort.
You can arrange cohorts in hierarchical order. Cohorts can contain subcohorts or belong to main cohorts. All students in a subcohort always also belong to the higher-level main cohort. All context objects of a main cohort always also belong to the lower-level subcohort. You can distribute the students from a cohort to a subcohort. To do this, make the required settings in Customizing for Student Lifecycle Management, by choosing
You can assign cohorts to organizational units, programs, and program types. Furthermore, you can define sessions of offering and capacities for cohorts.

You can assign students to cohorts via the cohort builder or student file.
You can also edit the cohorts with a functions. In the context objects and remove these a
context to a limited extent using event planning transaction, you can assign business events to cohorts as
If you want to use cohorts in user-defined programs, you can use the methods of interfaces IF_HRPIQ00COHORTS_QUERY and IF_HRPIQ00COHORTS_CAUD in class CL_HRPIQ00COHORTS_GENERAL. The system also calls these methods from the cohort builder. You must use these methods when you edit cohorts. If you edit cohort data in any other way (for example with transaction PP01), data inconsistencies are likely to occur.
You can use the mass de-registration program to automatically execute de-registration for students who satisfy certain conditions.
In the standard system, you can perform mass de-registration for students who do not have a that applies up to a specific key date. You can also set up mass de-registration with user-defined selection methods for the following cases:
Mass de-registration of students who have not paid their tuition fees by a specific key date
Mass de-registration of students who have passed all exams in their final year of study and are thus
qualified to graduate
Mass de-registration of students whose progression results show that they have failed
