Creating a Quote for a Student

The system allows you to create a Quote for a student before they are invoiced for their enrolment into a course. In this article, we will go over how to create a Quote and how to generate an invoice from the Quote.


Navigate to the party profile for the desired student and in the left side menu, click on Quotes under the Finance heading.

This will take you to the Quotes page and show any existing Quotes for that student. To create a new Quote, click on the + New button. 

Quote Details

You should now be on the Quote creation page, where you can enter the details for the Quote.

  • To: This will be pre-filled with a link to the student’s party profile
