What is the Difference Between an Affiliation User and Mentor?

Intended Audience: Mentors, Affiliation Users 


Accounts created within the Student Learning Portal (SLP) are assigned a role that provides the ability to perform specific actions within the system. Two of these roles can be combined to create a more advanced and unrestricted permission level (see Dual Roles for School Personnel). The information below outlines the differences between the Affiliation User and Mentor role as well as how to request this dual role option for you or another user.
