Class Fields Explained

Class Name

Name of the class (See Tips & Examples). 


The status of a class can affect whether it is displayed in Class Listings Tables or in the Parent Portal. Learn more about Class Status.


Locations are a setting in your database (Gear icon > Settings > General > Locations - left menu) that can be used to separate business activities as well as set access permissions for different Jackrabbit Users. Learn more about Locations in Jackrabbit.


Rooms (or studios, pools, etc.) can be used to filter your classes (e.g., find all classes in Studio A). View your class calendar by room (helpful when creating your class schedule). Create room values from the Gear (icon) > Settings > General > Drop-down Lists (left menu). See Drop-down Lists for more details.        


Sessions group classes held within a specified time frame. This is important for comparative analysis reporting. A session can cover an entire year or specific parts of a year (i.e., Winter season). Learn more about Class Sessions.

Class Start/End /Registration Start Dates 

When does the class start and finish? What is the date that registration for this class opens? If a start is not entered, Jackrabbit will not display the class on any of your calendars or schedules.  Tip: Set the End Date of a perpetual class well into the future so that the class will continue to show up on Jackrabbit calendars and schedules.  The registration start date controls when students can be enrolled in the class and prevents enrollment from starting until you are ready.


Check the box(es) for the days the class meets. This allows you to sort and filter by the day of the week a class meets. With the days the class meets selected, the classes will also show on calendars or schedules.

Start/End Times & Duration 

What time does the class start and finish? The duration field will be automatically calculated based on those times but you are able to edit it. If you post your tuition by total hours the duration field is required for the calculation of tuition fees.

Has a Registration Fee?

The checkbox defaults to selected = Yes. Clear the checkbox for classes that you do not charge a registration fee for, e.g., your summer classes. Students enrolling in the class online, or being enrolled using the Quick Registration Form, will not be charged a registration fee.

Tuition Fee

The Tuition Fee is the amount charged to enrolled students each billing cycle when you post your tuition by class fee. Example: An organization that bills monthly would enter what one student would pay to attend the class each month.

Per Day

See Add Per Day / Multiple Meeting Classes if your class fees are based on how many times a student attends the class during the week.

Exclude from requiring payment during Parent Portal enrollment

If your organization is set to require payment in the Parent Portal when parents enroll students in classes and events, this option will be available. 

Select the check box to exclude payment processing for this specific class during Parent Portal enrollment. The parent will see messaging in the Cart to indicate that while the fee posted, the payment will be required at a later date.

Tuition Billing Method

The Tuition Billing Method tells Jackrabbit whether you bill (post tuition) based on a class tuition fee or if you bill by total hours of class instruction. See Billing Methods for more information.


Is the class specific to one gender or open to all? A gender filter can be turned on for Online Registrations from the Gear (icon) > Settings > Online Registration > Settings (left menu) > Class Search Settings (section) and scroll down to Class Search/Filter Settings.
Edit your drop-down lists for gender to include more inclusive options in addition to male and female from the Gear (icon) > Settings > General > Drop-down Lists (left menu) > Students > Gender

Min Age / Max Age 

Minimum and maximum age requirements for the class, including years and months. The min/max age can be used to set age restrictions for classes when enrolling. 

Cutoff Date 

If a cutoff date is entered (optional), the student's age on the cutoff date is used to determine if the student meets the class age requirements. 

*Category 1, 2, and 3 

Jackrabbit uses Categories to organize your database. Category 1 is the most important one because it organizes your revenue and enrollment. Categories 2 & 3 are subcategories and provide levels or sections. Learn more about Class Categories.

Max Size / Max Wait

The maximum number of students allowed in the class or on a waitlist.
