-====== Subject Areas ====== 
-**Purpose**:​ Use this area to add, edit, and/or delete Subject Areas or Courses in to your Accudemia account.

-{{:​accudemia:​7:​manual:​administration:​accudemia-administration18.jpg?​nolink&​250|}} 
- 
-Accudemia lists your Subject Areas or Courses in the main section on this Subject Area screen. For tracking Center Attendance it is only necessary to define these Subject Areas. Through the use of Accudemia only tracking the Subject Areas for Center Attendance you do not have to specify the Class information when assigning Tutors that can help with these Subject Areas/​Courses in your Center. If you are only tracking Center Services then these Subject Areas are not necessary for your Center to setup. 
- 
-<note important>​**Subject Areas** are used college-wide while **Services** are specific for each **Center** so be careful when modifying them if you have access to this section. 
-</​note>​ 
- 
-<note tip>By enabling this option in the //**Control Panel > Walk-ins**//​ or //**Control Panel > Appointments**//​ you can report on the **Students'​** needs for each **Subject Area** in your **Center**. ​ 
-It should be noted too that if enabled **Students** may be allowed to sign-in to multiple **Services** while they can only ever sign-in to one **Subject Area**. ​ This means that reports on **Subject Areas** will not ever have hours that are duplicated in them.
