Student Dashboard menu and page not showing in CoursePress Pro

Student Dashboard menu and page not showing in CoursePress Pro.
I deactivated all plugins except WPMUDEV and CoursePress Pro and then switched to a native WP theme (2015).
Students were manually created first as WP users and then registered manually as students to the course in question.
They receive an email but the Dashboard link takes them to a 'courses sign-up' page in the url (no content) which states registrations are not allowed.
Both the My Courses and Dashboard menu is set to be included in the menu but only the Login menu item displays.
