My data set is large. Approximately 55,000 Rows and 8 Columns. I have truncated the report for the sake of the attachment and removed/replaced sensitive information. Definitions of data in the attached report is listed at the bottom of this post.
I want to identify separate groups of StuNums (Students) that meet varying conditional criteria so that I can make sure to send appropriate messaging to each group of students.
Student Groups Criteria:
I have tried keeping it simple with a Pivot Table, and Slicers. Then have gone so far as to use PowerPivot and PowerQuery. I am convinced that this is not as complicated as I have made it to be at this point. Hoping a fresh set of eyes can help.
Definitions of data in attached report.

Given all that you've tried already, you clearly are something of an Excel power user. On that basis, I'm going to assume that just pointing you in another direction--one you didn't mention--might suffice, and give you the opportunity to say "I did it myself."
You don't mention the newest Dynamic Array functions--UNIQUE, FILTER, SORT--so (assuming you have the most recent release of Excel), let me introduce you to them by means of the attached video, which happens to be how I became acquainted with them late last year. I don't know for sure that they'll serve your need, but I think they will, and your more intimate knowledge with those criteria will serve you in good stead in forming the criteria section of FILTER.
Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I9DtFOVPIg
And here's another resource with examples and further references on constructing the criteria using boolean expressions: https://exceljet.net/excel-functions/excel-filter-function

How can they have a grade if they're only scheduled and not active, so you're really looking at comparing two lists, List#1 is who is actively enrolled with letter grades of W, WF and WP that have not scheduled to re-enroll

@Yea_So Great question! This is because at any time, there are students whose schedules are being edited/changed for a variety of reasons. Also, some courses grades post before/after others. So many moving pieces.
