Using time slicer for 2 dates

So I have a time slice going off of registration end date, it gets all of the enrolled, dropped, graduated students for this date. The problem is there are students who also start in this time frame that I want to list as new starts. I am new to power bit but other programming languages I would write an if statement or something along those lines. The problem is the slicer does quarters, years, months I am really unsure of how to approach this.

Here is a link to the layout https://imgur.com/a/JeBjx

 

How I have enrolled etc I would like to add new starts that fall within this date, even if i do it how i do hours and total students.

Here is an example, the timeslicer uses reg end date.

                     Name         Student ID      StartDate                 EndDate
                   Billy  Bob          3252          1-11-2014               3-5-2016

                   Donny   Dob      2525          1-1-2015                4-3-2017

When you have 2 date columns, the complexity goes up. One option is to have 2 slicers, one for start date and the other for end date (just use a drop down list for both). You need to write a dax measure to manage the filtering on both columns. Something like this would work. 

 

Total hours = calculate([total hours],filter(table, table[start date] >=selectedvalue(table[start date]) && table[end date] <=selectedvalue(table[end date])))
