Note: A student enrollment is automatically created when enrolling an instructor or TA. This allows those with instructor or course master access to view the course as a student.

Select "Manage Roster" from the "Instructor Links" drop-down menu


Click "Add Student" above the "Student Enrollments" table

If you do not see this link, then your current enrollment does not have sufficient privileges to add students (or instructors) to the course.

The Student Enrollments table (seen below) contains a full listing of all student enrollments in the course. This includes students in the grade book, students that have withdrawn, and student enrollments of instructors.


Enter student's e-mail address


Click "Check"

Pressing the Check button will perform a system check to see if the person has an account. There are several possible outcomes from this system check. Two of those outcomes will be mentioned here.


The person already has a user account and can be added as a student

In this scenario, you will be able to assign the user a Unique ID and decide whether or not to send the user an automated email informing them of their new enrollment.


The person does not have an account

In this scenario, a new account will be created for the user in which you will need to provide a first and last name along with an institution name for the new user.


Once finished, you will be redirected back to the Manage Roster page where the new student will be listed in the Student Enrollments table.
