Instructor Step-by-Step:

Roster Management

Knightweb enrollments are entered into myCourses automatically by CIT.  In addition, all faculty and staff members are automatically added to myCourses.  Use these instructions to add teaching assistants,  other faculty members, staff members, or to remove students who have withdrawn from a course.


Note on Drop/Adds and Withdrawals

Drops/adds are taken care of automatically.  However, withdrawals made after the drop date are left on the knightweb rosters and given a W for the course grade.  Therefore, those students remain on the roster and must be removed manually if an instructor wishes to do so.  CIT is unable to add/delete individuals from a roster without the faculty member’s permission. Please do not ask students to contact myCourses to be added or removed from a course.
