Beginning in the spring 2019 semester, all 4CD faculty will begin using an upgraded
rostering system through InSite. This roster makes multiple improvements over the
Instructors' class rosters, drop rosters, grades, and add codes will be in one location.
Each section will have a single waitlist.
Instructors will have control of add codes.
Add codes will be secure and impossible to exchange or sell.
Instructors can revoke add codes.
Please watch this short video overview of the new system.
For step-by-step instructions on how to complete each function of the Multi-Purpose
Roster, please watch the video tutorials. For your convenience, step-by-step text
instructions are hyperlinked for viewing and/or printing as well.
If you would like hands on training before the Spring semester begins, please sign

InSite. Click "Resources," then "Professional Development Workshops."

Frequently asked questions
How will the add process change for my students?
Students will receive a notification through their InSite account after you have authorized
them to add your class. The student can then add your course through their online
education plan via InSite. For more on the student view, see Late Registration Has Changed.
Will I still receive an email with my first day rosters?
Yes, you will receive an email with first day rosters for the Spring 2019 semester.
When can I begin adding students to my classes?
The authorization codes will be available two days prior to the start of the class.
Faculty can begin assigning authorization codes to students at that time, but it’s
important to note that these students will be able to register only after the class
There is no submit/confirm button on the Grade page where you check off students who
didn't attend the first class, enter drop dates, submit grades. How do I submit this
The data is entered and saved automatically as you go. There is no need to click
any additional submit or confirm buttons.
I accidentally clicked "Never Attended" or entered a date to drop the wrong student.
How do I fix it?
Entering a drop date or selecting “never attended” results in the student being dropped
from the class immediately. If you are within the add period, you can grant add authorization
to the student using the new add authorization process. (The student will need to
confirm this add via his/her InSite account.) Drop date corrections outside of the
add period can be submitted to the Admissions & Records Office.
I accidentally entered the wrong grade for a student. How long do I have to fix it
before it becomes official?
Grades are finalized overnight, just after midnight. So instructors have until midnight
to make grade corrections. After this, instructors will need to use the paper Change
of Grade form through the Admissions & Records Office.
Do I need to add or drop students in my Canvas course as well?
No. InSite and Canvas communicate and a student will automatically be added or dropped
from your Canvas course based on the action you take in InSite. There is a short
turnaround time while this digital communication happens; your student will have access
to your Canvas course within 24 hours.
I have a high school student who I authorized to add into my class, but the student
doesn't see the Register button via InSite?
At this point, you will grant permission to high school students the same way you
do for any student, but your high school student will need to visit Admissions & Records
in person to finalize the registration process.
I have a student struggling to compete the add process. Any tips?
Make sure the student has added your course and section number to their ed plan via
InSite. This is frequently the missing step. For students needing more assistance,
encourage them to visit the Admissions office.
