Add an existing user to the Classlist

Classlist is a directory of names, emails, and group settings that provides you with quick access to a full list of the participants in your course. By default, enrollment data is determined by the Registrar’s Office/Albert.

Common uses cases for manually adding a user to your course site include students who are auditing your class or acting as a teaching assistant, providing access to another faculty member, or adding a faculty assistant who was not originally listed in Albert as a course admin.

The official SIS roles are listed as Instructor or Student. If you add them manually, you see Manual next to the role.
