Requesting Access to iCollege Courses

Instructor Enrollment in iCollege Courses

In accordance with FERPA guidelines, starting May 8th, 2017, any university employee that needs access to protected student data in iCollege courses must have their access approved by the Registrar and/ or Legal Affairs if they are not listed as an “instructor of record” in GoSOLAR.

  • The Instructor of Record may submit a request for an employee to gain access to an iCollege course with the role of TA Full-Access or TA Grader.
    No department chair, associate chair, assistant chair or program director approval required.
  • The Instructor of Record, Program Director, Assistant Chair, Associate Chair, or Department Chair may submit a request for an employee to gain access to an iCollege course with the role of Instructor. If the submitter is the instructor of record they will need their Program Director, Assistant Chair, Associate Chair, or Department Chair to confirm the request.

The Registrar and/or Legal Affairs will approve each request.

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning will enroll the requested employee into the appropriate course with the requested role.

Please allow two (2) business days for access requests requiring approval.
