The Classlist tool provides a list of course participants and their roles in the course (Student, TA, Instructor, etc.) and is the central area for managing course participants in D2L Brightspace.

Use Classlist to view who is enrolled in the course, to enroll new users, to send email or instant messages, or to view shared locker files. To see a description of Brightspace roles with their descriptions and permissions, visit Roles and Permissions.

NOTE: The Classlist will be automatically imported into Brightspace through Banner enrollments. Teaching Assistants must be manually enrolled to have course access. To enroll a TA or second instructor to a course, follow the Enroll a User instructions below.

**If you need to unenroll a user, please submit a support request through the TLS support portal. Instructors do not have the ability to remove users from their classlist to avoid the registration system getting out of synch with Brightspace.**

NOTE: Carleton students taking courses for academic credit must register formally through the Registrar’s Office to gain entry to the course. Formally registered students will be automatically enrolled to courses via the Banner information system and should not be manually added. The Registrar’s enrollment database (i.e. Banner) updates Brightspace about every 3 hours.
