The instructor(s) of an iCollege course is determined by the instructor’s information found in GoSolar. GoSolar is the official source of instructors.
In an iCollege course, instructors can add university employees via the Classlist using pre-defined “roles” that do not include permissions to view FERPA protected data. These roles are usually labeled as “Designer”.
If an employee needs access to FERPA protected data, their access must be 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 is 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.
