Student Adds and Drops

Located in the Main Menu, under “Manage Course Users”, the “Automated Student Enrollment Manager” contains several options. Two critical settings that control adds and drops are:

  • Adds - This should always be left enabled. This allows the nightly processes to update your class roster with new student enrollments.
  • Drops - This feature is supposed to enable expiration of enrollments for users that have been removed from the roster, but due to our automated nightly processes, it is recommended that this be left disabled.

Another option worth mentioning is:
“Update roster now” - This option is used to reconcile your class roster with the most current enrollments, however, because Lon-Capa receives enrollment feeds nightly from Banner, your roster will be automatically updated each night.
