In OneStart, how can instructors view and use class rosters?
If you are the faculty of record for a class, you can use the Faculty Center in OneStart to view class rosters. You will see only class rosters for those classes where you are listed as Primary, Secondary, or Associate Instructor; you won't see other instructors' rosters. To access OneStart, see Logging into OneStart.
Note: OTP access is not necessary to view rosters using the Faculty Center.

If you are unsure whether you are the faculty of record, or if you want that status changed, contact your campus Office of the Registrar.
Users with dual roles in OneStart, such as "student" and "faculty", might have problems viewing class rosters. In OneStart, if you click a student link before viewing a class roster, OneStart establishes the PeopleSoft session in student self-service mode. When that happens, the system blocks you from viewing information specific to the instructor mode, preventing access to class rosters.

These steps should restore your access to student rosters in OneStart. If you continue to have problems, contact your campus Support Center.
