Problems viewing a class roster
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, such as student and faculty, might have problems viewing class rosters. In One.IU, if you click a student link before viewing a class roster on the same browsing session, your browser establishes a 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.
To fix this problem:
- Close all browsers.
- Clear your browser cookies, cache, and history. For instructions, see:
- Log into One.IU again, clicking only instructor links.
If you continue having problems, contact your campus Support Center.
