More Information on Class Rosters in Pathway

You should periodically check your class roster in Pathway for inaccuracies.

Checking for enrollment

Check that everyone who is attending your class is officially enrolled. If there are students who are attending your class but are not officially enrolled, inform them they need to either stop attending the class or get officially enrolled.

Officially enrolling after the deadline

Students can add classes via Pathway through the first week of the semester. After that, they must get an instructor signature to add a class late. The steps for getting officially enrolled in a class after the first week are:

  • Print an add/drop form (PDF) or pick one up from Registration and Records or student services/advising office in their academic unit.
  • Fill out the add/drop form with the class that needs to be added.
  • Have the instructor for the class initial in the "Late Add" box and sign on the end of the line for that class.
  • Have their academic adviser sign the form at the bottom.
  • Take the add/drop form to Registration and Records to be manually put in the class. If they are unable to bring the form in person, they may also mail or fax the form.

Checking for missing students

Make sure there are not students on the roster who are no longer attending. It is important for Registration and Records to know if students stopped attending class and the specific date they stopped attending for Title IV Financial Aid regulations. If you find students on your roster who have never attended or have stopped attending, you should use the UMKC Connect system to complete the attendance survey. If your course is not utilizing the Connect attendance survey, send an email to inform our office of the last date the student attended your class. A letter will be sent to the student notifying them that they have not officially withdrawn and giving them the procedures for doing so at this time.

The notify buttons provide a way for you to send a mass email to all your students or just to those that you select. All students will receive the exact same email.

Notify Selected Students

  1. Select Notify Selected Students.
  2. Make sure each student on your roster has a check box next to their student ID number.
  3. If you wish to send an email to one or more students but not the entire class, you can select the students by checking the box.
  4. Select the Notify Selected Students button

Notify Listed Students

  1. If you want to send an email to ALL the students on the roster, select the Notify Listed Students button.
  2. You will be taken to a screen where you can type the email you want to send to your students.

Class rosters in Canvas

You will need to be listed as the instructor of record in Pathway to have access to a specific class in Canvas. Your department must request that for you. See the procedures for scheduling classes and classrooms for information on who the approved scheduler in your department is. 

Note: if you have a graduate assistant to teaching assistant who needs to have access to the Canvas site, they will also need to be added as such in Pathway for them to get access.

You must have an active appointment in the Human Resources database to be given instructor or staff access to Pathway. As part of this process you will be assigned an Employee ID number.

  • The HR facilitator in your academic unit must submit a paper application for your HR appointment.
  • This form must be signed by the instructor/faculty member before they can be submitted. If the instructor is a volunteer and will not be getting compensation from the University, and if they will be asked to assign grades or access other areas of the Pathway Student Information System or the Canvas e-learning system, they will still need to get a faculty appointment and EMPLID.

Canvas class rosters are copied from the Pathway class roster representing those students who are officially enrolled for the class.

However, when students officially drop a class, they are not deleted from the Canvas class roster so that their assignments and other coursework do not get deleted.

Canvas class rosters are updated every 4 hours during the week.

Students must be officially enrolled in a class to attend it. This includes having access to the class in Canvas.

If you have a student who needs to finish an incomplete from a previous semester and you would like for them to have access to your Canvas site for the current semester, send an email with their name, student ID number, the class which they need access to and the reason you are requesting the exception to registrar@umkc.edu. The appropriate authority in Registration and Records will verify the information you have submitted and send approval to Information Technology Services to get the student added to the class in Canvas.
