Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Records strongly encourage the review of class rosters in MaineStreet each semester after the end of the add/drop period in order to verify student enrollment. If a student does not appear on the roster of a class he or she is attending, or does appear on the roster but is not attending the class, please direct him or her to the department/school or dean’s office to resolve the discrepancy. Graduate students should be referred to the Graduate School.
Class roster accuracy is a basic step in ensuring the safety of the campus and our students. Any concerns for a student should be directed to the Office of Student Life at 581-1406.
Instructions on accessing class rosters in the Faculty Center are provided below.

About the Class Roster Details
The MaineStreet Class Roster provides a variety of information pertaining to the students associated with a class. The Enrollment Status drop down list offers options for displaying the list of students: All, Dropped, Enrolled, or Waiting. The status of Enrolled is the default setting meaning when the class roster first displays, it’s showing only those with an enrolled status. Students that have been dropped will display when the Dropped status is selected. Students on the Wait List will display when the status of Waiting is selected, and the All option shows everyone regardless of enrollment status.
Other columns containing helpful information are the Add Date, Drop Date and Status Notes columns. The Add indicates the date on which the student was enrolled in the class. This may be useful for monitoring new enrollments after the start of the semester. The Drop Date column will show the date on which a student dropped or withdrew from the class.
The Status Notes column provides details associated with the enrollment status. If a student has withdrawn, the Status Notes column will also display a “Withdrawn” message. (Note: Withdrawn students will appear on the “Enrolled” list.) Students who were added to the Wait List and later removed will have a “was Waitlisted” message in the Status Notes column.
When viewing the students with the Waiting enrollment status, each student’s position on the Wait List is shown in the Status Notes column.
Values that display in the Grade Basis column reflect the grading option for the student. The most commonly seen Grade Bases are: Graded for the letter grade (A-F) option; P/NP indicates the Pass/Fail grading option; Audit is shown for students who opted to audit the class.
The Units column specify the number of credits for which the student is enrolled. (It’s most important to review this when the class is offered for variable credit.) The Program and Plan column indicates each student’s college and major. The Level column provides the student’s current class level based on overall earned credit hours.
The Contact Information tab reveals the preferred phone number and email address for each student.
Class Rosters for Combined Sections
If the class is one of a combined section group, the student listing includes enrollments for both classes. If the combined section group consists of more than course, the Subject and Catalog Nbr columns indicate in which course the student is enrolled. Additionally, the topic of the class will display if one exists.
And, if the locations of the sections are different, those will display as well.
