Enrollment and course data such as: which sections need to be created, active students in the system, who is enrolled or withdrawn from a course, or the instructor teaching the course, is passed from PeopleSoft (MySPC) to MyCourses.
Changes made in PeopleSoft will be reflected in MyCourses shortly after they're made, but in some cases, such as course sections and templates, updates can take up to 24 hours to process into MyCourses. This process was never immediate, but in 2021 a new customized integration was written in-house at SPC to aid these processes. This was created because D2L ended the prior method of transferring data from PeopleSoft. With this update, there is a rolling schedule of certain sync jobs running that bring MyCourses up to match was is currently in PeopleSoft.
Therefore, if a student withdraws from your course, or a new instructor is taking over a course (for example), there is a short delay before MyCourses will reflect those changes.
Schedules for Sync Jobs
Requests for Changes Outside of Sync Jobs
User processing (adding new students) is scheduled for twice per day, however, urgent additions and updates can be made by the Academic Technologies team. The same holds true for enrollments. If a student urgently needs to appear in a D2L/MyCourses class list before the next enrollment sync job is run, the Academic Technologies team can process them manually. These are extreme exceptions to the regularly running sync jobs but can be done at the discretion of the Academic Technologies team. For requests like this, please reach out to email@example.com.
