Creating a Class Email List in Banner

In Banner, instructors can request to create an email list for their course rosters in order to more easily communicate with their students. Please follow the instructions below to set up class email lists in Banner.

NOTE: Once you've requested the list, it will take overnight or up to 24 hours for the creation process to complete. If you need to modify the list or add additional approved email addresses to send from, these changes will also take overnight to process.
