If your students accidentally pay for TopHat, we will not be able to facilitate a refund. Please be sure your courses are part of our campus licensing before inviting students or announcing TopHat to your classes.

Steps to Sync Your Roster

On-demand roster sync or manual roster sync can be used when you don't want to wait for the nightly roster sync to run. 

  1. View the list of courses in Top Hat and select the desired course. 

  2. Click on Settings for your course.

  3. Click on LTI 1.3 LMS SYNC.

  4. In the Roster Sync box, notice that your roster is automatically synced every day at 1:00 AM.

    1. To sync your roster now or view a student's course access status, go to the Student Manager (this will be a hyperlink from within your Top Hat course).

  5. Click on the blue "Sync Roster" button on the far right-hand side of the screen.

  6. After refreshing the tab the students will appear in the student list. You will also notice that the banner running across the top of your course now lists your last successful sync.

After these steps, the current roster will be enrolled in your TopHat course. Students who already have TopHat accounts will be automatically enrolled. You can easily send invitations to students who do not have accounts. Follow the link below to review the documentation for Advanced Brightspace Integration.
