Set Up a Class Mailing List That Is Automatically Updated

The following instructions are for individuals listed as instructors with the Registrar's office. Follow the steps below to set up your class mailing lists. Once you have successfully created your class list, you will receive a confirmation email with the email address for the list. Emails sent to this address will be delivered to all students registered in the class.

  1. Go to ASW.
  2. If prompted, log in with your Net-ID and password. Note: If you are already logged into another campus service during your current browsing session, you will be taken directly to the ASW home page.
  3. Click on "Manage Lists".
  4. Click on "Manage Class Lists".
  5. Select one or more classlists under the heading "Classlist not created".
  6. Click on "Create selected classlist(s)"

The list should start working after the servers update at the top of the hour (Lists created between midnight and 6:00 a.m. will start working at 6:00 a.m.). Class lists automatically update if anyone drops or adds the class. Lists are updated early in the morning, Tuesday through Saturday.
