Upload Class Rosters

This topic covers how to upload class rosters into existing classes at the school.

  1. Select Classes on the left sidebar to view your school’s list of active classes.

  2. On the Classes page, click the Upload Class Rosters button.

  3. Select Download a CSV template here in the grey box on the right side of the page.

  4. Open the CSV file in Microsoft Excel, and fill out the required rows and columns.

    Do not change the column headers, as this will prevent a successful file upload.

  5. The required CSV columns and their values include:

    • Class ID: This is the Engrade class ID assigned to each class and will be added to the downloaded template file automatically.
    • Student ID: This is the Engrade student ID assigned to each student. A separate row is required for each student in each class.

    Remove all class rows that are not being updated from the CSV or you will see a number of error messages.


  6. If you are using a Windows computer, save the file as a Comma Separated Values (.csv) file.

  7. If you are using a Mac computer, you will need to save your CSV file in a slightly different format. If you use the default Comma Separated Values (.csv) file format, you may be unable to upload your file.

    • While in Excel, select File and Save As.
    • Under Format, select Windows Comma Separated (.csv) from the drop-down menu, and save your file.

  8. On the Upload Class Rosters page, choose to either:

    • Overwrite Class Students: Overwrite the students already enrolled in classes with your new class rosters.
    • Only Add New Students: Add only additional students to class rosters.

  9. Once your file is complete and saved to your computer as a .CSV, select Choose File on the Upload Class Rosters page.

  10. Select your CSV file from your computer.

  11. Click the green Upload CSV button to upload the class rosters. You will then see your new class rosters populated on the Classes page.
