Generally, students are enrolled automatically into their courses' Moodle sites, within 48 hours of registering for the class on Banner. Manual enrollment allows instructors to adjust permissions for teaching assistants and additional instructors/administrators. You can also use it to expedite access for students who add the course late.

Note: If a user does not appear in the search results and they are not already in your course, it likely means that their account has not been created. Please ask the user to log into https://learn.illinois.edu so that their account will be created in the system. The user can then be added to a course site. If the user is not a part of the University of Illinois system, contact atlas-tlt@illinois.edu for more information.

Note: Manually enrolling a student on a Moodle course will not automatically add them to the course on Banner.
