Note: If a user does not appear in the search results and they are not already in your course, it probably means that their account has not yet been created. Please ask the user to log into so that their account will be created in the system. Once they have logged in at least once, the user can be added to a course site. If the user is not a part of the University of Illinois system, contact for more information.

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