A newly-created course space may take up to 24 hours before its roster is uploaded, depending on the time at which the course space is created.

Rosters are loaded into Compass the Thursday before the first day of classes, but you may not see an Illinois Compass 2g course space for a few reasons:
  • Your instructor may have hidden the course space from students while he or she adds course content.
  • The course space may not have been requested at the time that rosters were loaded (rosters are loaded the within 24 hours of a Compass space being requested, so you should check back periodically to see if the space has been added).
  • The course may not be taught on Illinois Compass 2g and is instead on Moodle ( or another learning management system. Check your instructor's syllabus to see if an alternate website is listed.
If you are a student who has just registered for a course, it may take up to 3 days for the course to appear in your Illinois Compass 2g course list; contact your instructor if you need more immediate access to the course space. If it has been longer than 3 days since you registered for a course, and you still do not see it listed, contact the Technology Services Help Desk at 217-244-7000 or
