Getting an ICON Course Site


About ICON Course Sites 

ICON course sites are available for Registrar-affiliated and non-Registrar-affiliated courses or for instructor testing and development purposes.

Note Registrar-affiliated courses are those that are tracked by the Office of the Registrar (i.e., “normal” courses with UI course numbers). Students register for these courses in MyUI and their enrollment is automatically updated within the course site.

About Registrar-affiliated Course Creation

An ICON course site is created automatically for each Registrar-affiliated course that exists in MAUI/MyUI. Independent Study courses are created in ICON once a student registers for the course in MyUI.

A process runs each night that moves course and enrollment data from MAUI to ICON. Changes made in MAUI will be passed to ICON the next night, and then the courses will appear in ICON the next day.

How Instructors are Added to Registrar-affiliated Courses in ICON

Instructors are automatically enrolled in ICON courses if they have completed FERPA training at least once.

See the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost’s policy on FERPA training at or the Office of the Registrar’s FERPA/Privacy Information page at for more information
