  • You are a new student. You will not be able to log in to iCollege until two (2) weeks before classes begin.

  • If you're checking courses before the semester begins: Courses are not available to students until 2 weeks before the semester begins.
  • If you're checking courses during Drop/Add: During drop/add, there is a 1 - 3 business day lag time between when you add your courses and when they will automatically appear in iCollege.
  • If you've never accessed your course in iCollege before: In iCollege, the My Courses widget displays the most recently accessed courses. If you haven't accessed your course yet, it won't show up in your course list.

    To access your course the first time, you can locate it by clicking the View All Courses link at the bottom of your course list. Look in the Unpinned section to find your course(s), or use the Advanced Search option to find your course using the desired search criteria.

  • You can also find a list of all your courses using the All Courses icon along the top of the screen.

If your courses are not listed and you need to get into one or more courses immediately please contact your instructor and ask that they add you to the course. The IIT Technology Service Desk cannot add you to courses.

You are automatically added to an iCollege course based on GoSolar data. However, you are not automatically removed when you drop the course. As such, dropped courses will remain on your course list until the instructor removes you from their iCollege classlist.

Being listed in an iCollege course that you dropped in Go Solar/PAWS will not affect your standing at Georgia State University as long as the course is not listed on your GoSolar/PAWS classlist.

Though it is referred to as "email" in iCollege, iCollege "email" is actually an internal messaging system that is also forwarded to your email address from an email address that cannot accept replies. Accordingly, the only way to reply to an "email" sent to you through iCollege is to log in to iCollege and reply there.

Likewise, you will also get an error message if you try to type an external email address in the TO field of an iCollege email message. You can not use external email addresses in iCollege. You must use the Address Book to select the desired user. Or, you can send messages via your iCollege course Classlist.

Your email will stop working if you have a test or quiz in progress. Once you submit your test/quiz, your iCollege email will work again.
There are 2 main reasons why you don’t see your email messages:

  • By default, you will only see messages from the current iCollege course you've selected.
    In other words, you will not see messages from Course A when you are in Course B. From your iCollege Inbox, click the Filter By drop-down menu and select All Messages to see messages from users in ALL of the iCollege courses. You can change the Filter By option as needed.

  • Your Preview pane is consuming much of your screen space.
    By default, the option “Show the Message Preview pane” is selected. Modify your email settings and de-select the “Show preview pane” option.
