Managing roles and users

Main user roles and permissions

The most common staff user roles on SOL include:


  • Unit Leader - able to view and edit all content, and release grades
  • Tutor - able to edit all content, but cannot release grades
  • Non-Editing Tutor - able to view all content, but cannot edit
  • Course Leader - able to view and edit all content - should only be listed on Course Pages

Staff already enrolled on a unit or course page are no longer able to assign Unit Leader, Tutor, Non-Editing Tutor or Course Leader roles to another member of staff.  


Requesting a role


Unit Leader and Course Leader information is now referenced from the Quercus database.  Because of this, these roles must be approved by your School Executive Officer and added to Quercus before the role can be assigned in SOL.

Unit Leader

You can request to be Unit Leader on a unit page via the enrolment self-service.  Further instructions can be found here.  Please note that requests for Unit Leader enrolment may take up to 48 hours.

Tutor and Non-editing Tutor

You can request to be a Tutor or Non-editing Tutor on a unit page via the enrolment-self service.  Further instructions can be found here.  Please contact LTU@solent.ac.uk if you would like to be enrolled as a Tutor on a page that may contain sensitive information.  

Course Leader

If you would like to be listed as Course Leader on a Course Page, please contact Student.Registry@solent.ac.uk.  They will need to confirm your Course Leader status.  Once confirmed, your role will be added to SOL automatically after it has been recorded in Quercus.  Please note that we no longer add Course Leaders to Unit Pages.
