Should you need to email all students in your class, we recommend you do so via Blackboard. (

If you prefer to use the email tool in SOLAR, you will need to select fewer than 100 students at a time and send out multiple emails. The “Notify” option found on the SOLAR Class Roster page only works for fewer than 100 students at a time. Lists can be separated as needed and sent multiple times. Below are panel shots of this process.

Step 1:

The "Notify" option is found on the SOLAR Class Roster page.

Step 2:

The notification is created on the following screen.

Should you have any questions, please contact Jaime Wicks in the Registrar’s Office or TLT’s support team at (631) 632-2777.
