Take a look below for information related to common questions and issues raised by staff members.



How do I get the most up-to-date list of students enrolled on my Trinity Elective?

  • Login to SITS via The option for ‘Student Lists’ should appear in the bar across the top of the page.  When you click on this, you will be brought to a further page where you can access ‘Module Class List’.

What happens if a student wants to change into/out of a Trinity Elective?

  • Please note that there is a no change of mind policy. However, if a student is facing difficulties, which the module co-ordinator cannot resolve, the co-ordinator should contact the Chair of the Trinity Electives Sub-Committee.

There is a discrepancy between the student lists on Blackboard and SITS for my Trinity Elective

  • Student lists for modules can be fluid at the start of each semester.  SITS will carry the most up-to-date list of students for your Trinity Elective.

I can’t access my Trinity Elective module in Blackboard

  • Please ensure that you are assigned to at least one teaching event for your Trinity Elective in CMIS.  This can be checked with the Central Timetabling Unit.

How is the module assessment pattern (MAP) for my module set up in SITS?

  • Please contact your School Assessment Manager (normally the School Admin Manager) in the first instance to ensure that you are set up as a marker for the module and that the module is open in SITS to be marked. 
  • If the issue cannot be resolved within your School, please e-mail

At what times can Trinity Elective modules be timetabled?

Trinity Electives have protected hours for timetabling purposes, these are:

  • Tuesday: 9-10 a.m. & 10-11 a.m.
  • Thursday: 4-5 p.m. & 5-6 p.m.
  • Friday: 9-10 a.m.

How many of the designated Trinity Elective hours can I use for my module?

  • Eligible students may only take one Trinity Elective in a semester, therefore, module co-ordinators may use all of the hours indicated above to schedule module activities, e.g., lectures, workshops, tutorials, term-time assessments etc…

Where can I find a list of Trinity Electives and their module codes?

How do I get a missing Trinity Elective module mark for a student?
