Set up SIS roster import through Clever

This article is for administrators.

Clever setup

To set up the Google Classroom roster sync, the District Administrator in Clever and a Super Administrator in Google Workspace must use Clever to initiate the process. One person may hold both roles.

If your district is interested in Google Classroom rostering, create a Clever account.

  • Clever should respond to your request within 24 hours.
  • Set up takes about one day.
  • Many districts can launch within a week.

If you have a Clever account, you can request roster import in your Clever dashboard.

What if someone exists in Clever but not in Google Workspace for Education?

If a district uses ClassLink, can they use the roster import feature?

Next steps will be announced as soon as possible.
