Here is a suggestion. The "Restricted to Classmates only" displays in the legend/key section of Classmate Profiles when you are not logged into a website. It's icon is a padlock. Since people who see this might want to click on a classmate and view their information if it is unlocked, here are a couple of suggestions.
1. Make this "Restricted to Classmates only" a link that will filter the classmate list not by those that are restricted, but by those "CLASSMATES THAT ARE NOT RESTRICTED" so they can be clicked. Filtering on those classmates that are restricted doesn't make sense, but filtering on classmates that ARE NOT RESTRICTED also makes sense to an admin because he could click and see which profiles are not protected (when the admin is not logged into the website). Maybe change the link name to "Restricted to Classmates only (show unrestricted)" and make the "Show Unrestricted" be the link.
2. Make the PADLOCK icon appear on other SORT BY features and not just [A-Z], but still keep it only displaying when not logged in. For example: [Last Updated] [Newest Members] [Latest Profile Comments] - even though these display a date, they could also display the PADLOCK icon so that non-classmates can know which profiles can be clicked on.
