Editing Course and Section Information

The information presented by the Courses and Sections Application is edited in different ways depending on the kind of information.

Course Information

The course title, number, credits, prerequisite, notes, and description come from the University Catalog. This information can only be changed through the curriculum revision process. Contact the Curriculum Coordinator for your department. Once the catalog has been published, the college will update this information to reflect the published catalog changes.

Editable Section-specific Information

Instructors can edit their course sections, as can the editors of a given section's originating site. These are the editable portions of course sections:

  • Title. Banner and the schedule of classes often abbreviate course and section titles. Instructors and editors can edit the titles to eliminate those abbreviations and to account for special topics sections.
  • Description.
  • Syllabus.
  • Image.

Section Information from PatriotWeb

Much of the section-specific information comes directly from PatriotWeb. This includes the section number, instructor, date and time, and room. If this information is incorrect, it needs to be updated in PatriotWeb. Contact the Scheduling Coordinator for your department. PatriotWeb section information is imported into CHSSWeb nightly and will updated on the website the following day.

If sections are added or deleted, the need to be added or deleted to PatriotWeb first. The website will show the update the following day.
