Editing Section Information

 There are four kinds of information about a section that are added by local web editors.

  • Title of the section: If the section-specific title is longer than the 30-character limit in PatriotWeb, editors can spell out the title in full.
  • Section-specific description: Editors can add a description for a section. This is particularly useful for special topics courses. If there is no section-specific description, the catalog description will display as a default.
  • Syllabus: Editors can upload a current syllabus.
  • Image: Editors can upload an image.

This information is stored in the CHSSWeb database. Information for sections for past semesters will always be available.

Follow these steps to edit a section.
