Understanding the Course Catalog
When you first set up your course catalog, make sure to do some preliminary work to research how your institution structures course prerequisites and corequisites, and how new requisites are created and approved. Our course requisite design lets you structure requirements that can be shared among many courses. Requirements can encompass prerequisite courses, grade point average (GPA) and unit requirements, and course lists, among other factors. To minimize duplicate data entry, plan your requisite requirements carefully. In addition, note that the data you enter in the course catalog is provided by default to the schedule of classes. This feature is key because it saves you data entry time when you schedule classes. The Course Catalog (CRSE_CATALOG) component uses effective dating, which enables you to track historical course changes and to prepare for curriculum changes in the future.
