Searching for Classes by Academic Requirements

This section provides an overview of the Search by My Requirements feature and lists the pages used to access this feature.

The Search by My Requirements feature enables students to search for classes based on their degree requirements. The information that appears on the page is based on the student's most recently run advisement report, but the presentation of the information varies from that shown on the My Academic Requirements page because the student using the information intends to enroll in a class.

The main difference between the Search by My Requirements and My Academic Requirements pages is that the course lists include courses offered for the selected term only. Also, whereas the institution may or may not include planned courses on the My Academic Requirements report type, the data included on the Search by My Academic Requirements includes planned courses. As with My Academic Requirements, the data reflects the report type and other advisement setup. Finally, students must be eligible to enroll in order to search for classes by academic requirements.

If your institution selects the Program Guide installation option, then the report that appears in Search by My Academic Requirements looks and operates differently because the data comes from the Program Guide requirements. Also, because no degree audit is performed against Program Guide rules, the report does not indicate whether a degree requirement is satisfied or not.

Using the Search by My Academic Requirements feature, students can access these additional details and perform these actions:

  • Access course detail.

  • Add courses to their planner.

  • View class sections.

  • View wildcard course list information.

  • View information about exceptions and overrides.
