Adding Course Attributes and Values in the Class Schedule of Classes

Navigation:  Main Menu > Curriculum Management > Schedule of Classes > Maintain Schedule of Classes

Use course attributes for institutional research purposes, reporting, and to print repetitive text in the schedule of classes, for example, Offered in Fall Only.  Course attributes are attached to classes on the Basic Data Page.  Unlike requirement designations, Course Attributes do not transfer to the PeopleSoft Academic Advisement application. An example of a course attribute used on classes is Course Intent (SINT) with course attribute values of:  Academic, Personal Enrichment, or Workforce.

  1. To add a Course Attribute to the Schedule of Classes, search for the class in Maintain Schedule of Classes.  Fill in Search Criteria for the Academic Institution, Term, Subject and Catalog Number.
