9.2 Creating a Reserve Capacity Enrollment Requirement

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for creating a reserve capacity enrollment requirement in ctcLink.

Audience:  Registration staff.

Reserve capacities are used to hold a specified number of seats in a class section in the class schedule. Colleges can use an enrollment requirement to identify the students that are allowed to enroll in the reserved seats.

Creating a Reserve Capacity Enrollment Requirement

Set Up and Assign Student Group(s)

The first step is to set up a Student Group that will be assigned to students that meet the requirement for the reserved class seats if the college is not using an existing student group.

Navigation:  NavBar > Navigator > Set Up SACR > Common Definitions > Student Group Table

  1. Use the Setting Up Student Groups QRG to set-up a new Student Group if needed.

  1. Student Groups are controlled by security. Users must be given security to see specific Student Groups. Use the Student Group Security QRG for assigning Student Group security.
    1. Enter the User ID.
    2. Enter an Academic Institution.
    3. Select the Search button.
    4. Input Student Groups the user should have access to.
    5. If the user already has existing student groups, select the Add a New Row [+] icon on the right to add a new row.
    6. Use the Lookup Glass to find the desired Student Group in the left column.
    7. Select the Save button.

For reserve capacity to work, do we also need to adjust the class association like when we add an enrollment requirement for each class?

Hi Bre, Reserve capacity is added under Maintain Schedule of Classes--separate from Enrollment Requirements. Reserve Capacity identifies a specific population of students and reserves seats in that specific class section.
