9.2 Adding or Changing Course Attributes and Values on Classes

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for adding or changing course attributes and course attribute values on classes in ctcLink.

Audience: Class Builders.

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 ctcLink 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.

    • Use the minus sign [-] instead of the plus sign [+] to remove unneeded information; then add correct information following the same protocol as in steps 1 through 8.
