Setting Up a New Semester Tips

As you set up your course for the new semester, you might find these items helpful:

Copying a Class

  • If you have already created Class(es) in a previous semester, the Course Manager includes an option to copy the Class(es) and the Section(s) so that you do not have to repeat setting up everything again.  
  • Click here to review the instructions on how to copy a class.
  • Click here to review the differences between copying a Class with its Section(s) and copying a Class without its Section(s).

Archiving a Class

  • Archive class(es) from previous semester(s) will remove the class(es) from displaying in any list or report within the Course Manager or Student Portal. The class(es) will not be deleted, but it will appear in the Archived Classes list under the Archive tab in the Classes section.
  • This will make it easier for you to locate the class(es) and the related information in your current semester instead of going through a long list that include class(es) from previous semester(s).  It will also reduce the possibility of students registering for the wrong class, because the archived classes from the previous semester(s) are not displayed on the list for them to select from.
