Cross-list Code: TR001
TR = Traditional
3 digits for the number of cross-lists that exist with two leading zeros

Non-Traditional Cross-Listing

The CRN capacity of the two (or more) cross-lists add up to the overall cross-list cap.

Cross-list Code: NT001
NT = Non-Traditional

When registration begins, it is critical for deans, chairs, and coordinators to review course enrollments and waitlists weekly. Doing this often and early will help to determine where we need faculty to teach new sections, and help our students by introducing new sections.

Term

 

Timelines to review cancellation, waitlist, etc. reports

Summer   End of March - Mid-June
Fall   End of March - Mid-October
Spring   End of November - Mid-March

When the term ends, review the reports and assess how well your department scheduled!

  • Were the section enrollments at 80% at census?
  • Were there less cancellations than the prior, like-term?
  • How were low-enrolled sections addressed?
  • Were adjuncts available when new course sections were needed?
    • Identify areas for improvement and celebrate the successes.

Please see the Student Evaluations of Faculty webpage for more information.
