Create a Course Request Form

A course request form consists of sections that contain courses for students to choose from. When creating a course request form, you create sections, add descriptions and courses to a section, and determine how many courses within a section a student may choose.

Before creating a course request form, ensure that you are working in the correct year, since all course request tasks affect the selected year. To check what year you are working in and, if necessary, make a change, see Course Request Settings.

To simplify the process of creating a course request form, we recommend that you first create course groups. This way, you can add the course groups when creating your course request form. For more information, see Create a Course Group.

  1. On the navigation bar, click Setup > Course Requests > Course Request Forms.
  2. At the bottom of the Course Request Forms page, click New Form.
  3. In Form Name, type the name of your course request form.
