    Spring 2015 Courses

    *Faculty NO LONGER need to fill out a course request form. However, if you want to merge enrollment of multiple sections into one course site, need assistance to copy content from previous taught course, please fill out the online merge enrollment form. Once multiple course sections are merged, making changes to the course ID, name, or section number is not recommended. So please make sure you have verified each course section number and be sure to enter correct information and click “submit” button only once!

    *Students’ last course access date is two weeks after the end of the semester. The end of access date will apply to all courses (16 week regular, late starting, and short-term courses) unless instructor make changes.
