The SSR1000 is a printable copy of the course offerings for a particular term. They are distributed to departments for editing shortly after copying a term from one year to the next. They are then returned to the Schedule Desk to implement the requested changes. See the Scheduling Deadlines page for distribution and due dates.

Please make all changes in RED INK or type in red colored font if editing/submitting electronically.

Write your phone number, SIGN, and DATE your edited SSR1000, then return to the Schedule Desk on or before the deadline. Submissions can be made in person, via email, or through campus mail. If scanning and emailing, please ensure you scan your documents in COLOR so the red will show. Make and keep a copy of your edited SSR1000 before submitting it to the Schedule Desk.

Linking Sections Guide

To Change a Section

To change data, line through incorrect data lightly, and enter correct data.

To Delete a Section

Place "D" at the far left and then lightly line through entire first line of the course.

To Add a Section

Place "A" at far left, and enter all necessary information, either at the bottom of the page, or on an added piece of paper or spreadsheet. Please include all items when adding course, including grading mode.

To Activate/ Inactivate

If an "I" appears after the STATUS: at the far right, the course is Inactive. To make it Open, cross out the "I" and place an "O" for "Open". Enter the maximum enrollment in the MAX: space.

To inactivate a course cross out the "O" and enter "I" at the far left-hand side of the beginning of the first line of the course. An inactive course is a course that is not presently being offered but may become available during the registration period. This will temporarily inactivate registration and the course will not appear in the Schedule of Classes.

Note: Please do NOT make a section Inactive if you know it will not be offered that term—mark it Deleted (see above).

To Cross list

A course can be cross listed with one from another department if approved by Academic Programs. You can check SCADETL to see if your course is a cross listed course. Write the additional CRNs in the space provided. List total students accepted after INT MAX (Internal Maximum).

To Combine

Courses taught together, such as ME 421/521, can be "tied" together, either with the same enrollments, such as 48/48 and total max 48; or they can be 48/48 with a total max enrollment of 96. Different sections of the same course may also share a room and should be combined to ensure the headcount does not exceed room capacity. Write the additional CRNs in the space provided and list total students accepted after INT MAX. "Combine" is functionally the same as "Cross list" and will often be referred to as such by the Schedule Desk.


If a GP room will be needed, check with instructors for specific attributes desired: enhanced room, white board, etc. Record those needs in the space provided. (Review the Valid Classroom Attributes List for room information). DO NOT include attributes that are not on the valid list. There are attributes listed by Facilities Services on Banner's SLARDEF that we do not include in the scheduling software.

If a departmental room will be used indicate the room. If unsure of the exact room at the present time, indicate "GRP TBAD".

If no room is needed, such as location based teaching, indicate "GRP OC".

Please note: classes are scheduled at the times and in the locations shown on the printout. If the class size/room size is not a good fit, the Schedule Desk will make necessary adjustments.

Change Meeting Dates

If a course meets for less than the full term, cross out the full term dates (which defaulted from the roll process) and indicate the correct dates or date range. These dates should adhere to established part of term dates as outlined on the Non-traditional Course Offerings page.


You can restrict by Department, Field of Study, Class, Level, Degree, Campus, College, and Student Attributes. To indicate INCLUDE put a +.  To indicate EXCLUDE put a –.  Course prerequisites and recommended courses cannot be added, deleted or changed at the section level. They must be changed at the catalog level with a course change proposal. However, they can be switched from "Enforced" to "Recommended" with an email request to the Catalog Coordinator. See official prerequisite policy.

To Change the Section Max or Waitlist
