Add/Edit Courses

Courses can be added to Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) on an individual basis, as compared to performing a bulk upload, at any time. The basic information for a course, including the course prefix, number, title, and credit hours, can also be changed as necessary.

 

Initial Steps

A Course Prefix must be created before creating a new course. If a course taught is uploaded to FAR, but the actual course has not been added to FAR, an exception will be noted while uploading the course taught. Check out our article on how to add/edit course prefixes for further guidance.

 

If you encounter an error when adding or editing courses, we have provided a FAR Error Message Glossary to better explain and clarify possible errors and how to fix them.
