Add/Edit: Courses

The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to configure the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.

Courses can be added to 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.

If a course taught is uploaded to FACULTY180, but the actual course has not been added to FACULTY180, an exception will be noted while uploading the course taught. See Activity Input: Initiate Faculty Input Process for more information.

Please note: If, for any reason 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.
