Course Requests Tally

This report will total the number of requests for each course, by Course Type. It will also divide the total by the maximum class size to give an estimated number of sections required. This figure is given as a preliminary figure.

The same calculation is done as a precursor of the Course Master Build function.

It is important to clear up any mistakes in the students’ course requests before trying to build a final master schedule or schedule students. In our experience, typical errors that occur are students requesting wrong courses, course number 113 instead of 133, resulting in Calculus 12 instead or English 10, duplicate course request, too many course requests, too few requests. Any of these errors will result in the student being scheduled wrongly, but it might also tip the balance of the master schedule and upset several student schedules. Time spent clearing up course request errors is a good investment.
