SIS/Building Your Schedule of Classes - Global Notes


Learn what Global Notes are used for and how to update them.

What are Global Notes?

Global Notes are meant to display information relevant to all of a subject's course offerings. Global Notes will display in Course Search & Enroll under the heading Subject Notes for each course in your subject.

Global Notes often include information such as the URL of a department website, an email address students should use for enrollment permission requests, or additional contact information. This is NOT a place for information about specific classes; that should be entered in Maintain Schedule of Classes on the Notes tab. To provide Curricular Representatives a starting point that is as current as possible, Global Notes are rolled forward from the most recently published terms as follows: Fall notes are rolled from Spring, Spring notes are rolled from Fall, and Summer notes are rolled from Fall. 

How to update Global Notes

From Home, select: Curric & Enroll Rep WorkCenter, Global Notes Table. The Find page will display.
