SIS - Updating Combined Sections
Combined sections are courses that are either cross-listed or a meets-with. This documents the requirements needed for a section to be classified as such and how to update the enrollment capacity on a combined section.

The combined Enrollment Capacity term rolls from the previous like semester.
The Enrollment Capacity set on the Combined Section Detail page is what the Enrollment System uses for the section’s enrollment capacity.
