SIS/Building Your Schedule of Classes - Deleting vs. Canceling Sections

logo

This document outlines the differences between deleting and canceling a class section.

Class sections that will not be offered for a term must be removed from the Schedule of Classes, and must either be canceled or deleted depending on the circumstances.


Deleting sections vs canceling sections and appropriate use cases

Delete a class section when: 

Schedule of Classes has not been released. A class section should only be deleted if the Schedule of Classes for that term has not been released yet in Course Search & Enroll.

Cancel a class section when: 

Schedule of Classes has been released. Canceling a section after Schedule of Classes for that term has been released and appears in Course Search & Enroll will ensure students receive correct information in the enrollment system.

Never delete a section after the Schedule of Classes has been released; doing so will remove the class number, resulting in errors for enrollment and student confusion.

Important: You will have to work with Curricular Services to cancel a section with enrollment.
