Updating the Notes Page

Tips on Notes Usage
   Use notes to specify essential enrollment information for students; i.e., dates of modular
    courses, crosslisted members, course fees, explanation of variable credits, optional components,
    mid-term evening exams, etc.
   If information pertains to several of your departmental offerings, consider placing it in Global
    Notes instead of footnotes.
   Create a document listing your standard footnotes; therefore, you can create consistent notes
    within your department by copying the footnotes from your document into ISIS Notes.
   Each department is allowed 25 unique notes in the PDF Timetable.
    There is no limit to the number of notes that a section may display in Class Search.
   Footnote letters (A, B, C, etc.) will be assigned to each unique class note through the class
    schedule print program. The text of the note will appear at the bottom of the PDF Timetable
    page.
Tip: See the Appendix for examples of footnote print locations in the PDF Timetable.

Adjust Class Associations
The Adjust Class Associations component provides information regarding enrollment packages,
credits, components, requisites, and honors. What distinguishes this component from others is it
provides information by association instead of by class section or course.
Class Associations & Class Components do NOT term roll. When a new term is created, Class
Associations and Class Components default to the catalog level values.
Class Associations allow you to:
 Change specific credits/units
 View grading basis
 View graded component
 Change requirement designation (Honors)
 View class components of each association
 View optional components
 View final exam flag

Class Associations Special Notes

Class Associations
Associations are groups of sections that comprise an enrollment package within a course. Each
class association can have different requisites, honors controls, and credits (i.e., one section for
Honors only or Freshmen only).

Requirement Designation
Honors sections are defined using the Requirement Designation.

Sample Audit Report for Topics
The audit report for topics pulls all active courses that have offered a topic in the last nine terms. The report looks like this:




Tips on Interpreting this Audit:
   Look at the Topic_Title to see which course Ctlg number it is associated with and notice the last term this topic was offered as well as
    what terms this topic was actually taught within the nine most recently created terms.
   Topic title approved courses may have multiple topic sections per course offered during the same term.
   If an existing topic needs to be assigned to your course section(s), attach it here:
    >Curriculum Management >Schedule of Classes >Maintain Schedule of Classes, |Basic Data| tab.
   If a new topic title needs to be created for a course, create it here: >Curriculum Management >Schedule of Classes >Add Course Topics.


Topic_Title          Displays the 30 character description that appears on a student‟s transcript.
LastOffTerm          Displays the term this topic was last offered.
Term numbers         Displays the nine most recently created term numbers.

Sample Audit Report for Course Typically Offered Codes
The Audit Report for Course Typically Offered Codes pulls all active courses and looks like this:




Tips on Interpreting this Audit:
Look at the TypOffCd for a course and compare it to when the course was actually taught within the last 9 terms.
If the TypOffCd needs to be edited, change coding in ISIS here: >Curriculum Management >Course Catalog >Course Catalog Maintenance.
TypOffCd            Displays the semester(s) the course is typically offered. (FL = Fall, SP = Spring, SU = Summer, Occasional = infrequently)
                    The typically offered semester(s) can be seen in the Course Guide and on the Course Catalog Offerings page.
                    This coding can be changed on the Course Catalog Maintenance page.
LastOffTerm         Displays the term this course was last offered. Notice 20th century terms are missing the leading zero (e.g. 762 = 0762).
                    The Last Offered Term will display in the Course Guide.
Term#s              Displays the nine most recently created term numbers.
                    If a „Y‟ displays in the Term column, it means this course was offered that particular term.
                    If the Term column is blank, it means the course was not offered that particular term.

Independent Study Sections Tips
    Each Independent Study instructor is assigned to a specific section with a separate class
     number.
    Setup these courses with Consent as needed.
    General course information for Independent Studies courses will appear in the PDF Timetable,
     but individual sections will not. Individual class numbers are available in Class Search.

Updating an Independent Study Section
When creating your class schedule, set up only those sections which you are reasonably certain will
have enrollment. New sections may be added as needed; any sections that do not have enrollment
will be cancelled after the beginning of the term (approximately week 5 for Fall and Spring and
week 11 for Summer).

Cancel or Delete a Section
When do I Cancel versus Delete a section?
Delete If       Schedule of Classes HAS NOT been finalized.
                A class section should only be deleted if the Schedule of Classes has not been
                finalized.
Cancel If       Schedule of Classes HAS been finalized.
                Canceling a section after Schedule of Classes has been finalized will ensure
                students receive correct information on the web enrollment system. Never delete a
                section after the Schedule of Classes has been finalized; doing so will remove the
                class number, resulting in errors for web enrollment and student confusion.
                Important:
                Print a class roster before canceling a section, and notify all enrolled students of the
                cancel. All enrolled students will be dropped from a section when it is cancelled.

Understanding Auto Enroll, Associations and Honors in Class Setup

Auto Enroll
Auto enroll allows classes to be „linked‟ together to form an Enrollment Package. The student will
enter a single class number for the „enrollment class‟ and will automatically be enrolled in any
required related classes such as a lecture or seminar.
The enrollment system will be most efficient if auto enroll is setup. When a course is not set up to
auto enroll, students requesting the enrollment class will be prompted to enter the class number for
other required component(s). This lengthens the student‟s enrollment time.



Class Associations
Class Associations allow the enrollment system to identify unique enrollment packages.
It is important to be aware of Class Associations every time a section is added and/or a course
structure is changed. Once enrollment has occurred in a section, its Class Association
CANNOT be updated.
Class Association 9999 classes are shared among other class associations of the course.
A Class Association 9999:
 Is a wild card association
 Cannot have honors attached
 Cannot be an enrollment class
 Cannot be a graded component



Honors in Class Associations
If the Honors component is optional, then the entire enrollment package will need to be available
for optional Honors (HOP or HIA), as seen on Class Associations – Class Components page, and a
Class Note is required to notify students who should take the course for Honors and what
components are required for Honors. Departments will need to audit their class list to see who has
enrolled for Honors.

 Honors (HOP or HIA), as seen on Class Associations – Class Components page. Use a Class Note
 to advise students who should take the course for Honors and what components are required for
 Honors. Departments will need to audit their class list to see who has enrolled for Honors.

Resectioning
Departments may use the Resection feature if they offer multiple sections of the same course
that meet at the same time/day pattern ONLY. This allows ease of enrollment for the student
when enrolling for a course that offers multiple sections when the first section attempted to enroll
in is closed. Once the first section closes, students are automatically enrolled into the resectioned
section and are given this information through web enrollment as a „Message‟.
CAUTION: The risk of resectioning is that by allowing a resection, a student may not get the
         instructor that they wanted.
Notes:         Prior to „resectioning‟, departments need to make sure that they are only resectioning
               students into another section that has the same time/day pattern as the original
               section.
               Resection must be a number greater than the section this it is placed upon.
Path:           >Curriculum Management >Schedule of Classes >Update Sections of a Class -
                |Class Status| page
Example:
   Let‟s say Sections 002 and 007 are both offered at 9:55 MW.
   Once Section 002 closes, the department would like any student attempting to enroll in section
    002 to be „resectioned‟ into Section 007.
   On the Update Sections of a Class, Class Status page, you would put „007‟ in the Resection
    field in the „002‟ section row.
   Therefore, when a student attempts to enroll in Section 002, instead of getting an error of „Class
    is Full‟, they would be resectioned into Section 007 (which is open) and given a „Message‟
    notifying them of this section change.
   If Section 007 also closes, the student would then receive the „Class is Full‟ error message.
   The same scenario would be true for section 005 that is being resectioned into 008.

Expert Entry
As a curricular representative, expert entry has been authorized for your use. Five curricular update
components/pages have been customized to allow expert entry if the user is authorized for expert
data entry. The five components, all through >Curriculum Management >Schedule of Classes are:
1) Maintain Schedule of Classes 2) Schedule New Course 3) Schedule Class Meetings, 4) Update
Sections of a Class, and 5)Adjust Class Associations.
Expert entry allows you to enter curricular data in ISIS without having the ISIS system edit the data
as it is entered. In other words, editing of data is NOT interactive; it is deferred until you click
[Save] or [Refresh].
Use of Expert Entry has some distinct advantages in ISIS: it stops the „hiccups‟ because data is not
edited as you enter it, making it easier and quicker to tab from field to field. It also reduces errors
since your cursor will go where you direct it instead of stopping at the previous field to edit data
continually.

How do I know if I have Expert Entry?
You can verify that you have Expert Entry by looking at the lower left portion of the ISIS pages for
the four components mentioned above. You will see a check box followed by the words Expert
Entry:                  = Available but Off |                   = Available and On

Do I need to do anything to use Expert Entry?
Yes. The ISIS default for Expert Entry is set to no (not checked). You either have to check the
Expert Entry box each time you wish to enter data in a deferred (non-edited) mode or change your
default from no (not checked) to yes (always checked on). Curricular Services recommends the
latter – change your default to have Expert Entry always on. Changing the default only needs to be
done once. The Expert Entry box will then always be checked on whenever you access any pages in
the four components mentioned above. Note: You can always uncheck the Expert Entry box on a
specific ISIS page whenever you prefer not to use it, such as when you are entering section
cancellations in ISIS (see Special Processing Notes).

How do I change my Expert Entry default?
Note: This procedure only needs to be done one time.
1. From your Main Menu, go to >My Personalizations.
2. Select the Navigation Personalizations [Personalize Option] button.
3. Find „Default Expert Entry On‟ and select „Yes‟ in the Override Value field.
   Note: Clear this field if you later want to turn the expert entry default setting to No.
4. Click „OK‟.
5. Click „Return‟ on the Save Confirm page.

Expert Entry Special Processing Notes
Please read the following carefully and keep for your ongoing reference.
 If you have not set the Expert Entry default to Yes, you will need to check the Expert Entry box
  each time you wish to use it. Conversely, if you have set the Expert Entry default to „Yes‟, you
  can always opt to turn it off on a particular page. Checking Expert Entry on or off will affect
  that component only and only for the period of time that you are in that component.
 If Expert Entry is checked on, you will also get an additional button called [Refresh] on the
  same line as the [Save] button (lower part of the page). The [Refresh] button does NOT Save
  your data entry. It simply refreshes the page editing and translating any values you have
  entered. Clicking [Refresh] will also return any error messages as a result of telling the ISIS
  system that you want it to edit your page(s). Although not essential, Curricular Services
  suggests that you click [Refresh] on pages where you have entered codes that need translated
  values verified. This is particularly advisable for codes such as Facility ID, Meeting Pattern,
  and Instructor Empl ID.
  Tips: Click [Refresh] or Press [Alt]+[0] on a PC or Press [Apple]+[Option/Alt]+[0] on a Mac.
 Canceling a Section: If you have Expert Entry checked on and you need to cancel a section,
  additional steps will be necessary. To cancel a section with Expert Entry on:
    1.      Check the box just before „Cancel if Student Enrolled‟.
    2.      Click [Save].
    3.      Change Class Status to „Cancelled Section‟.
    4.      Click [Refresh].
            Note: The [Cancel Class] button should now be active.
                   Do not click [Save] as you will get an error.
    5.      Click [Cancel Class] to complete your cancellation.
    Tip:    To make your life easier when canceling sections, it is recommended that you uncheck
            the Expert Entry box BEFORE canceling sections.


We believe you will find Expert Entry very useful when entering ISIS data on the Schedule of
Classes, Schedule New Course, Schedule Class Meetings, and Update Sections of a Class
components.

Curricular Planning Toolkit
This website was built with new curricular representatives and curricular coordinators in mind. It is
a FABULOUS collection of resources to make ALL the pieces of building your Schedule of
Classes easy to access.
Every department on campus has a unique approach to curriculum development. However, this
website identifies the fundamental planning elements shared by everyone. In particular, the website
separates these elements into four simple pieces that together form the Schedule of Classes: who
teaches, what classes do they teach, when are the classes to be offered and where will the classes be
taught.

The typesetting program that produces the PDF Timetable will pull all notes for a department and build a file of notes. As this file is built, the typesetting program will 1) assign a footnote letter to each unique occurrence of a note
and 2) print the footnote letter and note text at the bottom of the PDF timetable page, and 3) print the letter it assigned on the course or section based on the location that was specified in the Print Location field in ISIS.
