Frequency of Offering and Special Support Requirements

(page 6 of course request)

Frequency of Offering – Instructions

Many units presently prepare documents that inform students about when certain courses will be offered, so that students are able to plan out their programs of study term by term or yearly. Units may indicate projected terms of offering here if it is helpful for them to collect this information within the course request system. Presently, this information WILL NOT print in any catalogs published centrally by the University.

For each semester that the course will be offered:

  • Click on the arrow at the end of the first box to bring up the menu. Select the desired phrase and click again.

  • If there are special notes about the course offering during that semester, enter this in the second box.

  • If the course will be offered in various terms with no specific pattern of offering, click on the box for “Variable terms of offering.” You may then describe the variable terms of offering if you wish.


Frequency of Offering – Examples

Example:
The course will be offered fall every year, but only off campus; it will be offered spring of odd years and summer of every year to all on-campus students. Summer offering is only on-line.
