Student Information System

Enrollment in history and LAC.

Category of Issue: Enrollment

Issue name: Enrollment in history and LAC.

Issue resolution status: Completed

Due date: Already in place.

 

Issue description:

Classes in History were confused with LAC classes, so students looking for Non-Western Civ-Africa were enrolled in upper division Modern African History. Organization and explanations on system inadequate for students to make choices or find appropriate classes.

 

Planned solution:

Students seeking courses that meet LAC requirements can search by that criterion. Students seeking courses that meet their specific degree requirements can search by that criterion. We believe that this is about effective use of the tools of the system, rather than an inherent issue with how the system works. We will include this in training/communication efforts.

In addition the subject descriptions were changed to provide for better sourting of the history subjects:

Europe Since ca. 1700

Europe to ca. 1700

Historical Study/Thematic/Grad

Non-Western History

United States History

to:

History - Europe since ca. 1700

History - Europe to ca. 1700

History - Thematic/Grad

History - Non-Western

History - United States
