This page shows how to start changing a course or numbered topic using the online Request for Change in Course Inventory system. Key terms link to a glossary, which explains concepts more fully.

See the glossary for details about our deadlines, using *NRCRIN, or for information not specific to changing a course or numbered topic.

Here are the steps for changing a course or numbered topic.

Step 1

Choose an effective date.

  • Most statements on a course or numbered topic can be changed for any semester.
  • Some kinds of changes can only be made for a fall semester. These are changes to a course title, to the contact hours, and to the value in semester hours. The system will not let you make these kinds of changes if you select spring or summer. It will allow you to make other changes.

Step 2

Enter a field of study and a course number.

  • Field of study. Field of study abbreviations contain three characters. If your field contains only two letters, you may have to enter a blank space to indicate the third character.
    To enter C S computer sciences, type C space S.
  • You can only add courses in fields for which you are authorized. Authorizations are usually based on your academic unit. For example,
    If you work in the Department of Mathematics, you are authorized to submit forms in three fields of study: ACF actuarial foundations, MST mathematical statistics, and M mathematics.
  • Course number. Type the course number in the box next to the field of study. If the course has multiple values, you only need to enter one value in order for the system to identify the course. For example,
    If your course is offered as 327, 427, and 627, you only need to enter one of these values.

When you've entered all your information on the Start page, press the Save and continue button. If the course you are changing is a nontopics course, this takes you to the Summary page. If the course you are changing is a topics course, you will get another screen that looks like this:

 

 

 

From this page, you must select either the base course or one of its numbered topics. You can select only one button at a time. To change more than one topic, or to change the base course and a topic, you must submit separate requests. Note that if the course has more topics than can display on one page, you must press show more topics to see the rest of the list.

When you press continue, you will be taken to the summary page.
