About Training Workshops

These structured sessions are designed to not only give you a brief overview of the new Schedule of Classes data entry process, but also offer dedicated workshop time to actually begin entering your course information. Please be sure to bring any questions that you would like addressed, as well as your course information. We will have Registrar Office staff in attendance to work with you and help you through the process.

Please note: Our training workshop format has changed. Feel free to register for more than one workshop (based upon space availability). We now offer these four session types:

  • Overview: Get an overview of the Schedule of Classes data entry process using Argos and Banner XE. It is designed for individuals who are new to the process or need a complete refresher on the steps. Topics include Argos reports, creating a section, adding instructors, adjusting meeting times, and adding section restrictions.
  • Review: Need a quick refresher on creating a section? This workshop is for you! During this 30 minute session, users will be guided through the basic steps required to create a section. Note: This session is designed for users who have prior experience with the Schedule of Classes process.
  • Work Session: Want to work on your Schedule of Classes with no instructor lead training interruptions and Registrar's Office staff help only a step away? This work session was designed precisely for that.

  • Process for creating sections of newly added but not approved courses
    • Once the new course has been approved by the college faculty, the Registrar’s Office is permitted to enter new courses into Banner Catalog. This will enable those departments to create sections of that course to be available to students during November registration for spring 2018.
    • Sections of courses that are still pending final approval will have additional verbiage added by the department to the section text of the CRN: New Course, Pending Faculty Approval. This added text is to ensure that students are aware that the section for which they are registering is still pending final approval and may be cancelled prior to the start of class.
    • Once a course receives final University Faculty approval, this additional verbiage will be removed.
      • Fall semester Only: Courses that do not receive final approval by the last faculty meeting scheduled for the academic year will be inactivated in Banner Catalog. Any sections of said courses that exist in the fall Schedule of Classes will be removed and the department offering the course will notify all registered students in the section(s) of the cancellation.
