The Catalog is a historical record of all the courses that SPU has offered and is currently offering is the foundation of the Banner Student System is the base on which we build the Time Schedule, which allows us to register and grade students defines the rules for all courses is our contract with students for curriculum rules

Test Your Knowledge: Which of these changes requires a catalog course form?
Making Changes to Equivalent Courses? Please Note! Example: If a change is made to PSY 2360 by the Psychology department, the change will not be automatically applied to SOC 2360. It is up to the individual department to communicate this change with each other, as well as SAS.
Courses Used By Other Departments If another department is using your course in their program, be sure to notify them if you change the number or discontinue the course. Ideally this needs to be communicated before the 1st round is due so that they can update their Catalog copy.

Request from SAS When building Time Schedule, especially for graduate programs, please do not have classes start and end at the precise time: 1:00-5:30 and 5:30-7:30. It will make it impossible for our scheduling software to schedule rooms effectively. Be creative – 1:00 – 5:20, or something. Thank you!
