Spring 2020 Course Creation

Therefore, if you check multiple sections in the Course Creation Tool, a popup window will display to remind you to check if these sections are eligible to combine. If you are sure the section combination is valid, you can click on the “Confirm” button to proceed. Otherwise, should you have any uncertainties, please make sure to contact the Scheduling Office (schedoffice@udel.edu) first.
