Renumbering an existing course involves two steps: creating a new course under the new number, and inactivating the original number.

Creating a new course under a new number:

  1. Login to Course Admin.
  2. Select the Propose New Course button.
  3. The course form will pop open. Select the green Propose New from Existing Course button.
  4. The course picker box will appear. In the Quick Add field type in the name of the original course prefix and course number. Select Add Course.
    1. Tip: use all caps when typing in the course prefix
  5. The course form will populate with all of the details currently associated with that original existing course. You must still fill out any blank red-bordered fields, including:
    1. Are you completing this form on someone else’s behalf?
    2. Effective Term
    3. Subject Code: select the applicable subject code for the new proposed course.
    4. Course Number: input the new course number
    5. Equivalent Courses: you must add the original course number as an equivalency to this new course number.
      1. Select the green ‘plus’ icon.
      2. Follow step 4 above.
    6. The following fields will need to be filled out anew, given that the available options will vary based on the new course number:
      1. Schedule Type
      2. Repeatable
      3. Default Grade Mode
  6. Once you have completed the form, scroll to the bottom. In the Additional Comments field please add a note explaining that this new course is a renumbering of an existing course (include details about the existing course in this space as well).
  7. Select Start Workflow.

Inactivating the original course:

  1. Login to Course Admin.
  2. Search for the course.
  3. Select the course from the results menu.
  4. Select the red Deactivate button.
  5. The Deactivate form will show. Complete the required fields and then select Start Workflow.
