  9. Check the checkboxes all of the courses that belong in the course group (note that only courses from your Master Catalog will appear...if the course is missing, add it to the master catalog). Include courses that, if successfully completed, meet a requirement in your graduation set

  10. Click the Save button at the bottom of the window. 

  11. Repeat until you have a course group for each of the requirements in you graduation set.

Note: If you have more than one graduation set defined in the system, you will be able to reuse course groups across the graduation sets, but there can only be one course group to a requirement in a graduation set.
