Step-by-Step Instructions

Tag All Master Courses with a Credit Type

Credit types can be whatever you want them to be...they can be a numeric value (e.g. 100034), a code (e.g. eng verif), or a full word/set of words (English Verified). Basically you will tag all of your master courses with a credit type and then you will go into your graduation set requirements and list the credit types of courses that meet the requirement.

For this reason, you may want to think about your naming convention for credit types so that its intuitive to match requirements to credit types and to tag new Master Courses with an appropriate credit type in the future. 

  1. Place your mouse over (i.e. hover over) the item called "Courses" in the left green vertical navigation menu.

  2. In the sub-menu select View Master Catalog.

  3. Click a master course to open its details. 

  4. Click the Edit link. 

  5. Enter a credit type. Again, this is whatever code/word/number you came up with for this procedure--try to keep it consistent.

  6. Click the save button.
