Help get the right students in the right classes
When students search for classes during registration, they’ll see the general course description from the course catalog. To help them make informed choices, you can provide a more detailed description for your class. Faculty and certain administrative users have the ability to add or edit class descriptions.
You can update and save a class description without displaying the description to students. When your description is complete and you’re ready for students to see it, check the “Display class description” checkbox and save the description. This will replace the general course description with your more detailed class description.
