Note:  If your course is usually cross-listed in Banner to create a single course for multiple CRN’s, please be sure to check with your department’s Banner Class schedule person to ensure that the courses are indeed cross-listed in BANNER before beginning the activation steps outlined below.  Note:  You may not see all the “child” sections of your crosslisted course when activating, if you do not see them, the department that the course belongs to has not yet added you as the instructor of record to that course.

Please note, if your course is copying from a “mandatory” course template and is not currently available to you, please inquire with the course coordinator within the department that is the master designer for the course about the availability of your course section.
