Preparing Courses in Banner

In order for courses to be effectively updated from a Banner export, the following sections need to be clearly delineated in Banner. Ideally, each category would be indicated on a separate line at the beginning and/or end of the course description in banner.

Courses to be referenced as lookup links in the course description, requirements or pre-requisites in the catalog should be referenced with the 4 character subject, the course # and, optionally, section. Example: BIOL 2101K
