The Event Planning sub-tab of Student Administration provides access to functions related to course schedule construction and maintenance.

Event Planning - Create, change, and cancel course sections for upcoming semesters during the approved scheduling period.  The event planning application has a Simple tab for creating most course sections, and an Advanced tab for special sections (irregularly scheduled, lecture/lab combinations, hybrid sections, linked events, and shared events).  Review the overview documentation for a comprehensive look at the process, or use the more specific instructional documents and simulations for assistance with particular aspects of event planning.
