NEW COURSELEAF SECTION SCHEDULER

The Office of the Registrar will be implementing CourseLeaf Section Scheduler (CLSS), a new scheduling software which will replace the previously paper-based class scheduling process. The new software will place many tools in the hands of college and department administrators, which will help in the goal of creating optimal class schedules for our students.

CLSS goes live on July 12 and the upcoming Spring 2018 Class Schedule will be created using this new technology.
