Resolution

  1. Determine your primary course
    • For example, if you have a section A and a section B, select one to be the primary course
    • If either course has content created, always select that course to be the primary course, or content will be lost
  2. Open your selected primary course
  3. Select Settings
  4. Click on the Course Details tab
  5. Look for the SIS ID number
  6. Copy this number
  7. Close the primary course
  8. Open the course you wish to cross-list with your primary course
  9. Select Settings
  10. Click on the Sections tab
  11. Find the hyperlink (underlined course number) and click it
  12. On the right side of the screen, you will see Cross-List this Section
  13. Select this button
  14. Paste the SIS ID into the second text field and press Enter
  15. After the course you are cross-listing appears in the bottom-left corner of the message box, select Cross-List this Section
    • If the course information does not appear, ensure that there are no additional spaces, tabs, or characters before or after the SIS ID code
  16. Repeat steps 11 though 15 with all needed sections, using the same SIS ID number to cross sections between courses
