  • Add content to the primary course prior to cross-listing — example if you are cross-listing sections A, B, and C add your content to section A, then cross-list sections B and C into A
  • When courses are de-cross-listed, the roster will move into the original shell; however the content will appear only in the primary course
  • Faculty cannot de-cross-list courses


  1. Submit a ticket and provide the following information:
    • Name of your course
    • Section you want to de-cross-list 
    • Your contact information
      • Please note that courses with grades and student work will not be de-cross-listed as the student work will be lost as well as the grades
