  • 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
