The Mass Change Section Numbers (SEC) page can be used to mass change student sections. Multiple sections can be added, dropped or changed for students in the selected sections.
The Mass Change Section Numbers (SEC) page can be found by filtering for the Mass Change Section Numbers page or under Scheduling Process -> Mass Change Section Numbers in the Navigation Menu.
NOTE: Caution should be used when changing section numbers. Changes to student section numbers are made directly to SEC and will change current student classes.
To change an existing section to another section number, entered the requested section number on the left side of the form. Enter the new section number on the right side of the form. This page allows for overloading a section if necessary by placing a checkmark in the overload checkbox. The Course Attendance Date will default to the current date. The date can be changed if necessary. Click the Preview Only button to see a listing of the students whose section(s) will be changed. To update the sections click the Update button.
Query can be used to limit the students whose sections need to be adjusted. The Query form can be opened by clicking the Open Query link at the bottom of the form.
In this example we are changing students with Section 45 to Section 68. There is a checkmark in place to allow overload of the section. If necessary, Section 68 will be overloaded. The Course Attendance Date is set for April 21, 2021. The student class changes will be effective on that date. Students with Section 45 will be changed to now have Section 68, this change will affect students in all grades and all genders that are currently enrolled in Section 45.
The Preview Only button will display a listing of students that will be affected by the change. Click the Update button to make the changes.
