Course Request Section Packets can be created to assign a specific set of sections to a student's Class Schedule. This page is designed to store packets where specific sections can be added to the packet. When a packet is added to a student’s schedule, the student will be enrolled in all courses in the packet. Course Request Section Packets can be created for any logical group of courses. A common example is the set of required courses for a specific grade level.
Navigate to Scheduling Process > Configurations > Course Request Section Packets.
