Searching for Classes in the Class Schedule


The following procedure explains how to search for classes in the Class Schedule.

1. From UM-Dearborn Connect, select the Class Schedule link from the menu.

2. The first Class Schedule Search page is displayed. Choose a term from the Search by Term pull-down list. Click the Submit button.

3. The second Class Schedule Search page is displayed. On this page choose from a variety of course characteristics to narrow your search. At a minimum, at least one selection must be made from the Subject pull-down list.

  • In fields with multiple values, more than one value can be selected by using the Shift key (to select consecutive values) and/or Ctrl Key (to select non-consecutive values).
  • In fields where you are permitted to enter values, you may use the wildcard character (%). For example, a search for 2% in the course number field will retrieve all course numbers beginning with '2' within the subject you have chosen. Or, a search for %introduction% in the title field will retrieve all courses with the word 'introduction' in the title within the subject you have chosen.

Click the Class Search button.

4. The Class Schedule Listing page displays the courses and related information found using the search criteria you entered on the Class Schedule Search page. This page includes general information about the course, section comments, course scheduled meeting time(s), and assigned instructor.
