Harvard FAS Registrar's Office
Greetings Catalog Coordinators,

This newsletter includes important updates pertaining to the Course Catalog and Schedule of Classes. Therefore, please read this message in its entirety and email with questions or concerns. 

Notification to Faculty
The Registrar’s Office will email faculty on January 7th with a reminder to review their spring courses in the my.harvard course search.
The deadline to make changes to the course catalog is Jan.15th. After Jan. 15th, the only changes permitted will be to the Schedule of Classes:
Use the Checklist for Coordinators as a guide to conduct a final review of your spring courses.
FAS Curriculum Workcenter Audits

The Workcenter Audits require your immediate attention, especially the following:
Non-Compliant Meeting Times

There are still many spring classes with non-compliant times. If your class is meeting at a different campus, it is critical that you update the Campus and Location fields in the Course Catalog Offerings tab.
The location field defaults in the Catalog, but is controlled each term by Schedule of Classes so you must change it in both locations, otherwise, we will assume that your meeting time is not compliant.
  1. Catalog: change the campus and location
  2. Schedule of Classes: adjust the location
No Head instructor Assigned

Scheduled classes missing a head instructor are especially problematic for courses requiring instructor consent.

For more information about instructor roles and grade permissions, please visit our website.
Please make sure all of your courses have a Head Instructor with Post level grading access.
Coordinators should run all audits in the FAS Curriculum Workcenter for the upcoming spring term and make course corrections as needed.
