Submit Course Requests

The Course Request feature is an Edline add-on feature. Your district or school must enable course requests for this feature to be available.

If your school has the Edline course request feature enabled, students will be able to request courses for future terms through Edline. The Course Request feature will only be available to specific users based on their permission:

  • Students can use the Course Request feature to select next semester’s classes.
  • Parents will not be able to use the Course Request feature to select classes, but can view the list of courses requested by their children and the school administrators.

How to Add a Course to My Request List

If your school allows it, students can submit requests for specific courses for the next term (semester or year). This feature is only available to schools that have an online course request system. Your school decides when it will take online course request submissions. Contact your school directly to find out the exact days you will be allowed to submit online course requests through Edline.

  1. From the My Edline menu, under My Content select Course Requests.

  2. Select the course you want from the Full Course Catalog area by completing the following steps:
    • If the Jump to field is available, select a class category. For example, select Math to search for an Algebra class. This field may not be available based on your school.
    • Click the name of the course, and then click Add Course Request.

    To search for a class by name or subject, type the name in the box and click Find Next.

  3. Select a course that was recommended to you from the School Recommendations area by completing the following steps:
    • Click the name of the course, and then click Add Course Request.
  4. When you are finished selecting courses, click Submit.

How to View the Description of a Course

Students choosing course requests will be able to view the descriptions of the courses available at the school. The description will be available only if your school added a description for the courses.

  1. From the My Edline menu, under My Content select Course Requests.
  2. To learn more about a course, select the name of the course from the Full Course Catalog or Request Courses area.
  3. Click View Course Description for the Course Description dialog.
  4. Click Close when finished.

You can also click Print for a printed copy of the description.

How to Remove a Course from My Request List

Students may be able to remove courses from the request list, if your school’s online submissions are still available and your school allows you to drop courses. Contact your school directly to find out the exact days you will be allowed to submit online course requests through Edline.

  1. From the My Edline menu, under My Content, select Course Requests.
  2. Select the course you want to remove from the Requested Courses area.
  3. To remove the course, click Drop Course Request.
  4. When you are finished managing the courses, click Submit.
