View Catalog or Course Description

The super user can view the course descriptions from the Manage Course Requests page, after a catalog has been uploaded to the Edline website. School staff configured as course requesters or course recommenders will also be able to view the course descriptions while editing a student’s course request on the Course Request page. This feature will allow you to double-check the descriptions of the classes available to students. Descriptions are only available if your school has posted course descriptions with the catalog.

The Course Request feature is an Edline add-on feature. Your district or school’s IT representative will need to contact Edline Support to see if adding this feature is possible with your Student Information System (SIS).
