Always include section numbers and semesters on course copy request forms, please do not include CRNs. Please check to ensure that the section numbers and semesters are correct for both the source course and the destination course. This will help the course copy process work smoothly and quickly.
Please have the whole course ready to be copied before submitting a course copy request form.
If the content you intend to copy comes from another instructor’s course, please obtain their permission first and indicate this on the course copy form.
Please remember that you must submit a course copy request form for your content to be copied each semester. It is not done automatically.
Please avoid requesting multiple course copies on the same form. This may require you to submit multiple request forms, but it will make the copying process much smoother.
