How do I search for classes in the Roster?
For a complete listing of all classes being offered in a subject area, click on the subject area link. For a specific course, type in the subject abbreviation and 4-digit catalog number or the course title in the search box. Typing in keywords will return all classes with that word in the title, but it will most likely not be a complete listing. For example, if you type in Anthropology, it will return all classes with Anthroplogy in the title, but not the complete listing of all classes in the subject of Anthropology.

What do I need from the Roster to enroll in a class in the Student Center?
You need the 4 or 5-digit Class Number which replaced the old 6-digit Course ID (CID) for all the classes (lectures, discussion sections, labs, etc.) you want to take, this is the fastest way to enter classes once you start enrolling. You can find this number right before the specific lecture, lab or discussion for the course.

How current is the information in the roster?
The roster is updated daily – this includes additions, subtractions and modifications to classes. The most up-to-date source of information on classes is found in the Student Center or Faculty Center.

Is there a roster data file available?
Yes. XML files are available for the subject listing and each subject, e.g. ENGL.
