SSASECT - Changing a Section

Note: The information on this page applies to INB Banner, version 8. The content is no longer updated, but may still be useful as a general reference for later versions of Banner.

Use the Schedule form (SSASECT), once a course section has a Course Reference Number (CRN), to edit the section. Once the schedule book has gone to print you can modify a section when making instructor, maximum enrollment, or building/room changes for the current campus, as long as students are properly notified of the change. 

Note: If the campus, meeting date, or meeting time changes for a section, you will need to cancel the section. See SSASECT - Canceling a Section  for more information. Delete a section only if the schedule book has not gone to print. See SSASECT - Deleting a Section  for more information.

Follow these directions to change a section in SSASECT:

  1. From the Banner Main menu, type the form name in the Go To... box press the [Enter] key on the keyboard.
    Go To...
  2. The form is displayed. Type the term code in the Term field.
  3. Type the CRN you want to work with in the CRN field. 
    Note: To search for a term code, click the Term field pull-down arrow. A list of term codes are displayed. Locate and double-click the code to return to the form and display it in the Term field. See Glossary of Banner Codes and Fields  for more information about term codes.
    Note: To search for a CRN, click CRN field pull-down arrow and see SSASECQ - Searching for Course Sections  for more information.
  4. Click the Next Block button on the toolbar.
    Next Block Button
  5. The Section Details block is populated. Click the tab you want to work with.
    Note: Once the schedule book has gone to print, using Options on the menu bar, you can navigate to various blocks and modify the following:

        - Section Enrollment Info : The maximum enrollment number
        - Schedule Meeting Times  : The building codes and room numbers for the current campus
        - Assigning an Instructor to a Section  : The Instructor ID and name.

    Important: Be sure to properly notify registered students of any changes.
