3 Texas Christian University Background on TCU: Fall 2013 enrollment: 9,925 (Undergrad & grad) Nine colleges 56 departments offering classes in 106 subjects Just over 3900 class sections created this spring

4 Texas Christian University TCU is a PeopleSoft school, and has been since May Prior to PeopleSoft, we printed five (5) schedules each year: prior to advance registration (fall & spring), at the start of the semester (fall & spring), and an Orientation fall edition in June. Since the printed schedule was out of date by the time it arrived on campus, our IT folks developed Class Search to provide up-to-date class information to the campus.

5 Texas Christian University Class Search was a ‘hit’ with students and instructors, and so, during the year when we implemented PeopleSoft, we stopped printing any schedule books, and everyone relied on Class Search. After implementation, since the campus was used to using Class Search, we never printed a Schedule of Classes again. We substituted Class Search as the lookup option within PeopleSoft.

19 Class Search Setup Enrollment numbers update dynamically. New classes or day/time/instructor changes requires a ‘refresh.’ I can run a job to refresh Class Search at any time. Mostly, the refresh is setup on the process scheduler, set to run at specific times of the day. I control all of the values in the search boxes. I do not have to involve our IT department.

20 Purple Schedule Builder We added the Purple Schedule Builder during the summer 2013, with a soft roll-out. We didn’t tell students it was there. We wanted our entering freshmen to develop schedule-building skills during orientation. Our current students had no trouble finding it.

50 Choosing Classes: From Planner There are several ways to add courses to your shopping cart. Adding courses directly from your planner is a great way to make sure you’re staying on track!

51 NC State’s Enrollment Wizard When you search for classes, you have several filter options to help make the process more efficient. You can use these filters when choosing classes from your planner, your required courses, or class search. o Use the checkboxes to expand or limit your options. o Career: Restrict your results to Graduate, Undergraduate, or Ag Institute courses only. o Location: Restrict results by location of the classes. o GEP List: Restrict results by GEP requirements. See only those courses that fulfill a particular GEP requirement. Big Time Saver for Students—no more “plan B, or plan C”
