Course Management - Returned Courses  


After a course has been submitted, it may be returned by the Reviewer (Registrar's Office) or an approver at a higher level for changing or correction before it is approved. It will be returned to the Preparer's WIPQ (accessed through the CRAMS main menu by clicking Work-in-Progress Queue).

Updating Cross-Listed Courses

When cross-listed courses are returned from the Reviewer (or approver) for changing or correction, only one of the cross-listed courses will need to be updated. The following example for ETST 128/SOC 128 illustrates the process.

Ethnic Studies and Sociology Departments

  1. Go to Work-in-Progress Queue and select ETST 128.
  2. Click Comments and read the message from the Reviewer (or approver) (the message in the Comments section instructs Ethnic Studies to revise the description). If you want to copy and paste a phrase from the Reviewer comments, select the text, click Ctrl+C, close the comments, right-click to modify the appropriate field, and click Ctrl+V to paste the text.
  3. Close the Comments field.

Sociology Department

  1. Go to Work-in-Progress Queue and select SOC 128.
  2. Review the changes made by Ethnic Studies (see Change Summary).
