Can I look at CMC class offerings without a User Name and ID?
Yes. You do not need a User Name or Password to view the classes offered at CMC. Just use this "Search For Classes " link to access this screen.
See the tutorial that follows for more information on using the Search for Sections function.
Using the "Search for Sections" Screen
Instructions in Word or PDF
Use "Search for Sections" link to view specific classes offered at CMC. Accessing class information through this link DOES NOT REQUIRE A USER NAME AND PASSWORD. However, you will not be able to register through this link. To register, use the "Register for Sections" link.
This capability is similar to looking at a printed bulletin but allows you to do more things. You can search for a specific type of class, e.g. Intro to Business, no matter where it is being offered or use other criteria such as "Course Title Keywords" if you can't recall the exact "Subject" or "Course Number."
You may fill out as many or as few search criteria as you need to narrow the search to the list of courses you are interested in. For example, if you are interested in finding out what sections are available for Chemistry 120 as well as what Physics courses are being offered at the 200 level, you would:
Select the term for which you are interested using the Term drop-down menu (you must select a term or a date range).
Select "Chemistry" using the Subject drop-down menu on the first selection line.
Select "First Yr" using the Course Levels drop-down menu on the first selection line.
Enter "120" for the Course Number on the first selection line.
Select "Physics" using the Subject drop-down menu on the second selection line.
Select "Second Yr" using the Course Levels drop-down menu on the second selection line.
After selecting the "Submit" button, all available sections of Chemistry 120 and all 200 level Physics courses would be displayed for the selected term.
If you enter a word such as "Accounting" in the search field called "Course Title Keyword(s), the system displays all courses containing the word "Accounting."
The narrower the search, the faster the results will be retrieved.
If you knew the exact section number, you would enter that in addition to the subject and course number field, e.g. Course Number would be 120 LV01 for Chemistry 120 LV01.
You may use a selection from the drop-down menus by Locations and Academic Level to further refine your search or select the blank part of that drop-down menu to access all Locations/Academic Levels.
When using the instructor's name for your selection, only enter his/her last name.
After accessing the Students Menu, select "Search for Sections" or skip to Step 2 by going directly to the "Search for Sections" page.
Here are a few tips to use this tool effectively:
Enter a term or start and end date but not both.
Enter information under these fields – "Subject," "Course Levels", "Course Number" and "Section" – to limit your search. If you want to do a more generic search using this area, use less search criteria, e.g. select "Business" only. Use the "blank" in the Subjects and Course Levels drill-down menus if you do not want to limit the search using these criteria.
If you have a preferred meeting time or day of the week, you can use the meeting times area to limit your search.
Keywords are useful for finding a specific class when the subject is unknown, e.g. "nutrition" could be CUA, HSC or HWE.
Select a location only if you want to limit your search to a specific CMC site.
If you have a favorite instructor, use the "Instructor's Last Name" to see what classes they are offering.
We've provided screenshots of what you'll see when accessing the drop-down menus.
REMEMBER, selecting the BLANK on this list tells the system that you DO NOT WANT TO APPLY ANY CRITERIA FOR THIS FIELD.
Term drill-down menu
Subject drill-down menu
Location drill-down menu. Select the "BLANK" field in this drill-down menu to view classes based on the other criteria selected for all CMC locations.
