Class Search

The best place initially to search for classes is in the Online Catalog 2017-2018. You should have a good idea of what classes you are interested in before you log in to PeopleSoft to enter your Shopping Cart Courses.

In PeopleSoft you can search for classes

  • from the search for classes button on the Student Center, or
  • from the Search tab on the Academic Planning/Enrollment Shopping Cart pages, plan tabs, or
  • from the Class Search link under the Class Search/Browse Catalog submenu, or
  • during the first step of adding a class to your Shopping Cart , shopping cart .
