2. In the top left corner of the screen displays the number of requests and alternates made by the student or administrative staff. The number of credits and units are also listed; in this instance, the student requested 7.0 credits worth of classes and 6.0 units worth of classes.

3. The information in the upper right corner of the screen explains whether the requests made have been Approved by Counselor and whether requests have been Locked for Students. In the example shown, the student's counselor has reviewed the requests made. The requests screen is not Locked for Students meaning students are still able to submit and edit requests.

4. The table shown displays the Course title, Credits, Course # (number), Elective Priority, Term (if a specific term is specified), With Teacher (if a specific teacher is specified), Without Teacher (if a specific teacher is specified), With Period (if a specific period is specified), Without Period (if a specific period is specified), Approved By Teacher, and Last Modified By.

5. To export the course requests to an Excel spreadsheet, click the Excel icon in the Export section.

6. To print the course requests, click the Printer icon in the Export section.

Once enabled, you can begin filtering data. To add more than one filter to a column, click on the green plus sign. To delete an added filter, click on the red minus sign. Select the gray arrow for more filtering options. For more information click on the following article: Filters.

Students can enter requests in the table at the top of the screen or by using the Quick List at the bottom of the screen. The Quick List is organized by graduation subject.

4. For electives, enter the Elective Priority in the field next to the course pull-down.

A priority of 1 ensures the elective is scheduled at the same level as courses without a number. A priority of 2 or higher will only be scheduled if a course with an elective priority of 1 could not be scheduled. Leaving the priority blank indicates that this is a core or non-elective course. If this is left blank, than alternative requests will not be looked at by the system.
