TLTC ANGEL Course Creation

Understanding Course IDs

Course IDs can be very daunting at first, but once you know how to break them down into their parts they are much easier to understand.

  • first 4 characters = course code (e.g., ACCT for Accounting)
  • next 3 digits = course number (e.g., 205)
  • next 2 digits = section number (e.g., 01)
  • next 2 characters = location code (e.g., EL for e-learning, SL for Storm Lake, etc.)
  • next 4 characters = term code (e.g., 121T)
    • first 2 digits = academic year, uses the latter year (e.g., 2011-2012 academic year uses "12" in the code)
    • next 1 digit = the semester/term number (e.g., 1-6 for the GPS terms in a year or 1-3 for Storm Lake where 1=fall, 2=interim, and 3=spring)
    • next 2 characters = the code for semester (S), graduate term (A), or undergraduate term (T)

Multiple Sections

If you have multiple sections for a course, it may you like you were given multiple links to the same course on ANGEL. However, you will be able to tell by looking at the section number in the course ID. This will tell you which section you will be entering when you click on the course.

If you wish to merge your rosters from all sections into one course, please look at the Roster Synchronization guide.
