Best Practices

Students are enrolled:

  • Change the course section registration status to "Pending" in Offerings Planner
  • If the course is offered through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and has more than 10 students enrolled, please seek permission from the CLAS Dean's Office by contacting either Marlys Boote or Kathy Hall prior to notifying the students of the cancellation. 
  • Notify the enrolled student(s) the section is being cancelled.  This would be a good time to suggest an alternative course section (if applicable).
  • Once the student is notified, please send reg-maui-support@uiowa.edu a follow-up email including:
    • Session
    • Course Subject:Course Number:Section Number
    • An explanation that students have been notified
    • If more than 10 students enrolled in CLAS offered course and CLAS Dean's Office has approved cancellation
  • Due to the impact for those students who have the cancelled section as part of their Preferred Schedules in Schedule Builder, please use the Schedule Builder panel in Offerings Planner to notify those students.  See templates available below.

Please be aware that Reg-MAUI-Support will only move students if a course is being cancelled.  We need a full listing of the students with their HawkIDs, the section they are currently enrolled in, and the section you would like them moved to.

No Students enrolled:

  • Change the section registration status to "Cancelled" in Offerings Planner
  • Due to the impact on Schedule Builder for those student who the cancelled section is part of their Preferred Schedules in the Schedule Builder, please use the Schedule Builder panel in Offerings Planner to notify those students.  See templates available below.

Cancellation Email Template

Dear Student:

You have received this message because you included ABCD:1234:0001 in at least one Preferred Schedule in Schedule Builder.  You will not be able to enroll from Preferred Schedules with section 0001 since it has been cancelled.

If you wish to enroll in ABCD:1234 and section 0001 is the only section in your course cart filter or if this section is the only one indicated in your Preferred Schedules, you will need to rebuild your Preferred Schedules with other sections.  However, if you have other sections of ABCD:1234 already indicated in your Preferred Schedules, please use those Preferred Schedules to enroll.

Please disregard this message if you are already enrolled in another section of ABCD:1234.
