Most courses in Carmen include a single section that corresponds to a section in the Registrar's system. Courses in the Registrar's system that include combined sections (lectures, labs, and/or recitations; cross-listed courses; or courses with students in different programs / careers) will generally result in Carmen courses with multiple sections.
Faculty and staff may use this form to request that sections within Carmen be shifted to different courses if needed. Whenever possible, these processes should be requested before the course starts, to reduce disruption of student work.
Definitions of Processes:
- Merge - A section from one course is MOVED to another course. Courses can be merged when students in different sections will be interacting with each other in Carmen. The course from which the section was moved becomes inaccessible to all users. Any existing content, student submissions, or grades will only be preserved in the "main" course.
- Split - One or all sections from a multi-section course are SPLIT OFF into their own, new Carmen shells. The new shells have no content, but the instructor can copy all content (quizzes, grade structure, etc.) into the new shells. Student submissions cannot be copied, but the instructor can export grades prior to the split and import them into the new shell.
