Cross-Listing Courses

A cross-listed course is a course that is offered under more than one departmental heading.  Cross-listed courses (ie., courses offered by more than one department) will be assigned the same number in each department, in which it is offered.  The courses carry the same attributes (breadth & level), have the same catalog descriptions in each listing, and have identical course prerequisites.  All students who enroll in cross-listed courses, regardless of the subject list through which he/she may have enrolled, will have the same course experience.

  • Because of the way we handle room scheduling, any two or more courses that are taught in the same room at the same time and have identical meeting patterns should be cross-listed in Banner.
  • Contact the Office of the Registrar about any courses that do not fit this criterion, that need to be cross-listed.
  • This will also include all courses listed at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
  • Courses are first built on SSASECT as they normally would be.
  • Go to SSAXLST enter your term if you know the Cross List Group Identifier that you want to work with, enter it here. If you don't know the Cross List Group Identifier select the arrow to the right of the Cross List Group Identifier
  • This will bring you to the Banner form SSAXLSQ which will start wanting you to run a query. Execute a query and it will show you all of the cross listed courses for the term. If you want to work with an existing cross listing double click on the row with the cross listing you want and it will take you back to SSAXLST with the information for the cross-listed courses.
  • If you want to create a new cross listing, find the highest number that has been used and then add one to and enter this number in SSAXLST to create a new Cross List Group Identifier.
    • Please note that there are only two alpha-numeric digits available for use. The convention is 01-99, then 1A-1Z, 2A-2Z, 3A-3Z, etc.
  • In the Cross List Enrollment block enter the Maximum Enrollment (the combined Maximum enrollment for each section).  Next block, then enter the CRNs for the courses that you wish to cross-list. The classroom will be selected using the Cross List Maximum Enrollment.  Please note:  If a change is made to the enrollment of a single section within the cross-listed group, the Cross List Maximum Enrollment will also need to be adjusted.
