Course component represents the format in which a course is delivered, e.g., lecture, lab, field work, etc. A course can have up to 3 components identified, to be used in one of two ways:
- A single course may require registration in multiple components (lecture and lab, or lecture and discussion). At registration, students must enroll in ALL requird components. Each component is identified by a section number.
- A course may have separate sections offered in a single term under different formats (one section is lecture and discussion; another section is individualized instruction).
If course has more than one component, indicate which component will be graded. The graded component cannot be selected for more than one component of a course offering. **Note-If a lab component is included as part of a course, it will always be the graded component.
