How to Obtain a List of SWS Courses

A list of SWS courses for a given term can be found through Banner using the Look Up Classes search page (see instructions below).

Note to Advisors: In the past, the SWS program has provided a list of current courses via this website. However, it is not possible to generate a course list that is accurate for all sections. Some departments choose to provide both SWS and non-SWS courses for the same course in the same semester. As a consequence, some students have mistakenly selected the wrong section. To make certain that students are choosing an SWS course section and receive credit for SWS work, Banner should be used to find specific SWS sections being offered.

How to navigate to the Look Up Classes search page in Banner

Once you have logged into Banner:

If a student:

  1. Select Student.
  2. Select Registration.
  3. Select Search for Classes. This will bring you to the Select Term or Date Range page.
  4. Select the Term from the drop down menu. This will bring you to the Look Up Classes search page (see the included screenshot below).

If a faculty or staff member:

  1. Select Faculty and Advisors.
  2. Select Annual Schedule Search Summary.
  3. Select the Term from the drop down menu. This will bring you to the Look Up Classes search page (see the included screenshot below).
