Welcome to the Merge Course Request Form. Before continuing, please read the details below concerning the merge course process.
What is a Merged Course?
Requesting a merge course means that you want several sections of the same course combined into one shells for a given term. For example, if you are teaching several sections of CGS1100 for the Fall term, you might want these to be combined into one course shell to make for easier course management. To have this done, simply complete this form. You will receive a notification via your college email as soon as the courses have been merged.
What type of courses can be merged?
The most common type of merge involves combining several sections of an online course with identical start/end dates. Some instructors may combine sections of oncampus courses with different meeting dates (i.e. Mon/Wed and Tues/Thurs), but this requires more thought due to possible differences in assignment due dates.
The most important thing to remember is that only courses with the same course number can be merged. For example, you can merge several sections of CGS1100 but you can't merge a section of CGS1100 with a section of CGS1070.
What will happen to the individual sections once the courses have been merged?
The individual sections of the course currently listed on MyCourses will be deleted as part of the merge process. Do not place any content into the indivdual courses prior to requesting a merge.
When can I request a merge?
Merge requests must be submitted prior to the course opening for students. Once students have accessed the course, we can no longer merge as merging deletes the existing course and student data.
If you have any questions about the merge process, please contact the iTech team at 727-341-3500.
