Cross-Listed Classes

Cross-listed classes are created in the catalog and must be approved through the Curriculum process. When approved and implemented, cross-listed classes share enrollments between two or more departments/colleges (e.g. COMM 168A: Communication Studies is the “home” department with METR and ENVS as "dependent" departments).

If the department scheduler is unsure if their department is the “home” department,

  1. the Course Catalog table in MySJSU (PeopleSoft)
  2. Under the Offerings tab, look at the Course Offering Nbr which should say "1" confirming it is the "home" department.  

Scheduling a Cross-Listed Class

(Only for Regular Session)

Prior to Round 1 of the regular session scheduling cycle, all cross-listed classes, including the "home" sections will be deleted from the MySJSU (PeopleSoft) "rolled" term. 

Departments who wish to offer any cross-listed courses will always need to coordinate their scheduling needs (including any special accommodations and/or room needs) through the "home" department. During Round 1 and 1.5 of the regular session scheduling cycle, only sections from the "home" department should be scheduled in MySJSU.  All "dependent" sections scheduled in MySJSU will be deleted. 

Before Round 2 ends, AS&SM will run a process to link all cross-listed subjects or “dependents” to the scheduled “home” sections.

Cross-Listed Class Scenario

ANTH 140 is a cross-listed course with PH 140.

      • ANTH = "home" department and would like to offer 4 sections of this course;
      • PH = "dependent" department and would like to offer 3 sections of this course;

The Public Health Department will need to contact the Anthropology Department to schedule their sections. Anthropology Department will then need to schedule a total of 7 sections of this course under the ANTH subject in MySJSU during Round 1 and 1.5.

Prior to the end of Round 2, AS&SM will run a process to add and link the "dependent" section (PH 140) to the "home" (ANTH 140) sections.

Registributing Enrollment of Cross-Listed Classes 

(Only for Regular Session)

All the enrollments of cross-listed classes will be assigned to the "home" department unless an agreement is in place for an adjustment. If the agreement between the departments and colleges are assigned to only the "home" department. A Request of FTES Distribution of Cross-Listed Courses form must be submitted to AS&SM for any redistribution of enrollment.

Each regular session term at the beginning of the semester, an information packet is sent from AS&SM to the Director of Resources and Operations (DRO). Departments should contact their DRO or College Analysts for submission deadlines for Request of FTES Distribution of Cross-Listed Courses forms.
