Add or Modify the Instructor / Advisor Table

This is a tutorial for class scheduling staff only. No log in is required.

Introduction

This guide reviews how CSUN staff granted security access to the Schedule of Classes (SOC) add or modify the Instructor/Advisor Table. Use the Instructor/Advisor Table and Approved Courses pages to:

  1. Add a new instructor record.
  2. Modify an existing instructor record to include a new department (Academic Org).

Tip: If you have a group of new instructors, you can add them all at once to the Instructor/Advisor Table before assigning them to their classes in the Meetings page.

Troubleshooting

Two reasons why an instructor cannot be assigned to the class Meetings page:

  1. The effective date entered in the Instructor/Advisor Table is later than the start of the term/semester.
  2. The academic organization has not been added to the Approved Courses page in the Instructor/Advisor Table.
