How to Form a Link to the Live Schedule of Classes

You can now link to Schedule+ to display live schedule data for your classes. 

Why is this important? It allows departmental web authors and faculty web authors to link to current schedule data directly without copying and pasting the data into static web pages. This way it helps keep our web pages updated by linking to current data rather than storing data that can become out of date.

See a sample of how a schedule link could be used in the History web

Syntax

The URL can accept up to three parameters, term, class and type.
Here is the first part of the URL: http://www.cerritos.edu/schedule/classes.cgi?

After that you will need at least the class parameter. The other two, term and type are optional.

Class is a comma separated list of all the classes you want to list using the subject code and course number, e.g. class=hist101,hist102.

To return all the history classes use class=hist with no course number.

To return a list of sections use the section numbers, class=26476,26477.

Term is a code representing the semester, e.g. term=sp2008. It can be a PeopleSoft term code or a term abbreviation with the year as in the list below. If you omit the term it defaults to the current term.

su2007 - Summer 2007
fa2007 - Fall 2007
sp2008 - Spring 2008

Type is the status. If you omit the type all types are returned.

c - closed
o - open
s - stopped
t - tentative
x - cancelled

Example: type=costx for closed, open, stopped, tentative, cancelled.

Here's an example URL:
http://www.cerritos.edu/schedule/classes.cgi?class=engl20&type=cx&term=sp2008

Here's a sample link that defaults to the current term and all types for english 100:
http://www.cerritos.edu/schedule/classes.cgi?course=engl100

Here is a sample link for Spring showing all types of all the history classes:
http://www.cerritos.edu/schedule/classes.cgi?term=sp2008&class=hist

The results are presented alphabetically regardless of the order in the list. Ampersands need to be represented as %26, so A&P must be encoded as A%26P.

Class, class, Classes and classes are synonymous, as are Course, course, Courses and courses and Terms, terms, Term and term.

Lower case course subject names are allowed.

If you specify a class number, any associated auto enroll classes will not be shown.

You can see a list of subject codes on this page: http://www.cerritos.edu/schedule/.
