When you requested your course through MyCUInfo, if you asked that it be cross-listed with other courses or associated courses (e.g., recitations and labs), sections will be automatically created and students will be enrolled in sections based on information derived from our student information system, Campus Solutions. Sections can also be created after the start of a course by contacting the IT Service Center at 5-Help or help@colorado.edu.

The following documentation will help you to manually create sections if you prefer to manage your sections and student section assignments yourself (not the recommended option).

This tutorial is operating system independent.

*Note: TAs are not automatically assigned to sections upon course/section creation. Please refer to the Assigning Students and TAs to Sections tutorial to learn about adding TAs to course sections.
