Class Search

The Class Search is used to find classes that match chosen criteria. These instructions will show how to enter criteria in the spaces available to return the list of classes most relevant to the user’s needs.

From your myWCU homepage, click on the Classes tile, then click Class Search

How to Search for Classes

  1. If you know the Subject (i.e. PSY) and Course Number (i.e. 100), you can search on that criteria only and all possible Instruction Modes for that course will appear.
  2. If you want to complete a board search (i.e. search for all courses that fulfill the Science Gen Ed requirement), all possible Instruction Modes will appear in the search results.
    • You may further narrow your search results by searching for courses based on the Mode of Instruction, which is available within the Additional Search Criteria section.
