There are three ways to search for Courses and or Classes.  First, the distinction between courses vs classes:

  • Courses - Offerings that are not necessarily offered every term.
  • Classes - Course sections that are offered a particular term.

Search options:

Instructions for Browse Classes: PASS CX - Class Search Options - Browse Classes

Instructions for Class Search: PASS CX - Class Search Options - Course Catalog


Class Search is a way to get down to the section level right away and has the most filter options.  

3. Choose the Term and Career at a minimum.  The search defaults to have the open classes only box checked. 

TIP for Students: Uncheck this box when searching for a closed class for which you need departmental permission to enroll.  You may Enroll from class search or add it to your cart and enroll from the Shopping cart.  

Other options for filters include:

  • Campus
  • Subject
  • Catalog Number
  • Keyword search
  • Class Number - a unique 4-digit number for every Subject-catalog number-section combination.
  • Course Attribute/Course Attribute Value - the combination of the two allow to search for General Education categories.

  • Days of the Week
  • Location (similar to Campus)
  • Instruction Mode, i.e., online, independent study, etc.
  • Session, i.e., First 8-week, Second 8-week
