Cautions

  • The Section Type in CEN_COURSE_SECT_TYPE and CEN_STDT_ENR_SECTION_TYPE for a given enrollment in a specific course section in a specific term may not be the same. It is possible for a student's enrollment record to have different section types than the section types on the course section table. This is particularly true for programs like WATU, where participation in a program varies student-by-student even within the same course section.
