Data about each course section during a term, such as its title, whether it was cross-listed, and enrollment statistics. Contains one record for each course section that was offered, for each term that the course section has data.

Cautions

  • DO NOT CONFUSE this and its related tables with CENSUS_TERM. These tables use "CEN" to refer to the Census Date, as of which reporting is done for the Federal government. CENSUS_TERM, in contrast, refers to the University Census, a periodic report of every employee of the University.
  • Statistics for adds, drops, etc., may have changed after the census in certain circumstances.
