Cautions

  • Students who enroll in a course with Section Types can subsequently have the Section Type on their enrollment record changed. It is possible for the Section Type in ENROLLMENT_SECT_TYPE_TERM and the Section Type in COURSE_SECT_TYPE_TERM to be different, even within the same course section in the same term. One common example is WATU, where the Section Type is maintain on a student-by-student basis, and is not always assigned to everyone enrolled in the course.
