COURSE SECTION Table
ExplanationContains term-specific information about a course section, such as the course ID, ownership (school, department, etc.), cross-listing, credit, enrollment, scheduler information, etc. A course may have one course section, usually a lecture or seminar, or it may have several course sections, for example a lecture section and several recitation sections. One record exists for each term the course is offered at Penn, and for every section of the course in that term. Students enroll in course sections, not in courses. (See the ENROLLMENT table) Similarly, faculty teach course sections. Different instructors can be teaching the various sections of a course, or the same instructor might teach all the sections. (see the COURSE SECTION INSTRUCTOR table) If the course has multiple sections and has a co-requisite requirement, students will be enrolled in multiple course sections for the same course, for example the lecture and one of the recitation sections.
