Fall 2022 Course Shells Available

by Jasmine Checchi on 2022-07-19T15:55:54-04:00 | Comments

New Fall Course Shells Are Available

New Semester, New Shells

It's that time again - course shells for the new semester have arrived! As you enjoy the final moments of summer, consider this time to roll over your course in time for planning week. When Falcon Online course shells are generated, instructors are enrolled in their specific course shells. If a course shell is not visible, the department has not released it in the schedule for open enrollment, or it may be a limited access course.

What Students See

Student enrollments begin 30 days prior to the start of the semester, students can see their courses, but cannot access the course until the first day of the semester start date. This means students can see their courses listed but cannot enter them until the first official day of class. All students can access their Falcon Online home page Announcements, Office 365 widget, and 24/7 Falcon Online technical support. If you wish to contact your students before classes begin, you can use the Falcon Online course shell to send an email to your Classlist welcoming students and providing any housekeeping updates.

The Falcon Online enrollments are updated daily at 7:30 am, 2:30 pm, 9:30 pm, and 2:30 am. As always, if you have questions, feel free to contact the Faculty Innovation Center at 386-506-3485 or Thanks!
