There are two terms that appear on the FerrisConnect Course Request form associated with cross-listings. One, as seen in Figure 1 below, is "Parent." As you might guess, on a subsequent form you'll encounter the word, "Children."
The "Parent refers to the course that you wish to serve as the placeholder for the courses you are combining (i.e., cross-listing). The courses you are combining, then, are the "Children." We'll explain this further in the following instructions and screenshots.
Before doing that, there's one more important consideration at this point. In Figure 1, you'll notice that only one course (CRN 80152) has been checked. This means that there will only be one instance of cross-listed courses; CRN 80152 will serve as the "Parent." If you wish to have more than one "Parent" (meaning you want to create two or more instances of cross-listed courses), you can indicate so at this point in the process. You would simply place a checkmark next to the CRNs for which those courses will serve as "Parents" and then click "Submit." This is illustrated in Figure 8 below in which two courses -- CRNs 80152 and 80224 -- will be "Parents."
