How do I enable the extra credit slot option?

If your school offers extra credit classes that aren't part of regular course selections, such as night school or summer school courses, you can enable an Extra Credit Slot on the student's Course Planner. The additional slot will appear under the Submit button so students can differentiate these classes from regular course requests.

Extra Credit Slots are different from alternate course request slots and should not be used for alternate course selection.

To add Extra Credit Slots in Course Planner:

  1. From your Advisor Homepage, click Course Planner.
  2. Click Grade Settings.
  3. Select the edit (pencil) icon beside the grade where you'd like to add the extra credit slot.
  4. Beside Extra Credit Slots, enter the number of slots to appear and click Submit. Your changes will be saved and you'll return to the Grade Settings homepage. Repeat steps for additional grades as needed.

If you want custom text to appear within the slot, here's how to change it:

  1. From your Advisor Homepage, click Course Planner.
  2. Click General Settings.
  3. Click the link for Edit Custom Messages/Labels.
  4. From the list under Custom Message/Label, choose Other Credit
  5. Enter your preferred text into the Replace Above With... text box and click Save. The page will reload and your changes will be saved.

Note: When a school exports its course requests, the information in the Extra Credit Slot is typically not included in the export, but it can be if you request it. Speak to your Career Cruising Implementation Manager for details.
