The Banner 9 schedule of classes, which has been in preview for the last year, will become the primary schedule on March 9. The new Banner 9 schedule of classes provides a series of new features, a modern web experience, and delivers fast, real time search results. Among the new features, you will find:
Students, faculty and staff can access the new schedule of classes using this direct link, or by selecting the "Course Schedule" link the Registrar channel within myRedDragon.
Select a term using the drop, or filter the results by typing into the text field.
After selecting a term, you will be presented with the schedule search page. From here, you can search all published courses. Use the basic search, or click the advanced search link to perform a more complex search.
When performing a search, you can select from the drop down fields or type in the text field. You can select multiple search items in each field.
When searching for any value, you may use the percent sign (%) as a wildcard. For example, you can search for all 100 level courses by typing "1%".
After you select your search items, you will be presented with the search result table. The new result table allows you to review advanced course information quickly, without leaving the page.
You can tailor your view of the page by clicking the settings gear in the top right corner. Click on the checkboxes to show or hide columns.
To sort a column in ascending or descending order, click the text in the column header.

Why is the schedule changing?
The schedule is part of the modern Banner 9 web interface that is already in use in other areas of the system. This is part of the ongoing conversion to new tools, as older Banner 8 features and services are retired and updated to work with Banner 9.
Is this schedule public, or is it just for students and faculty?
The schedule of classes is available to the public. When students, faculty and staff are logged in, they will have access to additional search features.
Will I use this when I register?
Yes. The public schedule is a variant of the schedule used when adding and dropping courses. This means, you will have a seamless registration experience and will not be required to view different versions of the schedule. We anticipate rolling out improved registration features for the Fall 2020 pre-registration window.
Is the schedule real time?
Yes. The schedule is real time and any changes that occur in registration will be immediately reflected on the schedule. In addition the schedule uses term and catalog-appropriate course descriptions and information.
Can I still see "class notes" and special notices?
Yes. You can view class notes for courses - without leaving the page - by clicking the course title within search results. Select "Requirements and Notes". Class notes have also been expanded to include additional information such as required materials and web links.
Will I still be able to access textbook information?
Yes. The schedule of classes still includes a link to the College's textbook lookup tool. Simply click on the "Textbook Information" link in the course details.
Will this work on my phone and tablet?
Yes. A major reason for moving to new services is that they are designed to work with a broad array of screens and devices. The new schedule is mobile-friendly and responsive.
Can I view past terms?
Yes. The schedule will give you the ability to look at past terms and course descriptions. Simply select the term you would like to view on the term selection page.
When searching for departments or subjects, the full title is shown. Do I search by title or code?
Either will work. The schedule searches for codes (prefixes) and the formal name when filtering. You can search using any combination, and you can select multiple departments and subjects when searching.
Can I search by keyword?
Yes. The schedule lets you search for keywords using an exact phrase, all of the text entered, or just a portion of text. The keyword options search within the course description, title, subject and associated notes and information.
Will I still be able to use the former course schedule?
Yes. The former schedule will remain online through Spring 2020 to allow users to transition, and to give the campus an opportunity to update web pages, documents, instructions and guidance. It will be retired in early June 2020.
