Course Match Tips

  • Reminder: your utilities are weighted by a section's CU value.
  • Use the "My Schedules" tool. This element of the user interface can help you identify how Course Match will make intelligent decisions on your behalf. When you notice Course Match making a choice you would prefer it didn't, adjust your preferences accordingly.
  • Assign utility to any class section you could see yourself taking.
  • If you don't want two courses to appear together in your schedule assign to the combination a value less than 0.
  • Again, utilities are weighted by Credit Unit. A .5cu course with a utility of 100 actually has a weighted utility of 50.
  • Utilities are relative. On a scale of 1-100 a course with a utility value of 100 is 10-times more preferable than a course with a utility of 10 but so too is a course with a utility of 10, 10-times more preferable than a course with a utility of 1.
