Course Requests and MACIDs

Registrar approved course requests are filled out either by a designated departmental administrator or by the instructor of the course. The link to fill out your request can be found at the following URL:

These requests are processed automatically if the correct instructor is associated with the course in the data feed that we receive from Mosaic. If there are any discrepancies in the request (ie. an extra instructor added, no instructor associated with the course, duplicate request, etc.), then the request is processed manually by Avenue to Learn support on a first come, first served basis.

Non-registrar course requests can be made by special request by completing the intake form located at

*Note: The course request for the new term depends on Mosaic data feed and the preparation for the data exchange with Avenue. The target time frame for the Spring/Summer term is the end of February and for Fall/Winter term is the end of June. Should instructors require earlier access to prepare their courses, we usually recommend utilizing a sandbox course shell for preparing their courses. When the new term course shell is ready, just simply export the sandbox using the import/export/copy components tool, and import into the new course shell.

How to activate your course

Activating your course is the process that makes your course visible to students. All courses are created inactive so that you can develop them as far in advance as you require.
