Section Numbers & Designators

The class section number is either composed of 2-digit numbers or three alphanumeric characters. When scheduling a class in Banner it is important to use the appropriate section number because it provides information such as the type of class it is (face-to-face, hybrid, or distance learning), time the class meets, length of the class, if the class belongs to a special program, and other important details. Besides class information, section number is also used as a key parameter in various college reports.
