Sectioning

Instructional staff may use the sectioning tool through the Fifth Monday, which is the final date for add/drop (with fee). No further section changes may be made after that date.

The my.harvard sectioning tool is available to instructional staff who create or edit discussion, laboratory or other class sections. The tool is also helpful for courses that wish to move students among various enrollment sections (ex: language courses).

  • Sectioning support can be found online, in person, and via email.
    • For help with sectioning see our step-by-step guides.
    • See side-bar menu for upcoming Walk-in Labs. The FAS Registrar's Office offers walk-in lab sectioning support before the start of each term. Attendees should bring laptops to the lab.
    • For questions regarding sectioning errors or access to the tool contact sectioning@fas.harvard.edu.
       
  • Canvas sites are automatically generated for sections created in the tool. For help with Canvas sites contact Academic Technologues at atg@fas.harvard.edu.
     
  • Classroom requests for sections must be made on RoomBook after sections are created in the tool. Visit the classrooms page for full details. All classes (including sections and labs) must start at a designated start time. Classes run up to 75 minutes or 2 hours and 45 minutes, with 15 minutes reserved for pass time between classes.
