What are "functional" Course Offers?

Functional Course Offers are for any budgeted item needed that supports groups of courses. Examples of these courses are below:

MENTOR – Every department has a version of this course (ex: ANTH MENTOR). Please use your department's designation for this course when assigning your Associate Mentors.

 NOTE: First-time Associates have the opportunity to participate in the Summer Teaching Associate Mentoring Program (STIA), in which Associates are mentored by an experienced faculty member who provides planning and pedagogical support throughout the session in which they teach. It is expected that departments will have identified faculty to serve in this role.  https://www.summer.ucsb.edu/summer-mentor-information


PLC HOLDR – Every department has a placeholder course (Example - MATH PLC HOLDR).  Please use this course in circumstances when you are not yet sure of the course number or if the course is pending MCA. Be sure to enter in the Notes text box the course name and number that is pending.
