The Course Import loads the course information for a specific assessment period and assigns a single responsible faculty to the course.
NOTE: In the Course Import, select one field that is unique to the faculty member for identifying the Instructor in the course. Choose either the User Name, Email Address, or ID Number field as the identifier. Campus Labs recommends using either the User Name or E-mail Address.

|CourseNumber||No||Each Course must have a Course Number.|
|CourseSection||No||Courses may have a Section ID.|
