Advanced Search Help

College
This page allows you to search the class schedules of all colleges in the South Orange County Community College District. Select the appropriate college or select "Any" to search all class schedules.

Term
You can search any of the terms that are currently available online.

Status
The default search returns classes that are closed and open. This field allows you to restrict your query to a specific class status.

Ticket
If you know a specific class ticket number that you want to look up, enter it in this field.

Keywords
This field provides a way for you to search the title, schedule description, catalog description, comments, and course ID of the classes using a key word or phrase.  This search supports the boolean operators AND, OR, NOT and NEAR.  If you just enter two or more words without enclosing them in quotes, it will assume you only want to see classes that have all of the words affiliated with the class (defaults to AND).  Words enclosed in quotes will be treated as a phrase and must appear in the same order you type them.

Please note that if you are searching by course ID, you may have trouble finding a class because many of our courses have very cryptic course IDs (such as N for Nursing or GD for Graphic Design).  In this case you may just want to search for a word that would likely appear in one of the descriptions.

Instructor
Enter the last name of an instructor in this field and your search will be restricted to only classes that he/she is teaching. Note: This only works with the last name of the instructor and is case-insensitive.

Location
This field allows you to restrict your search to On-Campus or Off-Campus classes.

Length
This field allows you to select the length of the class. The default will show all, but you can specify full-term, first 8 week, second 8 week, or irregular classes.

IGETC
IGETC stands for the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum and is useful if you need to fulfill a specific IGETC requirement. You can select the specific requirement from the list, and your search will only display classes that meet that requirement.

Subject
This box allows you to restrict your search to courses that are offered in a specific subject area. You can choose multiple subjects at one time by selecting them using CTRL/Click or Shift/Click (hold down the CRTL or Shift keys and then click on a range of subjects).

Day/Time
You can restrict your search to classes that are offered during specific days and times during the day. You can use the radio buttons to clear all of the checkmarks, set all of them, or set them in a typical class pattern (Mon/Wed or Tue/Thu).

The time ranges are defined as classes that begin:
Morning: Before noon
Afternoon: Between noon and 4:15 PM
Evening: 4:30 or later
