If you impersonate an Advisor or a Teacher
  1. Select the Advisory or Course from the Groups/Classes drop-down menu
  2. Select the course requests tab
  3. You will notice the sign-up period may default to an older year. This will be the case if you have done course requests in onRecord for previous years.
Course requests are open for 2016-2017, but you are seeing 2015-2016 as the default option because you also offered course requests in onRecord last year.
