Course Search Options

In the HCT Portal --> Application Shortcuts, there is a link that takes you to an application that allows you find course details in a very easy manner. This is especially useful for advising purposes. For example, this application can answer questions such as what are the evening (PM) CRNs for any particular course, what are all the CRNs for any course, what courses are taught by an instructor, who are the instructors for a course (for both local campus and across all campuses at the HCT) and many other questions.

Here is how to access it:

1. Log in to the HCT PORTAL. Expand the "Application Shortucts" menu by clicking on "More" and click on "Academic Information".

2. You will be directed to the Sharjah HCT Portal. From the "Academic" menu, select "Course Search".

3. You will now see "Course Information Search Options". It's through this screen that you can find detailed course information. For specific search examples, please see the examples below.
