Professor: Creating Additional Courses

If you have multiple sections or are starting a new semester with Top Hat, you'll need to create a new course! Creating a course is just a few clicks away. 

You'll first want to head to your Top Hat Lobby or Courses Page by clicking on the Top Hat icon (Old Top Hat) or X (New Top Hat) in the upper left hand corner of your course. 

Old Top Hat

New Top Hat

To create a course, click the blue + Create a Course button and a text box will pop up. In the text box, you can specify the details of your new course.

Just like the first time you made a course, you can fill out the Course Name (including the semester you're teaching it!) and under the Advanced Setting you can add additional information such as Course Code, Description, a course Password or the Subject. Advanced Settings for your course are not required; the key information for your course should be included in the Course Name.
