Frequency of Offering / Course Typically Offered - My Learning Plan uses the typically offered codes to help students know when they could plan to take a course in the future beyond the schedule of classes.  Students generally plan two to four years out, which is beyond the schedule of classes; thus, My Learning Plan needs typically offered to be accurate in order to help students plan a path to graduation that is as optimal as possible.  If a course is offered during a term that doesn’t fall into the typically offered terms then My Learning Plan would adjust when the schedule of courses is published but beyond the schedule, the system would continue to only allow students to plan the course according to the typically offered code attached to the course.
