CourseClass RESTful Web Services API

The CourseClass web service provides a way to retrieve the Course class XML and the Course term XML.

This includes:

  • Getting the Course Class XML given a CourseClass ID
  • Getting the Course term XML of a specified term (we can get the data for current term or for three past terms or for four future terms)

How to get started with the CourseClass API

Follow the Middleware and Integration Services Integration (MaIS) checklist for RESTful Web Services. If you need help, are not sure whether the Web APIs are the best method for integrating with the registry, or just have some questions, contact the MaIS team.
