Global Limit Using Grade Categories Is Not Applying Across Requirements And Requirement Groups. (Doc ID 2987680.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 21, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Academic Advisement - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Global limit set on Requirement Group does not seem to be working across all other Requirement Groups and Requirements.

Follow these steps to set up a global course limit:

  1. Create an academic course list that includes the courses you want to globally limit, or design a derived list that will capture the same group. For example, Physical Education ###, or a derived list of Grade category equal Pass/No Pass courses, respectively.

  2. Create an academic requirement that houses the global limit, instead of attaching the limit as a requirement line (like you do for a local unit, course, or GPA limit). In the academic requirement, set the Line Type to Global Limit on the Line Item page, define maximum parameters on the Line Item Parameters page, then attach your course list or derived course list on the Line Item Detail page. By setting up the global limit requirement as a separate requirement, you can reuse it across requirement groups at the institution (which is typically the case with global course limits).

  3. Save the academic requirement, and attach it to the highest level requirement groups for each group of students to whom you want this to apply. You can either attach it to a career level requirement group (so that it applies to all programs within the career), a program level requirement group (so that it applies to students in the programs that you specify), a plan level requirement group, or even a subplan level requirement group. What is important to note is that the system begins enforcing the global limit only when it is encountered by the advisement engine. Therefore, the higher you place the global limit, the sooner the system will "see" the requirement and begin enforcing it.
