Course Search

The searchable schedule has been integrated into Kenyon Compass, a broader, more comprehensive source of information at Kenyon to help you plan for the long-term, not just each registration period. In Compass’ Course Search, you can search courses by subject, division (particularly useful for diversification requirements), day/time preferences, and a host of other parameters.

How to Search

To log in to the Compass Course Search enter your Kenyon username and password. You will then be asked to confirm your sign in with Duo Two-Factor Authentication

To search for a course, use the search bar on the top of the homepage once you log in. The search features look very similar to the old searchable schedule but it includes more advanced functions. Be sure that the  “course section” button instead is selected instead of the “all” button if you simply want to search for classes (as seen in the screenshot below)! To learn how to log in and make full use of the search functions for courses visit our login and course search video.

How to View Courses and Details?

The default course view is the list view, which resembles the searchable schedule course view.

You can also choose to see the grid view, where you can see many courses at the same time, by clicking the small blue box on the top left of the course search page. Hover your mouse over the courses or simply click on them, and you can see more details, including course description, class time, instructor, and many more.

How to Add A Course to a Stream?

First use the search box under “Course Section” to find whatever class you want. One way to add the course is that, on the course list/grid view, click the three-dots icon on the top right of each course box to add it to your stream, which is your folder for courses! You can also see the calendar view by clicking on “Check Schedule”, or the list view with course details by clicking the Detailed View on the calendar view page.
