Course Search

The searchable schedule has been integrated into this larger, more comprehensive Kenyon Compass 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 go to Course Search, first login through, and you will be directed to the login page for the Compass website. You will also be asked to confirm your sign in with Duo 2FA. Another way to log is to go to and click “Login” on the top right. Under “login using your institution” select “Kenyon College” from the list. Then use your Kenyon username and password to log in. (Pragya Systems is the team that builds the Compass website.).

To search for a course, use the search bar on the top of the homepage once you log in. The search bar looks very similar to the searchable schedule but with more advanced functions. Be sure to choose the  “course” button instead of the “all” button if you simply want to search for classes (shown by the picture below)! A quick video tutorial on how to log in and make the full use of the search functions for courses can be found [here].

Hover your mouse over the top "Search" button to see the instructions for more advanced searches.

How to View Courses and Details?

The default course view is in grid view, where you can see many courses at the same time. 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. You can also choose to see it in list view, which resembles the searchable schedule course view, by clicking the small blue box on the top left of the course search page.

How to Add A Course?

First use the search box under “Course” option 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. 

Another way to add a course is through the course detail page. Click into the course that interests you, and click the top right button "add to the stream" to add it. A quick video tutorial on how to add a course and see the calendar view can be found [here].
