Course Match

Course Match Overview

Course Match is an advanced algorithm that assigns classes based on your preferences. The algorithm uses the rankings submitted by you and your classmates to determine the demand for every class. Using that information, it gives you as many of your highly ranked classes as it can. The algorithm was created by Cognomos, based on Nobel prize winning research in economics, and is employed at several peer institutions.  For those interested in the details, the Course Match algorithm is a direct application of market design theory.
