Administrators may now unlock SGO's. To make modifications, email the administrator who is responsible for reviewing your SGO. Once the change is made, reach back out to the same administrator.
If I am assigned to review your SGO: please email me even if you don't require a change. I will then advance your SGO in OnCourse from "initial implementation" to "final implementation."
Let me know if you have any questions!
