Class Scheduling:

All departments should plan to have a minimum of 10% of their schedule offered outside of the 9am to 2pm Prime Times.
  • Traditional Lecture courses will be scheduled in the attached spaces first. Please see the revised capacities document.
  • We will continue to work to spread our schedule across the days and times of the week. Meeting patterns with the highest utilization, and therefore with the most frequent space constraints are:
    • MWF:
      • 10:10 am
      • 12:20 pm
      • 1:25 pm
    • MW:
      • 1:00 pm
    • TR:
      • 9:30 am
      • 11:00 am
      • 2:00 pm

Data Entry within ClassAct:

  • Class Notes are one of the most time-intensive items for us to clean up. Please use standard notes as much as possible.
  • You can update all section details except the section number. All Online section numbers have already been reset to traditional section numbering patterns.
