Course Scheduling Policy
Remember the F09 pilot? –Distribute course offerings more uniformly throughout the day and throughout the week –Reduce scheduling conflicts for students –Increase number of two-day per week teaching slots –Clarify and formalize existing campus scheduling practices What changed based on your feedback? –Exception process streamlined –Prime-time hours revised –Prime-time percentage revised –Standard course lengths simplified
Course Scheduling Policy Proposed for Phase 1 implementation in F13: –Standard day combinations: MWF for three-day per week courses TR, MW, WF, or MF for two-day per week courses –Standard Course Lengths –Standard Course Start Times
Course Scheduling Policy Proposed for Phase 2 implementation: –No more than 60% of each departments courses in prime-time Systems tools needed for better tracking Campus vetting process to begin F12
Cancelled Courses Sean OShea Scheduling Systems Manager
Dropping Students from Cancelled Courses Once registration has started, undergrad course cancellations are accepted via Schedule Alteration Form (SAF), signed by the Dean of the relevant department. (For College of Letters and Science, I will make arrangements to obtain Dean Nisbets signature) SAFs are available to download and print from the Office of the Registrar website: Once the course has been cancelled, the department must notify all students enrolled in the course.
Who does it? Prior to the drop deadline After the department notifies the students that the class has been cancelled and asks them to drop themselves via GOLD, any students who dont drop themselves can be dropped by the department. After the drop deadline After the department provides proof to the Office of the Registrar that all students have been notified, the Office of the Registrar will drop the students.
What else? The department follows up to make sure that no students remain in the course. This should be done 1-2 weeks after the students have been notified of the course cancellation.
Notifying students Dear Student, The following class, in which you are currently enrolled has been cancelled: > Please log into GOLD and drop this class from your schedule as soon as possible. Failure to do so could result in an F or NP grade appearing on your record. In order to avoid negative impacts to your cumulative progress or financial aid status, you may need to add an additional course to your schedule to replace the one that has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact the advisor for the department offering this course.
Office of the Registrar contacts cancelling a course: Sean OShea Removing students from a cancelled course after the drop deadline: Luke Lindquist

Master Course Approval Requests Instructional Activity Type
Effective Quarter Submissions must be made for an effective date that is after a quarter that is in production.
Crosslisting & Repeated Courses Courses are typically only Cross-Listed with courses from other departments When a course has changed its number, the Former Number must be listed here. It MUST have effective dates. Fill in the Through quarter to be the same quarter for which the new course is starting.
Crosslisting & Repeated Courses Dropdown Menu
Repeating An Illegal Repeat is a course that is similar enough to another course that you cant take both, but theyre not exactly the same. If a repeat does not fall into any of the categories described above, it should be listed as an Other Repeat. Effective dates are optional for illegal and Other Repeats.
Repeating If the repeat information coded above is good, leave this marked as No (which is the default anyhow) If the repeat information for this course, as stated in the Repeat Comments box below, is too complicated to code in the fields above, change this to Yes.
