To define standard teaching times and thereby efficiently use instructional spaces and maximize scheduling options for students.
All academic units.
Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost
Units should follow the campus standard teaching schedule:
Classes taught within the campus standard teaching schedule as noted above, and that adhere to campus deadlines for requests, have priority and are scheduled first in General Assignment Classrooms.
Classes not meeting the campus standard teaching schedule should be taught outside of Peak Hours and in Departmental Spaces when possible.
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost is responsible for setting policies and procedures for management of all campus classrooms and learning spaces. It adheres to the following guiding principles in managing classroom space inventories and class schedules:
The Office of the Registrar allocates General Assignment Classrooms based on historical enrollments or new program initiatives with expected enrollment increases and may change allocated space from semester to semester. The Office of the Registrar may review the distribution of courses and seek alternative course times to ensure efficient classroom utilization.
Units are expected to use all Allocated Spaces and Departmental Spaces as fully as possible prior to requesting additional General Assignment Classrooms.
It is recognized that there may be academic and pedagogical reasons for scheduling classes at non-standard hours and/or days. Units should continually review these instances to assure a need for the use of non-standard schedules.
Questions about these principles and policies may be referred to the Office of the Registrar, Catalog Management and Section Scheduling unit
