Course Scheduling

General Guidelines

Generally, the university uses its classrooms very well. Adhering to the following tenets could enhance scheduling opportunities:

Departmental Rooms

Courses taught in departmental rooms need to be submitted to Room Scheduling or the (Kuali) Course Offering Change Form (COCF) so this information may be entered. Unlike general university classroom assignments, these room assignments are carried forward from year to year and are removed only when Room Scheduling receives a COCF request of the room change or removal. Entering this room information assures accurate room information is being released to the students and assists with the scheduling of courses for the university.

Room Scheduling also works with departments by consulting on course changes for semesters and enforcing standard time and day combinations. If a non-standard time is used, a departmental room location must be provided.

Before you make any changes to a course, contact Room Scheduling first. Once permission is given, a Kuali form must be submitted and approved by Room Scheduling and the Office of the Registrar.

Student Accommodations

When scheduling courses for students who need accommodations, Room Scheduling works closely with the Student Accessibility Services Office. There are times when courses need to be moved to accommodate the needs of these students. If the room change affects a general university classroom or auditorium, the affected department is always notified of the changes.

If courses are scheduled in a departmental room, Room Scheduling will inform the Student Accessibility Services Office, who then notifies the department of the accommodation they will need to provide to the student.
