Classrooms for scheduled
instruction and final examinations are assigned by the Registrar in consultation
with the department chairperson or designee. The primary goal of these
guidelines is to maximize room and seat utilization.
A. General Guidelines
- Priority in general assignment classrooms is
determined by Executive Vice Chancellor or designee.
- Departments are instructed to schedule classes in
their priority rooms before requesting other rooms.
- Room requests should be made on the basis of
anticipated enrollment being equal to or greater than 80 percent of the room
capacity. The Registrar will assign rooms based upon this principle.
- Normally, 3 and 4 unit courses must be scheduled
for three 50-minute periods per week (as Monday-Wednesday-Friday) beginning on
the hour from 8:00 a.m. to 6:50 p.m. or two 80-minute periods per week (as
Tuesday-Thursday) from 8:00 a.m. to 6:20 p.m. Normally, 5 unit courses are
scheduled daily for 50-minute periods per week (as
Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday) beginning on the hour from 8:00 a.m.
to 6:50 p.m. Please visit our Classroom Scheduling Modules page to see a list of time slots for general assignment classrooms.
- Three-hour courses will be scheduled after
multi-day courses are scheduled and one-hour discussions will be scheduled last.
- Specialized facility needs, such as laboratory
demonstrations and unique media services needs, will be considered and
accommodated whenever possible. However, maximum room utilization must take
- Requests which underutilize space will be scheduled
at less popular hours or after other scheduling needs have been met.
- Classes and final examinations are to be held at
the times and places officially scheduled by the Registrar.
B. Resolution of Problems
Any conflicts not resolved using the above guidelines will be
settled by the deans' designees from the applicable schools or programs and the
Executive Vice Chancellor's designee.
