Changes to University’s Approved Scheduling Pattern. Effective Fall 2013. Updated structure provides more flexibility and improves space utilization. Benefits of this new scheduling structure:
Effective Fall 2013
Time periods: Monday-Friday (note the ‘nesting’ of 50-minute courses within 75-minute courses)
9:10 am & 10:10 am
Prime Times are periods 3-5
Notes: courses that meet for 50 minutes, three times a week must meet on MWF. Unfortunately allowing any other three-day combinations would lead to extensive complications in student schedules.
Distribution Constraints: space utilization
Constraints are applied to all classes that have a meeting pattern. The constraints are applied to courses that meet in department spaces. Independent studies and courses without meeting patterns won’t be counted. Off-Campus courses are not counted, and the above schedule does not apply.
