Class Scheduling

The Office of the Registrar Academic & Classroom Scheduling works closely with the school and departmental schedule deputies to coordinate the scheduling of classes.  The resulting schedule is an important tool in meeting students' curricular needs.

If a department decides to cancel a section because of insufficient enrollment or for other administrative reasons, the schedule deputy for that department must notify the Office of the Registrar Academic & Classroom Scheduling.  It is the departmental schedule deputy's responsibility to advise each student enrolled in that section to initiate a section change for the course.  If there is no other section for that course, the student must officially drop the course.  In all cases, students still enrolled in a cancelled section the first Monday after the cancel was initiated will be dropped from the section by the Office of the Registrar.

Changes to the official schedule of classes for a given session shall be modified only by joint action of the department head, departmental schedule deputy, and the Office of the Registrar Academic & Classroom Scheduling.  An instructor shall not make an unauthorized change in the time and place of a scheduled course.

For all disabled students needing proper scheduling, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students, who will help you with the accommodations that are needed, or go to the Disability Resource Center Web site.
