Deadlines for approvals, data entry, class notes, and midterms are steps in the production schedule. Class placement, offering publication, and enrollment dates are also included.
Annual Class Data Roll
Each February, class data from the previous academic year (fall, winter, and spring terms) are rolled over to form the basis of the upcoming year’s class schedule. After the roll becomes active, departments are given access to begin the process of updating and scheduling classes for the coming academic year.
Working with faculty, department schedulers add new classes, delete classes that will not be offered, enter expected class size, and request class times. All three terms for the academic year are available for update.
After data have been entered, an algorithm is run each term to place as many classes as possible at the times requested. A period of adjustment follows to find rooms for classes that could not be placed.
When the Schedule of Classes is published for fall quarter, tentative class data for winter and spring quarters are also published.
