Each board of study is responsible for submitting its course schedule to the chair or director by the deadlines set by the Office of the Registrar, which are published on the Course Scheduling dashboard.
Course information is copied from fall to fall and spring to spring. Boards of study are asked to standardize schedules as much as possible and submit any necessary changes, additions, updates, or deletions by the required deadline. Boards of study are responsible for:
- confirming that the courses offered each fall or spring are reflected on the eight-semester graduation plan submitted by the board of study and in the course descriptions on the program sites, which are pulled directly from the registrar’s database
- submitting a completed course proposal for any new course and when reinstating a course (i.e., a previously offered course that does not appear in the course descriptions on the program site); the form is available on the registrar’s Course Scheduling Dashboard, under “Additional Resources”
- ensuring that an appropriate number of core curriculum/general education courses are offered within their board of study
To ensure that certain days or times are neither overbooked nor underutilized, the college must also maintain a schedule with classes evenly distributed throughout the week.
More information on course scheduling, including additional guidelines, deadlines, grid analysis, and core curriculum/general education offerings is available on the registrar’s Course Scheduling dashboard (on the registrar‘s site under Faculty and Staff).
