The Academic Scheduling Process
Should be scheduled on TuTh (and according to the "Three-Unit Courses: Scheduling Pattern", below), and be scheduled back-to-back (rather than alternating with 3-unit courses).

|0800 - 0850||0800 - 0915|
|0900 - 0950||0930 - 1045|
|1000 - 1050||1100 - 1215|
|1100 - 1150||1230 - 1345|
|1200 - 1250||1400 - 1515|
|1300 - 1350||1530 - 1645|
MW or WF scheduling for (75 minutes each session) will NOT be permitted prior to 1600 unless remaining hours are also scheduled.
Scheduling a single 150-minute session on M, W, or F will NOT be permitted unless the other two days are similarly scheduled during the same time period and the same room (except prior to 1500). Beginning at 1500, evening classes may start on the hour (1500, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900) and run for 150 minutes (plus time for breaks). Classes meeting for two times would begin at the same times and go for 75 minutes each session.
MW, MF, or WF scheduling (for 110 minutes each session) will be permitted beginning at 1600.
* Classes are scheduled for 110 minutes to allow a 10 minute break.
Enrollment capacity should never exceed the room capacity because of safety issues. Room capacity is established by a state formula
based on the sqaure footage of the room and the type of seating. Do NOT use "Permission Numbers" to add students if the enrollment is
greater than the room capacity.
On large capacity rooms, (those with seating capacities greater than 60) only schedule classes if expected enrollment is at least 50% of the room size.
All classes scheduled for Friday after 1600 (including MWF) or Saturday or Sunday, must be reserved through in PeopleSoft (i.e., two
meeting pattern rows).
Weekend classes will need to meet the number of hours shown below. While regular classes sessions are 50 minutes, the following is required to allow for needed breaks throughout the day.
1 unit = 15 hours
2 units = 30 hours
3 units = 45 hours
1 unit = 750 minutes
If a Topics Course has been offered 8 semesters or more, it must be converted to a new course before it can be offered again. This rule applies even when the title has been slightly modified.
