Scheduling Guidelines

Scheduling Guidelines

The basic assumption is that there will be a ten-minute break inserted into any course that runs for longer than an hour.

Five-credit courses:
     •	Overall guideline: five-credit courses meet for at least 250 minutes a week according to the following:
     •	Daily for 50 minutes each day.
     •	MWF for 90 minute sessions with courses running from
        § 8:20 - 9:50,
        § 1:00 - 2:30,
        § 3:00 - 4:30 or
        § at any time after 5:00 p.m.
        § We recommend that five-credit courses meeting three times a week not be scheduled for 10:00 - 11:20 or 11:30 
          since these times would overlap and conflict with 4-credit courses scheduled two or four times per week.
     •	Twice a week for 2:30 minutes session as long as the course begins after 5:00 p.m.

Four-credit courses
     •	Overall policy: four-credit course meet for at least 200 minutes per week according to the following:
     •	Four-credit courses meeting for 50 minute sessions will be scheduled MTRF. 
     •	Four-credit courses taught in two, 100 minute sessions would begin at 8:00, 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. 
        [The starting time in the evening ought to remain as flexible as possible.]
     •	We recommend that four-credit courses taught twice a week will be scheduled TR as room availability allows.

Three-credit courses
     •	Three-credit courses taught three times a week will be scheduled MWF.
     •	Three-credit courses taught twice a week will be scheduled on TR for 90 minutes.
        § 8:20 - 9:50,
        § 1:00 - 2:30,
        § 3:00 - 4:30 or
        § at any time after 5:00 p.m.

Two-credit courses
     •	Two-credit courses taught twice a week will be scheduled TR in 50 minute sessions.
     •	Two-credit courses taught in one, 100 minute block will be scheduled on either T or R, or after 3:00 p.m.

Exceptions to these guidelines are based on programmatic needs and can be approved only through the Dean’s office
