New Time Schedule Matrix Coming Soon

Registration tends to be a stressful time for students: anxiously awaiting the time schedule release, constantly checking the calendar for the countdown to their assigned date, and then setting alarms for 6 a.m. in order to snag a spot in desired classes. With a constantly expanding campus and student body, staff and faculty from both academic and non-academic areas have joined

forces to smooth out the registration process and facilitate an increase in class capacity. The three goals of the administration are 1) a comprehensive course schedule made available at least one year in advance, 2) better use of classroom space, and 3) More desirable opportunities for class day/ time schedules.

Students will reap the benefits of the extended time schedule beginning in the 2014-15 school year for the full academic year, including summer. They will also see an increase in classroom capacity by about 30 percent, and some skill-based courses will hold classes three times a week. An email from the Chancellor’s office states, “Each autumn there will be a joint meeting of the registrar, facilities, and schedulers across all academic units to optimize time-of-day and quarter-of-year relationships among key courses. This is made possible by the excellent collaborative efforts of units across campus, and great analyses conducted by the Center for Web and Data Science.”
