Scheduling Update: September 1, 2010

This summer Robert McMaster, Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education, established a working group to consider the current practices for reserving seats in course sections for particular cohorts of students. The recommendations from the group are as follows:

  • Departments should have the authority to reserve seats within departmental courses for department priorities.
  • Approval for requests of reserved seats initiated by specific colleges, departments, and/or programs outside the home college/department of the course is at the discretion of the individual college and/or departmental home of the course.
  • If seats have not been previously released by departments, Academic Support Resources will release all reserved seats on the Friday before the first day of class each semester.
  • All reserved seats, including those held for departmental priorities, must have a start and release date.
