Summer 2017 CCS period 1 opens

Collaborative Class Scheduling (CCS) in PeopleSoft will be available Tuesday, September 27 for May/summer 2017 (1175) class schedule production. The following resources for scheduling courses are available:

Fall final exam room scheduling

Fall 2016 final exam room scheduling will begin soon. OCM only assigns final exam classrooms for classes that meet in general purpose classrooms. Final exams for classes that meet in departmental spaces need to be scheduled within their respective departments.

Send an email to ocmsched@umn.edu with any class sections that do not require a classroom during finals week. Use “Fall 2016 Final Exam” for the subject line and include the course and section number(s) in the body of the email.

Please note that there is a new Final Exam Change Request form. This form resides on the newly designed ASR website. The form has been improved, and replaces ASR forms 123 and 163.

Save the dates for Scheduling U

All schedulers are encouraged to attend Scheduling U this fall to learn about new information regarding scheduling. Sessions will be held November 14-18, 2016. Offerings will take place on both Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses. More details will be announced soon.

CCS consultations

If you are a trained Collaborative Class Scheduling (CCS) scheduler who would like a personalized session with one of the ASR trainers, just say the word. CCS can be a thorny, complicated system. The training team is happy to help with wait lists, prerequisites, combined sections, how ECAS and CCS interact, multiple component setup, using Astra Schedule, grading, and/or any other parts of the system that will allow you to understand it more fully.

To schedule an individual session, contact ASR Training & Support at 612-625-2803 or srhelp@umn.edu.

Roll forward for May/summer session 2017 (1175)

Class data entered into CCS rolls forward from the same term in the previous year (e.g., fall 2016 to fall 2017) as a convenience to schedulers. We will roll forward the May/summer session 2017 (1175) on Monday, September 12. This happens two weeks prior to CCS Initial Build Open period to allow for data clean up behind the scenes.

As a reminder, classes with the following criteria will not roll forward:
  • Cancelled sections
  • Tentative sections
  • Topics classes
  • Classes with zero enrollment for the last 2 like terms (excluding directed studies and research)
