Grade entry deadlines and reminders

Fall 2018 grades (regular session) are due on Thursday, December 27, 2018. A complete list of grading due dates, how-to guides, and policies are available on the ASR website >>>

Summer 2019 production cycle

CCS has re-opened for emergent changes to the class schedule for May/summer 2019 (1195). Department schedulers may update class information (cancel, add, or change) directly in CCS. As a reminder, changes to meeting time(s) or to enrollment capacities greater than the current room capacity will result in loss of room assignment.

Room assignments are subject to change prior to the start of the term. OCM encourages instructors to verify their classroom assignment before the first class meeting.

Queued registration for May/summer 2019 begins Thursday, March 7, 2019. To ensure the greatest success for students, please make sure to finalize the following information in the class schedule prior to registration:
  • Confirm session dates are set to the most reflective session. For reference, view session dates by term here.
  • If choosing a set number of credits for a variable credit class, make those changes before students register by emailing ocmsched@umn.edu.
  • Confirm grading basis. If changes need to be made, submit changes through ECAS.
  • All date, day, and time changes should be made before students register to make sure to minimize student conflicts.
(Edit: A previous version and the Scheduling Update had the year in the title listed as 2018 instead of 2019.)

ECAS or ERG questions reminder

Please send all ECAS or ERG questions or concerns directly to srhelp@umn.edu. This will help distribute work among all staff responsible for processing, and your email may be resolved quicker. Thank you.

Spring break 2019 (1193)

If you schedule a class that plans to meet in-person, on-campus during Spring Break next semester (1193), you must fill out this Google Form by Friday, December 7, 2018. The form ensures that a room assignment is retained for your class during Spring Break (March 18 - 22, 2019).

OCM Scheduling has an automated process to cancel class meetings during Spring Break in Astra Schedule by campus. This process assumes it is a holiday break and removes class sections from the Scheduling and Activity Calendars to eliminate conflicts when scheduling events.
