Summer schedule for Scheduling Update

Scheduling Update will be taking a short break over the summer. There will be no regularly scheduled Scheduling Updates
in June or July. It will resume again on August 1, running on the
first and third Wednesday of the month through the academic year.

Scheduling update: Summer projects impacting classroom availability

From lighting updates to furniture replacements to technology upgrades,
general purpose classrooms and study spaces often get a refresh during
the summer months. Project team and technicians will be on campus this
summer in the following buildings: Amundson, Anderson, Burton, Ford,
Hodson, Kolthoff, Ruttan, Skok, Willey, Vincent, and more. To learn
more about Office of Classroom Management (OCM) projects, visit the OCM projects webpage.  

In addition to our internal projects, Capital Planning and Project Management
also has a lot of work to complete this summer. One of their projects,
which will directly impact many general purpose classrooms, is the
waterproofing of the exterior plaza this summer in St. Paul. Since the
plaza sits above both Ruttan and Magrath classrooms, many of these
classrooms will be held offline for the duration of the project. Please
review the General Purpose Classroom Schedule Viewer for current information on classroom closures.  

Scheduling update: Course sections using 7-week sessions during spring semester

Academic Support Resources (ASR) is recalibrating the academic calendar
to match University policy. Starting spring 2013, the first 7-week
session (also known as A-term or session 009) will meet for only 7
weeks (Tuesday, January 22 to Monday, March 11). In years past, there
have been additional days added to the first 7-week session. If you
schedule A-term classes, please make sure your instructors are aware of
the change.

The second 7-week session (also known as B-term or
session 010) will also meet for 7 weeks. There is no change to the
dates of this session. Spring break will continue to fall between the
first and second 7-week sessions.

Scheduling update: Spring 2013 (1133) scheduling

Room assignments for spring 2013 (1133) will appear on the Class Schedule
on May 22 when ECS period 3 opens. At that time, you will have access
in ECS to make updates to course information (cancel, change, or add). Please note:
changes made to meeting times, enrollment capacities, and/or requested
room capacities will result in the loss of the classroom assignment.

Scheduling update: Room assignments for May/summer session (1125) and fall (1129)

Room assignments for May/summer session and fall 2012 are available on the One Stop Class Schedule.
Please review the assignments for your department to ensure all
classes requiring a general purpose classroom have been assigned a
room. Note: room assignments are subject to change prior to the start
of term. While this usually only affects a small number of classes,
always encourage instructors in your department to verify their
classroom assignment before the first class meeting.

Scheduling update: Verify instructor information for spring 2012 (1123)

To ensure that instructors have access to their online grade rosters,
please verify all of your spring 2012 courses. Also, be sure to include
the instructor assigned for course sections that require grades. See Grade Reporting for more information about how and when to enter grades.

Grades for most full semester and second
7-week session University courses on the Twin Cities campus should be
entered online by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 16. If you have
questions, contact the Student Records training & support team at srhelp@umn.edu or 612-625-2803.
