Spring 2017 (1173) scheduling

Room assignments for spring 2017 (1173) will be available on Class Search when CCS re-opens on May 24. All room assignments are subject to change prior to the start of term as we work to accommodate all class activity. 

The Scheduling Unit is still working on placing many classes during the busiest times of day. If we are unable to place your classes, we will be reaching out to individual departments to determine if the class days or times are available to be changed, or if a departmental space is available for the class. As a reminder, large classroom space is at a premium with Tate Lab of Physics and Mechanical Engineering buildings offline. 

Beginning May 24, you can update class information (cancel, change, or add). Please note: changes made to meeting times, enrollment capacities, and requested room capacities will result in the loss of the classroom assignment. Please consult with the Scheduling Unit if you are adding classes during peak times to ensure that a classroom will be available.

Make final changes to variable credit classes & grading basis prior to semester start

With the May/summer session beginning next week, it is imperative to make final changes to classes requiring set credits and/or changes to grade basis. After the term has begun, the grading basis and the number of credits a class is being offered at cannot be altered.

If you need to change the number of credits for which a class is offered, from a variable number to a set number, email ocmsched@umn.edu to make the change. If you need to make a change to the grading basis of a course, submit changes directly through ECAS.
