Tate Lab of Physics renovation

Since June 2015, Tate Lab of Physics has been offline for a full interior renovation. It is scheduled to be completed in summer 2017. All existing spaces are being removed and reconfigured, and new space will be added along the Church Street side of the building.

To learn more about future classroom capacities and to see classroom renderings, review this slide set.  

To see photos of the ongoing renovation, visit the OCM Classroom Projects page. General project information is available on the Capital Planning & Project Management site.

May/summer session wait list process reminder

Cancel classes that will not be offered

For summer 2016 (1165) and fall 2016 (1169), there are a large number of classes on the schedule with low or no enrollment. If you do not plan to offer a class, make sure to cancel the class as soon as possible. Collegiate processes vary for classes that have enrollments. If you are not sure about the process, please contact ocmsched@umn.edu.

Please note: Changing a class’s enrollment capacity to zero and checking the "no print" box in Collaborative Class Scheduling (CCS) will not cancel a class, delete a class, or release the classroom assignment. Always cancel a class that will not be offered for a given term.

In CCS, schedulers do not have the ability to delete individual class sections. Instead, classes that will not be offered should be cancelled.

During CCS open initial build: Schedulers should cancel class sections that will not be offered. OCM Scheduling runs a query daily to delete classes that have been canceled the prior workday.

During CCS open emergent changes: Schedulers should still cancel classes that will no longer be offered, but they will not be deleted by OCM Scheduling.
