Calendar for 2017-18 class scheduling production available

The 2017-18 CCS Production Calendar is now available. Please note that some of the dates are still tentative and will be updated as academic calendars across system campuses are finalized.

As a reminder, you can find additional critical scheduling dates, including previous production calendars and academic session dates, on the OCM Academic Scheduling page.

Canceling classes for fall 2016

There are classes on the fall 2016 (1169) class schedule with a room assignment but no enrolled students. If you do not plan to offer a class, cancel the class in CCS as soon as possible. Simply changing the enrollment capacity to zero and checking the “no print” box in CCS will not release the classroom assignment. The class must be cancelled directly in CCS.

For classes with low enrollment that you plan to cancel, email ocmsched@umn.edu to process your cancellation. If your college requires collegiate approval for cancellation with low enrollment, refer to your college procedures. Remember to always notify enrolled students directly, before requesting a class cancellation.

When creating a new class section, or modifying a section already in place, it is important to always update the mode of instruction on the Basic Data panel of CCS. The following instruction modes are available for selection:

  • P - In person
  • ID - Independent/directed study
  • CE - Continuing education non-term based (online or correspondence)
  • SA - Study abroad
  • CO - Completely online (no face-to-face meetings)
  • PR - Primarily online (one to three face-to-face meetings)
  • PA - Partially online (more than three face-to-face meetings)

Fall 2016 (1169) classroom assignments

Check the Class Schedule to view fall 2016 general purpose classroom assignments. Many departments will notice that placement includes both East Bank and West Bank. If a class is not assigned a room, that means that we are still looking for a general purpose classroom for your class. If you have a departmental space for the class to meet, please email ocmsched@umn.edu to assist with assigning the class to the space. We appreciate your partnership in finding solutions to space shortages.

Please remember: All room assignments are subject to change prior to the start of fall semester. Room assignments are not guaranteed. Changes will continue to be made to the Class Schedule throughout the summer months as departments make adjustments to classes. We will likely need to re-examine room assignments once enrollments are stabilized so that we can adjust for actual, rather than projected, enrollments.
