Building and Maintaining the Schedule of Classes
Each department is responsible for creating and updating their list of available course offerings each term. Departmental Curricular Representatives collect and enter information into SIS about classes’ instruction mode, credits, day/time meeting pattern, classroom, instructor(s), enrollment capacity, and more. Each build cycle consists of two main phases – Initial Call and Final Call – before the Schedule of Classes is released. After each phase, Curricular Services flips the Term Update Switch in SIS which temporarily locks Curricular Representatives out of making key updates to the schedule of classes while Curricular Services audits data for accuracy and coordinates assigning General Assignment classrooms.
At all points during the curricular build, we encourage Curricular Reps to refer to our policy and guideline information.
For information, reminders, and step-by-step details of each curricular build phase, scroll down to the tabbed content and FAQ sections. If you have additional help, please contact your Curricular Services representative.
