SAS Faculty Resources: Time Schedule
Enrollment Goals/Section Needs
The following are pieces of the enrollment picture that Student Academic Services reviews annually. This is a glance into the mind of a university registrar:
- Review the persistence goal, and review the need for seats in UCOR/UFDN 2000 and 3000/3100 courses.
- Check to see if we have seniors graduating early, or stopping during Autumn or Winter Quarter who still plan on finishing Spring Quarter.
- Review School of Health Sciences prerequisites that need to be taken.
- School of Health Sciences majors that need specific UFDN 3100/UCOR 3000 sections at a specific time.
- Monitor majors (intended and declared) to see trends.
- Look at number of students on study abroad and track their needs.
- 40 students will be admitted to the University Scholars program.
- About 25–35 students will come in with a direct transfer agreement from community colleges and start their majors, completing all Common and Exploratory Curriculum.
- Check the possible advanced-placement credits, and how those will fulfill Exploratory (based on College Board predictors and the previous class's actual AP credits).
- The above listed numbers narrows down and results in how many University Seminar sections are needed.
Check intended majors:
- Science-major versus non-science majors and impacts on entry courses (BIO 2101 and CHM 1211).
- Art-sequence courses for multiple majors (ART 1102).
Section and Classroom Considerations
- Only duplicate sections can be offered at 3 p.m. or later.
- No Exploratory Curriculum/1000-2000 level courses at 9:30 a.m. Monday/Wednesday/Fridays.
- Having enough sections of general classes in the Arts and Humanities A general classes.
- Balance of nonmajor and major-specific sequences during each block.
- No duplicate sections offered in the same block.
- No additional graduate programs offered during the daytime (no classroom space to accommodate).
- Hold back on scheduling a section of UFDN, art and languages until we determine which is needed based on student needs. For example:
- UFDN 3001 or 2000
- SPN 1101, 1102, or 1103
- ART 1102 or 1103
