Standard, Non-standard & Conflicting Courses (Number of Course Sections)

Standard Courses

Standard Courses are course that adhere to the Standard Class Time schedule.  The Standard Course will be 3-hour courses since the Standard Class Time schedule is designed specifically for 3-hour courses.

Non-Standard Courses

Non-standard Courses are course that either fit within the Standard Class Times or are scheduled outside of the Standard Class Times (night courses).

Examples of Non-Standard Courses:

  • MW 10:30-11:20 2-hr courses or 3-hr course with separate Recitation
  • T 9:00-10:15 3-hr Blended course with 75 minutes in traditional format and 75 minutes in online format
  • MW 6:00-7:15 3-hr course

 

Conflicting Courses

Conflicting Courses are those where the scheduled time overlaps two or more Standard Class Times.  These course cause scheduling conflicts for students and can reduce the available courses in which they could enroll.

Examples of Conflicting Courses:

  • MW 12:00-1:15 3-hr courses – This time overlaps with the Standard MWF 11:30-12:20 and MWF 12:30-1:20 class times. MW schedule currently starts at 1:30 p.m. and would start at 1:00 p.m. in the proposed schedule.
  • F 10:30-11:30 1-hr course – The standard time block for a 16 week one-hour course is 50 minutes per week.  The 60 minute time span causes this course to overlap with the MWF 10:30-11:20 and the MWF 11:30-12:20 class times.  By scheduling guidelines, this course should meet for 50 minutes.  If scheduled for 50 minutes, the new F 10:30-11:20 would be a non-standard time, but not cause scheduling difficulties for students.
