Method for determining class meeting time

For traditional, undergraduate courses delivered in an on ground format, the following apply: 

For a traditional 15 to 16 week semester, classes will meet 50 minutes and include 2 additional hours of outside of class work/week per credit hour

A 3 credit hour course meets for 150 in seat minutes per week, and a minimum of 6 additional hours of work expected outside of class.

 For courses meeting in seat for an 8 week term, 70 minutes of seat time and 4 additional hours of outside of class per credit hour.

Regular class times for a 3 credit hour course are 50 minutes/day 3x a week or 75 minutes/day 2x a week.

3 day/week MWF classes meet 8:00-8:50, 9:00-9:50, 10:00-10:50, 11:00-11:50, 12:00-12:50, 1:00-1:50, 2:00-2:50, 3:00-3:30

2 day/week classes must first fill the following TR 75 minute time slots before being allowed to spill into exception MW 75 minute time slots.  These TR times are: 8:00-9:15, 9:25-10:40, 10:50-12:05, 12:30-1:45, 2:00-3:15 and 3:25-4:40.   MW exception times are 8:35-9:50 AM and 3:00-4:15 PM.

Classes after 4PM may be scheduled in ways that differ from the day schedule but must still meet the minimum seat time requirement.

Lab courses and applied riding courses require more in class time and less out of class work per credit hour.

On-ground day classes are scheduled with the following rules:

  • All times must be filled before two courses with the same prefix or required for the same major may be listed at the same time (ie ASL/ITP, ACC/BUS). Then only an upper and lower level course may be at the same time.

  • No two general education requirements from the same area may be offered at the same time.
