Unlike SPU's catalogs, the Time Schedule lists classes being offered for a specific quarter and year. You can create as many offerings of a particular course as you need. You will not, however, be able to offer a class with anything not already set up in the catalog (e.g., if an internship is available for 1-5 credits, a student will not be able to register for 6 credits).
The upcoming academic year's Time Schedule is posted online mid-March. The Summer Sessions' Time Schedule is posted online mid-January for the coming Summer Sessions.
In December, one of the schedule and publications coordinators in Student Academic Services will distribute a spreadsheet of all courses within a department for the following academic year's Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters.
All schedule information from the current academic year will be rolled into the next academic year, so the spreadsheet will list the instructor, enrollment cap, and day and time currently in effect.
If you have any changes for the upcoming year (e.g., changes to instructor, day and time, etc.), note this on the spreadsheet. Then resubmit it to the schedule and publications coordinator. If a specific room is needed or desired, note this when submitting the spreadsheet.
Information you'll see listed on the spreadsheet:
Remember: Any information from a previous year that is not updated in the Catalog or Time Schedule will default into the coming year.
To best utilize our limited classroom space, Seattle Pacific fits courses into the block schedule (PDF).
When scheduling classes during the following time slots, keep in mind:
Classes are not allowed to meet during the following times, which are set aside for University Ministries:
Graduate and evening classes typically begin at 4 p.m. or later.
Rooms are assigned during the yearly Time Schedule process in January. If you anticipate specific room needs (e.g., long tables, whiteboards, etc.), please make these requests known to the staff or faculty member in your department who submits the Time Schedule to Student Academic Services.
You can locate your assigned classrooms through the Time Schedule or through Banner in the "Faculty and Advisor Menu."
To request a room change, contact the schedule and publications coordinator (email@example.com) in Student Academic Services. If you need to reserve a room for a specific course-related activity, including a review session or additional meeting time, contact the SAS schedule and publications coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In case of emergency, SPU is responsible for knowing the location of students and faculty. Therefore, classroom assignments must be accurately recorded in our database. If you decide to switch rooms with another professor, contact Student Academic Services immediately.
Pictures of SPU classrooms are available through SPU Classroom Info. You will also see a list of the technical equipment available in the room.
Seattle Pacific has a variety of campus conference rooms, which may be available for your meeting. Contact the office or department responsible for the room you would like to schedule.
Other room requests, including rooms for special events and campus clubs, must be reserved through Conference Services by calling 206-281-2187.
Unlike the regular academic year, every Summer Time Schedule is built from scratch. In September, the schedule and publications coordinator will distribute the list of courses your department offered during the previous summer.
You may make changes to the Time Schedule throughout the year. Make changes such as instructors, enrollment limits, room assignments, and cancellations and additions by submitting a Time Schedule Change Form (PDF) to the schedule and publications coordinator.
Information regarding final exams:
Archived Time Schedules, beginning in 2007, are available in Excel files.
