NOTES
1   With the goal of a more sustainable scheduling model for a growing student body, several groups are working to simplify all standard day/time patterns. Though the new schedule has not been finalized, we know exceptions will essentially be eliminated in order to best utilize classroom space. To help manage this ongoing effort, new software will soon replace current processes entirely, and will enforce new guidelines.  (Eric Humphrey, Sr Registrar -- Feb 2017)
2   Exceptions to standard start times can be requested for lab sections only (where exclusive scheduling rights exist for department lab space).
3   The standard start times have been expanded to include 4-, 5-, and 6-contact hour sections.  Academic Scheduling will enforce the new standard times beginning Spring 2012.
4   Under the direction of President Holland, Academic Scheduling will adjust all 3-contact hour sections to fit a standard grid. This change will maximize our space utilization in the morning, while making the afternoon more appealing for students and faculty. Academic Scheduling will enforce the new standard times beginning Spring 2010.
5   For 1- and 2-contact hour sections, simply begin on the hour OR start at a standard 3-contact hour time.  Refer to Contact Hour Requirements for minimum/maximum time ranges as defined by NWCCU accreditation standards.
6   Evening start times (beginning 1700 or later) can vary according to preference or need.
7   Any variation from the standard day/time patterns listed must be pre-approved by Academic Scheduling.  Note that variations are given last priority in the room scheduling process, and if granted, are effective for one semester only.  To be considered, email your request to Academic_Scheduling@uvu.edu and include the following information:
  • Semester
  • CRN
  • Subject
  • Course
  • Section
  • Current day/time pattern
  • Desired day/time pattern
  • Justification (i.e., science experiment requires duration)
