Class Schedule Development

The Vice President of Instruction supervises the preparation of the college class schedule for each term. The schedule is typically published online in late-March for the summer session and fall semester and in late-October for the spring semester.

The area deans, in consultation with faculty and department chairs, carry out the preliminary activities of schedule development. Factors considered in schedule-making are:

  • District and college priority guidelines including student success and completion
  • Review of past enrollment patterns and estimates of enrollments in various classes
  • Balance of assignments cover day, evening, and center classes and to meet budget and FTE allocations
  • Qualifications of faculty members in terms of preparation of interest in subject fields
  • Number of preparations and formula hour loads
  • Balance of hour assignments for faculty
  • Availability of rooms and necessary facilities

The college will utilize a variety of software tools to meet student need/demand as well as to most efficiently use available resources.
