Class Schedule

Classes are scheduled Monday through Friday, with most courses meeting three or four times a week for a fifty-minute period. Courses carrying less than full-course credit usually meet less often. Some full-credit courses—notably those with laboratories, studios, or seminar formats—vary from the common pattern. Classes are not scheduled between 2:50 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Thursdays to accommodate Convocations, held on most Thursdays at 3:00 p.m., and Labor meetings, frequently set for 4:00 p.m. The Convocation and Labor meeting times are also to be kept free of private lessons, tutorial sessions, required labor, and student conferences.

To facilitate the building of student class and labor schedules, the Office of Academic Services tries to insure that courses are equally distributed across all class periods. Instructors may not change the time or place of class meetings without the prior approval of the Director of Academic Services.
