Beginning Fall 2014, MWF classes will start at 8:00 a.m. and run with 15 minutes between classes (8:00, 9:05, 10:10, 11:15…). This is a change from the current 7:30 a.m. start time for the first regularly scheduled class. Downtown classes, as well as those on the main campus, will follow this schedule. Tuesday-Thursday classes will remain as they are now (8:00 a.m. start time, 75 minute classes with 15 minutes in between). The change to an 8:00 a.m. start time for MWF classes was recommended by an Ad Hoc committee formed by Provost Einhellig to study class utilization at the 7:30 a.m. start time. The SGA was consulted in this decision and they support this change in scheduling. Departments will need to begin using these start times when Fall 2014 scheduling opens in November. Summer scheduling of classes will remain as it has been.
