This page contains links and information for departmental scheduling staff. We are also glad to point you to a new resource, a Sakai page entitled "RU Administrative Staff." We know that departmental scheduling and administrative staff share a lot of the same interests and concerns, but a sense of community is difficult because everyone works in various offices scattered throughout the campus. This page provides an opportunity to connect with your colleagues for advice, informal tips and training, support, and information.
Schedule of Classes
The Schedule of Classes provides a listing of all university courses. We work with schools and departments on the New Brunswick campuses, as well as the Summer/Winter Session office, to process courses so that they appear on the SOC with all the correct course attributes, prerequisites, cross-listing information, budget codes, and more.
Course Scheduling System
The Course Scheduling System is a Web-based interface that departments and academic units use to communicate course scheduling requests to our office. For access to the sytem or training, please contact us. Our training covers the CSS interface, information on different types of course codes, the process for special permission numbers, and more. Look out for our group training sessions each semester, or call us at any time with questions or to set up an individual session.
Standard Class Periods
The New Brunswick campuses operate on a series of standard course periods. The starting and ending times are staggered by campus to facilitate inter-campus travel. Most courses run for 80 or 55 minutes, although there are exceptions such as double periods and labs that last for more than 80 minutes.
Information on programs of study, courses, academic requirements, and more can be found in a school's course catalogue.
For weather-related and other course cancellations, please check the main university web page.
