Important Notice: Beginning Fall 2014, MWF classes will start at 8:00 a.m. and run with 15 minutes between classes. 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). Summer scheduling of classes will remain as it has been.
Throughout all construction periods, meeting patterns (meeting days and times) will be reviewed by Scheduling Support. Sections scheduled with non-standard meeting days and/or times must have Dean and Provost Office approval. Building and room will be removed from any section that has not received approval.

Key Points to Keep in Mind when Building the Class Schedule
- Double check each field to ensure accuracy of information. The fields may not be set exactly the same as they were at the end of the previous semester.
- Check the campus field (in Banner) for accuracy. Classes that meet on the Springfield campus four or less times a semester, should not have the location field entered as Springfield (all Springfield sections are charged Student Service Fees).
- Enter specific section titles for topics courses and variable content courses. Abbreviate the best you can and enter the full title in the section comment using the Section Syllabus Form under the Options menu in SSASECT. The abbreviated title on the main page of SSASECT is what appears on the students' transcripts. The long title only appears on the class schedule search.
