Course and Room Scheduling in Fall and Spring Semesters

 
 
Fall and Spring Scheduling Summer Scheduling
 

Standard Class Meeting Times in Fall and Spring Semesters

The grid and associated policies defined below apply to all regular for-credit courses offered during the full fall or spring semesters on the Atlanta campus of Georgia Tech. It also applies to both centrally and departmentally scheduled instructional spaces (classrooms, lecture halls, etc.). Separate time grids exist for the full and short summer terms. Study-abroad programs, cohort-based evening/weekend programs (e.g., executive programs), and short courses offered through GTPE are not covered by these grids and scheduling policies.

 

This category includes 1-hour lecture-only courses (1-0-1) and lecture components of courses that include other elements (e.g., 1-6-3 with a 1-hour lab lecture). These lectures MUST be scheduled as follows within the Standard Class Meeting Times (excluding the additional three time blocks):

  • 1-lecture-hour courses/components must be contained within a single 3-lecture-hour Standard Class Meeting Time block.
  • The starting time must match the starting time of the standard block and will be used to determine the final exam schedule.
