Schedule Production Tips

  1. Review all of the classes in your department or division.
  2. Delete the classes that are not going to be offered.
  3. For classes you are keeping, verify that the class information such as start/end dates, meeting days and times, and room are correct.
  4. Does the room belong to your division?  If the room does not belong to your division, then you have to change the room to "TBA" or place it in a room that belongs to your division.  If the class was using the room last year, it does not mean that it can continue to use the same room. 
  5. Leave the Room Field in SSASECT form BLANK for any classes that you cannot find a room for, the Scheduling Coordinator will compile a list of classes with no room assignments and find spaces for them. 
  6. New class? Add it in Banner, and don't forget SSAACCL form. This form determines all the important A&R dates, such as census, last day to add or the drop class, etc.
  7. Contract type is "FO" for full-time overload during fall, winter, and spring quarters, and "AC" for part-time.  In the summer term, use "SU" for both overload and part-time.
  8. For assignment type of 2, 4 and 8, don't forget to include Position Number, Position Number Suffix, and Contract Type in SIAASGN form.
  9. Accounting Method for most classes in the regular academic terms is "W (weekly)", and in the summer quarter it is "D (daily)".  If you are not sure please contact the Scheduling Coordinator. 
  10. Accounting Method for Online learning (more than 50% online) class is "IW" during fall, winter, and spring terms and "ID" during the summer quarter.  Additionally, for distance learning classes, indicate code "72" on the first key block of SSASECT form, if you use other codes, students will not find the distance learning class when they query on Banner Self Service. Additionally, if you forget, going back later to add in the code "72" requires removal of the instructor, and meeting information.
  11. Class that is open to a selective group of students can contain seat count and wait list, and still be restricted to specific students through usage of Student Attribute, Student Cohort, or Special Approval--see A&R for details.
  12. A hybrid class is defined as a class with face-to-face meeting and less than 50% online. A hybrid class requires a footnote detailing when the class meets physically and online, as well as the day/time the instructor will be available online. If the footnote does not specify the necessary information then it cannot be listed as a hybrid per the VP of Instruction.  The Accounting Method is "IW" during fall, winter, and spring terms, and "ID" for summer quarter.
