The Academic Scheduling Office oversees the building of the schedule of classes for the Fall and Spring terms. This includes the assigning of rooms to general lecture/discussion/seminar classes as well as building requisites used for registration. The office fulfills computer lab requests for the four general-purpose computer labs and also assists and confirms classroom reservations for academic related events within 25Live.
The second main function of the Academic Scheduling Office is maintaining the course catalog within PeopleSoft/MySSU. This includes adding new courses as well as updating or inactivating existing courses approved by the EPC (Educational Policy Committee).

Spring 2022 In-person Classes First 3 weeks
Most Sonoma State University classes will pivot to an online format through February 11, 2022. During the first three weeks of the spring semester limited courses of fewer than 50 students have been authorized to be taught in-person. These courses include fine and performing arts studio courses, courses that require the use of specialized equipment or lab equipment, courses with an activity or clinical component. These exceptions are consistent with the decisions made during Fall 2020.

General Purpose Classroom Refresh Initiative
The General Purpose Classroom Refresh Initiative began in the Office of the Provost in 2018 with the recognition by faculty, staff, students, and administrators that many of our classrooms were in poor condition and needed technology upgrades to ensure the highest quality teaching and learning possible.

New Scheduling Modules
In December 2019, the Academic Senate approved a new set of course scheduling modules to be implemented for Fall 2020. These modules offer maximum flexibility for faculty and academic departments while providing students with a standardized set of meeting times and at least 10 minutes to move between classes with greater ease. The new modules have been designed to have minimal impact to faculty in terms of pedagogy, course enrollment targets, and course meeting patterns. All courses will now start on the hour or half hour.
These modules were designed in a collaborative and consultative manner as a partnership between APARC and the Office of the Provost. APARC consulted with Deans, Department Chairs, and faculty in a variety of departments and was presented at the Academic Senate in several phases of development. The new scheduling modules will lead to better course planning and will better address student demand.
