Academic & Classroom Scheduling

Academic Scheduling provides support to academic departments in the development of the schedule of classes and assignment of classroom space.

Classroom Scheduling Protocols

Classroom facilities are primarily for use by students, faculty and staff for activities and programs that are directly related to the basic educational functions of teaching, research, and preparation of scholarly material. Every effort is made to ensure that classrooms are assigned fairly, used appropriately, and accommodate the University's academic and instructional needs. Classroom Scheduling Protocols are designed to ensure that quarterly course offerings are scheduled in a manner that permits access to available offerings by the greatest number of students and that allows the best match between the specific instructional needs of the faculty and courses being offered and the existing facilities.

Scheduling Production Calendars

The Class Schedule Production Schedule provides production deadlines for the Class Schedule, including data entry, training for new staff, course changes and more.


Banner is a system used by the University of Oregon to record, classify, and retrieve student and course data. DuckWeb is the University of Oregon's online information system for students, and all faculty are granted access to the DuckWeb Faculty Menu, where they can enter or update grades, create Course Web Links and more.

Banner training sessions provide an overview of the Student Records Privacy Policy and an introduction to the basic Student Banner query screens and how to navigate them. Space is limited, so it is necessary to register for the course if you wish to attend.

Data entry in the Banner system is conducted using SSASECT. See: Banner Data Entry Instructions.

The Banner Guide, put out by the Business Affairs office, describes a a series of procedures for requesting information on the nine BQS forms.

DuckWeb Faculty Menu Access

DuckWeb is the University of Oregon's online information system for both students and faculty. While all faculty have access to the Faculty Menu, access to some menu items is granted based on certain conditions.

Faculty who are instructors of record will automatically have access to three menu items: View Class List, View Teaching Schedule, and Grade Rosters. Faculty involved with a learning community (FIG, TRIG, or Pathway) will also have a fourth menu item, View Fig/Pathway Schedule. The Student Advising and Departmental Class Lists menu items are available upon request.

Course Attribute Codes

Course attributes are used by departments to code courses for degree audit purposes. Attribute codes are entered directly into Banner during the scheduling data entry period in order to signify that a course meets an upper division requirement, an emphasis area, or any other major/minor requirement that is coded in the Degree Audit system. Departments can also use course attributes with other departments.

Course Evaluations

Course Evaluations allow students to confidentially rate their UO learning experience, and provide data and feedback that benefits everyone at the UO. Course evaluation data helps faculty to improve courses and teaching methods, and to determine whether course content is meeting the needs of their students. Department chairs review course evaluation data to assess their faculty and the value of courses offered in their department. University committees include course evaluation data as part of faculty reviews, to determine promotion and tenure. Students can choose courses based on the course evaluation ratings available to them.

Degree Guide

The Degree Guide assists faculty advisors and students with viewing progress toward current declared majors using up-to-date University Catalog requirements.

Degrees, Majors, Minors and Certificates

In addition to completing an academic major, students who plan to receive a bachelor's degree from the University of Oregon may also complete additional majors, minors, or both. Students may also pursue options within majors or minors, which are additional ways of focusing academic interests.
